Before You Begin

A caution alerts you to an operating procedure, practice, condition, or statement that must be strictly observed to prevent equipment damage or destruction, or corruption or loss of data. Vorsicht: Ein Vorsichtshinweis macht Sie auf ein Betriebsverfahren, eine Praktik, einen Zustand oder eine Anweisung aufmerksam, die genauestens befolgt werden muss, um Schden oder eine Zerstrung der Maschine bzw. die Zerstrung oder den Verlust von Daten zu vermeiden. This icon appears at the beginning of any procedure in this manual that could cause you to touch components (such as printed circuit boards) that are susceptible to damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD). When you see this icon, you must follow standard ESD guidelines to avoid damaging the equipment you are servicing. Because finger oils can impede the performance of scanner parts and dissolve the reflective coating of the plastic mirrors, always wear finger cots or non-powdered latex gloves when handling optical parts.

Note: Notes either provide extra information about a topic or contain special instructions for handling a particular condition or set of circumstances.

Service Training (Education Services) RoHS Procedures ESD Procedures Safety Training Environmental Procedures These procedures should be available at each Intermec Service Center.

Protecting Delicate Electronic Components


As Intermec moves to surface mount technology and smaller components, our products become more vulnerable to damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD). Recently Intermec experienced spare board assembly failures in the field that were traced to improper ESD protection while handling or installing the boards. This is costly and can be easily avoided. Intermecs Service department recommends that all field personnel follow three guidelines to prevent ESD damage: Use an ESD mat and wrist strap when repairing and replacing printed circuit boards. Before you open any Intermec product, place that product on an ESD mat and ground the product. Follow all standard ESD procedures for your workplace. This icon appears at the beginning of any procedure in this manual that could cause you to touch components (such as printed circuit boards) that are susceptible to damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD). When you see this icon, you must follow standard ESD guidelines to avoid damaging the equipment you are servicing. The Everett facility uses several vendors for ESD products. One USA vendor is DESCO Industries, Inc., which you can reach at telephone (909) 598-2753 or on the World Wide Web at www.desco.com. This table

Be aware that WAN radio options are being released incrementally. Currently, no GPS or CDMA options are released. Note that the CDMA radio modules are not a replaceable unit on the CDMA Radio Option Boards, but the GPRS radio modules are replaceable on the GPRS Option Boards. Note that there are two GPRS antennas (FCC and ETSI), but a single antenna is used for all CDMA versions. The simultaneous combination of 802.11b/g and Bluetooth and one flavor of WAN radio is supported.

GPRS Radio Option Boards


The GPRS Radio Option Board is an OEM module from Sierra Wireless. It is supplied in two versions: with GPS and without GPS. The interface to the MLB is via dual comm ports (one 4W UART and one FF UART). A piggyback radio module plugs onto the radio option board to provide two options: GPRS-FCC and GPRS-ETSI.

Wall Charger
The external wall charger is a universal module that can accept IEC320 power cords allowing the power cord to be selected based on the country power standards. The wall charger must be used with a snap-on docking connector adapter to be able to attach power to the unit.

Dock Power
Three types of docks are offered. The vehicle dock has protection circuitry for the computer to limit the transients found in a vehicle power system according to SAE J1113. The vehicle dock also has reverse polarity protection in the event that battery connection is accidentally reversed.

Cigarette Lighter Adapter


A cigarette lighter adapter is available that operates from 12 or 24 VDC vehicle systems and provides protected power to the docking connector on the computer. The adapter has a connector that connects to the docking connector on the bottom of the unit.

Internal Power Sources


Battery
The primary internal power source is the main battery. The battery contains two lithium-ion cells housed in a plastic case. The case is sealed and also contains a circuit board that has the protection circuitry required to protect the battery cells from abuse. The circuit board also contains a thermistor that provides a way to measure the battery temperature to insure the battery is only charged when its cell temperature is between 0 and 50C

(32 and 122F). The protection circuitry prevents overcharging, over discharging and protection against shorting the pack. Available Battery Packs
Description Standard Pack Extended Pack Part Number 318-016-001 318-016-002 Specifications 3.6 VDC, 2200 mA-hr min, 3.6 VDC, 4000 mA-hr min

The mating connector for the battery pack is an eight position, spring loaded, gold plated set of contacts in a 2 by 4 matrix. Note the battery plus and minus contacts are duplicated to handle the high current surges and also to better insure contact in shock or vibration. The BATT_TEMP signal is used to measure the internal pack temperature to prevent charging below 0 C and above 50 C. If at any time during charging, the battery temperature wanders outside this range, the charging will cease until the temperature returns to the proper charging range.

Supercap
The supercap is a 2.4-farad, 2.3-volt capacitor, part number 302-159-502. The supercap can provide power to the unit in suspend mode for a minimum of five minutes. Its purpose is to supply power during battery changes in the field (without external power applied).

The supercap is located on the top of the MLB under the Gore snapSHOT shield

A fully discharged supercap takes ten minutes to charge. The supercap is located on the MLB under the shield under the radio frame (for radio option board and 802/BT module). For additional information on the supercap, see the Power Subsystem section in this chapter.

