Python library for U-blox cellular modules.

Project description

======
U-blox
======

Python library for U-blox cellular modules.

Installation
============

Python version supported: 3.6+

.. code-block::

pip install ublox


About
=====

The ublox library gives a python interface to AT Commands via serial interface
to Ublox modules. This can used for testing and profiling of modules and
technologies or you might want to hook up a small python program on an embedded
device to send data over, for example, NB-IoT.

Supported Modules
=================

* SARA-N211
* SARA-R410
* SARA-R412

Example Use:
============

.. code-block::

module = SaraR4Module(serial_port='/dev/tty.usbmodem14111')
module.setup()
module.connect(operator=24001)
sock = module.create_socket()
sock.sendto(b'Message To Echo Server', ('195.34.89.241', 7))
sock.close()

Documentation
=============
Full documentation can be found at https://ublox.readthedocs.io/

Development
===========

The library is currently used for testing infrastructure in Sweden. If you find
problems in your country please open an issue so we can make the library as
general as possible.

If you have special need there is always the possibility to used the lower
level API for AT Commands via ._at_action()

If you have use-cases that could be solved with more options on functions, make
the change yourself and open a pull request or open an issue.

Security
^^^^^^^^

v0.1.3 (2018-12-04)
-------------------

Added
^^^^^
* Timeouts to reads
* Better logging to find problems in threaded environments.
* Better exception descriptions.


v0.1.2 (2018-11-22)
-------------------

Changed
^^^^^^^
* Callback handling. Apparently it got object referencing problems when running
multiple threads using and instance of the module class.

Fixed
^^^^^
* Small bug when a UDP message is not received we parsed and empty response.


v0.1.1 (2018-11-21)
-------------------

Added
^^^^^
* Added functionality to read data from UDP sockets.
* Added interface for socket.recvfrom() to socket class.
* Small wait time on writes not to block interface.
* Current RAT information
* Possibility to set socket in listening mode


Changed
^^^^^^^
* update_radio_statistics is now a public function
* callback registration process

v0.1.0 (2018-10-24)
--------------------

Added
^^^^^
* Arg to specify if the module is roaming or when connecting specify if roaming so that we know what to expect in the connection status.
* capture_urc flag to _at_command(). So that it is possible to collect the URCs before the OK response.
* Added the UbloxSocket and UDPSocket classes to be able to handle sockets independent from module.

Changed
^^^^^^^
* Removed operators name and map. Now you need to specify the operator with its MNO_ID. Swedish Telia is for example 24001.
* Renamed eps_reg_status to registration_status. Even if it does not follow the naming in the ublox manual it is clearer in the code what it is.
* create_socket now returns a UbloxSocket subclass.


v0.0.2
------

Added
^^^^^
* Better support for R412.
* errors for AT commands and module errors will throw python exceptions.
* setting bands on r4 modules.


Changed
^^^^^^^
* Renamed function to set up the module from init to setup to have a clearer API.
* Improvement of api and made methods common.

v0.0.1
------
First version. Support for SARA-N211 and initial support for SARA-R412
