Additional Kit Components

  • Advanced Power Module (APM) Cable:
    • Smart and advanced power supply converter board, configured into a cable, to connect power to Snapdragon Flight from either the provided 5V DC power supply or a 2S-6S LiPo battery (regulated to 5V).
    • The cable circuitry prioritizes the 5V DC external supply whenever present, and secondly the battery.
    • Concurrent use of 2S-6S battery and external DC supply connected to the APM cable is supported.
  • Serial Console Adapter
    • Customer adapter to support standard Linux console interface
  • Custom FTDI Debug Cable
    • Custom FTDI debug cable (only 3 pins instead of the 6 provided by FTDI) with standard-A type USB plug for connecting the serial console adapter to Snapdragon Flight.
  • 5V DC power supply