Power States
The functionality of the CN3 is highly dependent on the availability of power. In order to extend operational usage and preserve stored data, battery power is conserved by automatically shutting down functions when not needed. As battery power diminishes, the unit protects stored data by automatically shutting down. Functional States for the CN3

Theory of Operation
Power Subsystem
The CN3 power subsystem is comprised of voltage regulators, power switches, and logic circuitry that controls the power subsystem. The main processor and microprocessor continuously monitor and control various aspects of the power subsystem when operating.

Power Nets
The CN3 has a sophisticated power system that includes several regulators that develop separate voltages, which are switched onto separate power nets. (A power net is a separately-controlled power source that is distributed throughout the CN3 for power. A particular function, on-board device, or peripheral will use the appropriate power net, depending on its power requirements and criticality of its service.)

Many of these power nets can be independently powered down to conserve power. This section explains the major power planes, their respective sources, and the controls required to operate this system. Each power net is defined by its name, which shows the relationship of each power plane to its "ROOT SOURCE".

Power Planes or Power Nets inside the CN3

MAIN_PWR
(V_WALL to MAIN_PWR) or (V_BATT to MAIN_PWR) MAIN_PWR is the root power source for all supplies in this system. MAIN_PWR is generated from either an external DC source or the internal battery. Power from an external DC source is brought to the MLB via the docking connector through the docking connector flex. MAIN_PWR powers the 3.3 V regulator, the vibrator, the LCD backlight drive circuit, indirectly the WAN radio and the 3.3V_AUX regulator.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

V_WALL
V_WALL is the raw voltage applied to the dock connector of the CN3. The CN3 is rated to accept 5.0 VDC +- 5% at up to 18 W on this power plane. A Schottky diode protects the unit from inadvertent polarity reversal of the input signal, and prevents the main battery from discharging through the dock connector. V_WALL is applied directly to the battery charger (BQ24120), which can charge at up to 1.18A. The battery charger is controlled by the PIC (PIC18LF4320), which monitors the charge progress, battery temperature, and battery voltage. The BQ24120 determines when a charge cycle is complete.

V_BATT
The battery is a 2 cell (in parallel) LION pack with a useful voltage range of 3.4 VDC to 4.2VDC. It is connected to the MLB through pogo pins directly onto the V_BATT power plane. This power source is steered to the MAIN_PWR plane through a battery protection PFET. The gate on this FET is controlled by a power path controller (LTC4412) that senses when external DC power is present. This ensures that the battery voltage is not applied to the MAIN_PWR plane when external DC power is present.

LED+ an LED(MAIN_PWR to LED+ LED-) This power rail (LED+ is the power rail and LED- is the power return) is generated by the output LT3465 (36Vmax 20mAmax) from the MAIN_PWR plane. It is a current-controlled source that provides power to the cathode and anode sides of the LED string. This regulator's output is controlled by BACKLITE_PWM. The PWM waveform is integrated with an RC filter and the derived DC voltage controls brightness of the LCD backlight. This should be powered down when the display backlight is off.

VIB_OUT
(MAIN_PWR to VIB_OUT) This power rail is generated by the output of the MAX1749 regulator from the MAIN_PWR plane. The vibrator motor needs a constant voltage, which is provided by this part. This should be powered down when not in use.

3.3V
(MAIN_PWR to 3.3V) 3.3V is the "always on power plane" that provides the source of power for the core system. This ensures that the memory and processor states remain coherent whenever there is a power failure, or the rest of the system is powered down.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

3.3V is generated by either an LTC3442 (3.3V 1.2A buck regulator sourced from the MAIN_PWR plane) or an LTC3402 (3.1V 1A boost regulator sourced from the SUPERCAP_VOLTAGE plane). The outputs of these 2 regulators are tied together, creating the 3.3V "always on power plane". With the LTC3402 set at 3.1V, and the LTC3442 set at 3.3V, the LTC3442 provides the power for the 3.3V plane. Whenever sufficient power is not present on MAIN_PWR to operate the LTC3442, an S-80827 voltage detector turns off the LTC3442 and its output drops below 3.1V, the LTC3402 takes over. The LTC3442 enters boost mode as its input decays, and eventually shuts down completely. In both states it will not conduct current from the 3.3V plane, which prevents the MAIN_PWR plane from floating when the system is on backup (supercap) power. This power rail is critical for maintaining core function. Upon battery swap the core of the unit will fall back and run off energy stored in the supercap as long as it can. 3.3V powers the PIC, the CODEC, the LCD, and power supplies for the main processor. It also indirectly powers the keyboard, the USB Hub and the mini-SD slot.

LCD_3.3V
(3.3V to LCD_3.3V) This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V used to power the LCD. This PFET is controlled by the FET inverted control signal LCD_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the display is not needed.

LCD_5V
(3.3V to LCD_3.3V to LCD5V) This is an LCD bias voltage. This power plane is generated by the LTC3204 (5V 40mA) boost regulator from the LCD_3.3V plane. This power plane is controlled indirectly by LCD_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the display is not needed.

