                Installation and Setup

                Ensure the GNSS antenna is connected to the development board using the provided RF coaxial cable. Use a Type-C data cable to connect the C2-M2X to a Windows computer. The kit comes with necessary cables for a hassle-free setup.


                      Precautions for Using the C2-M2X EVB

                      The C2-M2X EVB is designed for use in laboratory or engineering development settings. To ensure safe and efficient operations, please adhere to the following precautions:

                      Avoid Hot-Plugging:

                      Do not perform hot-plugging on the development board's interfaces or on any carrier boards. Connecting or disconnecting components while the board is powered can cause damage.

                      Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Protection:

                      Electrostatic discharge can harm the development board's hardware. Employ necessary anti-static measures, such as using an ESD wrist strap, before unpacking and handling the board.

                      Safe Handling of the Board:

                      When handling the development board, grasp it by the edges to minimize the risk of ESD damage. Avoid direct contact with any exposed metal parts on the board.

                      Optimal Placement:

                      Place the C2-M2X development board on a stable, dry, and flat surface. Ensure it is positioned away from heat sources, sources of electromagnetic interference, radiation sources, and equipment sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, such as medical devices.

                      By following these precautions, you can help ensure the longevity and proper functioning of your C2-M2X EVB.
