Jetson TX2 driver support for 4G module


I am using the LM960A18 telit LTE module and we would like to use mbim (or any other interface) for data connections.

Current kernel version on Tx2 is 4.9.140-tegra

Please let me know if it is possible to customize/update the kernel to 4.10.

You may need to build your kernel, please refer to NVIDIA Jetson Linux Developer Guide : Kernel Customization | NVIDIA Docs

Hi @kayccc,

Thanks for the response.

Can you help me know what changes are required for this exact module(LM960A18 telit LTE).

Please find the datasheet of the module attached below:

Hey @kayccc,

Can you please let me know what changes are needed in the TX2 pinmux sheet to make the module compatible?


We don’t have experience regarding 4G module.

If this is usb interface, then you don’t need to change pinmux. Just consult with the vendor for their driver and see if this driver is compatible with kernel4.9.

Hi @WayneWWW ,

It is a (mPCIe) card.

As below:

Same. PCIe also no need to change the pinmux.

Hi @WayneWWW,

Just an update:
After connecting the module via USB to TX2 board, we are not getting any info about drivers. The only driver that shows there is for serial but for MBIM it is not there.

Please find the ss below:

Hi @WayneWWW @kayccc

We are using USB interface to connect Telit Module(4G module).
When I connect this module to PC and TX2 system, there is difference in lsusb command response.

Please refer the attached screenshots below:

Thank you.

Then you can install the driver you need…
