This article illustrates how to get started with the CORE9G25-CON


In order to get started with the CORE9G25-CON Board you need:

  • a CORE9G25-CON Board
  • a DC 12V adapter power supply
  • an ethernet cable to wire the CORE9G25-CON to your LAN
  • an active DHCP server on your LAN
  • a PC with Linux or Windows wired on the same LAN
  • a Serial cable with TTL-RS232 adapter board(if you need the serial debug, see the chapter "Debug Serial Port Interface")

CORE9G25-CON kit which contain all you need to follow this article are available on the our webShop. Each single part is also available.

Step-by-step guide

  • Plug in the LAN cable
  • Connect the serial cable(if you need the serial debug, see the chapter "Debug Serial Port Interface") .
  • Insert the power supply cable

CORE9G25-CON Board has not power switches on-board so when the power is plugged in, it turns on immediately.

After about 20 second the red led on CORE9G25 module will start to blink in this way:


this means that the Linux Kernel is loading.

If the CORE9G25 doesn't blink it hasn't found a valid Linux Kernel image on Nand flash, see the follow chapter to update the system to the Nand Flash.

If you are using the Debug Port Interface, you will see the boot sequence on your terminal emulator.

After about 30 seconds Linux will be on and you will reach it via LAN.

The CORE9G25 Board gets its IP address from your DCHP server so in order to know what this IP is, read Discover the IP address assigned by DHCP.

After the system boot success, it is possible to communicate with the CORE9G25-CON Board using:

  • a SSH client like Putty on Windows or SSH on Linux to have access to the command line prompt (Using the SSH session)
  • a Serial Terminal Emulator like Putty, Hyperterminal on Windows or Minicom on Linux using the serial debug port(Debug Port Interface)
