HL8518 USB Drivers for Linux Distributions


#1

Hi,

I’m currently trying to test a Sierra module HL8518 with the suitable development kit. However, I was unable to find USB drivers for Linux distributions, though I cannot test the functionalities of my module.

Is there an other solution here than switching to a Windows distribution ?

Thanks for your answers

Hi,

HL8518 will us ethe standard CDC-ACM and ECM drivers present in most Linux distributions so no need to load new drivers. Depending on the at+kusbcomp setting in the unit you should see multiple /dev/ttyACM ports enumerate when plugging the USB into the system.

Regards
