A9G Pudding board - New GPS tracker solution

Posted by dhanishvijayan 28/08/2018 2 Comment(s) eTracker,

Hi Readers, 

We are in an extreme excitement to introduce the mindblowing A9G pudding board, which can be used for GPS tracking application. And the main highlight is that you can program the GSM modem directly through UART, Thus no separate micro-controller is required for the applications. The demos provided along with the SDK are straightforward to implement.



The instructions given below assumes that you have a recent version of the Linux OS(Debian based) installed.


  • Download the SDK and toolchain from the following links.


Toolchain - http://test.ai-thinker.com/csdk/CSDTK42_Linux.tar.gz 

SDK -  https://github.com/Ai-Thinker-Open/GPRS_C_SDK/releases   (GPRS_C_SDK_Vxxxx.7z required)


  • Preparing the host system for development


1) Install the required packages using the following commands

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt install build-essential gcc-multilib g++-multilib lib32z1
sudo apt install build-essential libqt4-qt3support itcl3 itk3 iwidgets4


2) Extract the toolchain and SDK to the directory say ~/projects


3) Prepare the compilation environment

sudo chmod -R 777 ~/projects/CSDTK

cd ~/projects/CSDTK
./setup.sh ./ ~/projects

this will setup the environment for compilation


Next, compile some example projects

sudo chmod -R 777 ~/projects/GPRS_C_SDK

cd ~/projects/GPRS_C_SDK
./build.sh demo 

Note: For serious development please use mature IDE like Eclipse along with CDT. This will help to reduce development time with the autocompletion features and code linting and refactoring.

The toolchain and SDK zip file error, couldn't extract. Please check it update.

Please download the file again. The file is hosted by the manufacturer directly. There is nothing we can do about it.