LCD_16V
(3.3V to LCD_3.3V to LCD_16V) This is an LCD bias voltage. This power plane is generated by the multioutput LT3463 (16V 20 mA) boost regulator from the LCD_3.3V plane. This power plane is controlled indirectly by LCD_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the display is not needed.

-LDC_12V
(3.3V to LCD_3.3V to -LCD_12V) This is an LCD bias voltage. This power plane is generated by the multioutput LT3463 (-12V 20 mA) boost regulator from the LCD_3.3V plane. This power plane is controlled indirectly by LCD_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the display is not needed.

VCOM
VCOM is 10-kHz, 5V peak-to-peak sinusoidal signal with a DC offset that is adjustable between 0.6 and 2.6 VDC. VCOM is generated by biasing two transistors with a digitally controlled pot, to develop the offset voltage. The DC offset is tuned to minimize the apparent flicker of the display. The DC level is set in manufacturing to minimize visual flicker in the display. If the LCD is replaced, this adjustment must be made to match the MLB drive circuit with the specific LCD it is used with.

Sequencing of LCD supply voltages:


The LCD has sequencing requirements for applying the various power rails (DIS_16V, -DIS_12V, DIS_5V, LCD_3.3V). LCD_3.3V is applied first and removed last. The other power rails must be applied after LCD_3.3V and removed before LCD_3.3V. To accomplish this, the signal LCD_BIAS_ON is controlled by software to insure the proper timing is met.

3.3V_CODEC
(3.3V to 3.3V_CODEC) This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V. This PFET is controlled by the FET inverted control signal AUDIO_CODEC_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the Audio CODEC is not needed.

PIC_VDD
(3.3V to PIC_VDD) This is a filtered version of 3.3V. The PIC contains analog-to-digital converter that reads various voltages.

3.3V_CPU
(3.3V to 3.3V_CPU) This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V. This PFET is controlled by SYS_EN. This plane is off in DEEP SLEEP mode. Three FETs form a slow turn-on circuit to reduce inrush from charging the bulk capacitance on the 3.3V plane. From the off state, SYS_EN turns on the controlling FET, the pass FET with a 51.1 ohm resistor is switched on and the 3.3V_CPU power plane starts charging up. Meanwhile the resistor capacitor combination of the other pass FET, allows the second FET to turn on a little later to fully power the 3.3V_CPU plane. Essentially there is a time delay between the first pass FET, with the series resistor, which soft starts the 3.3V_CPU plane and then a short time later the second pass FET shorts out the combination of the first pass FET and series resistor. 3.3V_CPU powers the main processor, the keyboard, the USB Hub, and the mini-SD card.

This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V_CPU. This PFET is controlled by the FET inverted control signal USB_HOST_PWR_EN.

SD_3.3V
(3.3V_CPU to SD_3.3V) This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V_CPU which powers the miniSD card slot. Power control is from the signal SD_PWR_EN.

KYBRD_3.3V
(3.3V_CPU to KYBRD_3.3) This is a PFET-controlled version of 3.3V_CPU which powers the keyboard. Power control is from the signal KEYBRD_PWR_EN.

2.5V
(3.3V to 2.5V) This power plane is generated by the multi-output MAX1587 (2.5V 1A) buck regulator from the 3.3V plane. This plane is powered as long as 3.3V is present (the system is powered by the main battery, external DC power, or the backup supercap). The main purpose of this voltage is to charge the supercap.

1.8_ON
(3.3V to 1.8_ON) This power plane is generated by the multi-output MAX1587 (1.8V.8A) buck regulator from the 3.3V plane. This plane is powered as long as 3.3V is present (the system is powered by the main battery, external DC power, or the backup supercap). It powers the main processor.

1.8V
(1.8_ON to 1.8V) This is a PFET-controlled version of 1.8_ON. This PFET is controlled by SYS_EN. This plane is turned off in DEEP SLEEP mode. Two FETs form a slow turn-on circuit to reduce inrush from charging the bulk capacitance on the 1.8V plane. The first pass FET is turned on and conducts 1.8V_ON to 1.8V through a 51.1 ohm resistor to soft start the plane. A short while later the second pass FET turns on and provides a direct path between 1.8V_ON and 1.8V. Essentially there is a time delay between the first pass FET, with the series resistor, which soft starts the 1.8V plane and then a short time later the second pass FET shorts out the combination of the first pass FET and series resistor. It powers the SDRAM and the Disk on Chip (DOC).

adjustable by commands from the PWR I2C bus. This power plane is controlled by PWR_EN. This plane is turned off in SLEEP MODE and DEEP SLEEP MODE. It powers only the processor chip.

VCC_PLL
(3.3V to 2.5V to VCC_PLL) This power plane is generated by the multi-output MAX1587 (1.3V 35mA) LDO regulator cascaded from the 2.5V plane. This power plane is controlled by PWR_EN. This plane is turned off in SLEEP MODE and DEEP SLEEP MODE. It powers only the processor chip.

VCC_SRAM
(3.3V to 2.5V to VCC_SRAM) This power plane is generated by the multi-output MAX1587 (1.1V 35mA) LDO regulator cascaded from the 2.5V plane. This power plane is controlled by PWR_EN. This plane is turned off in SLEEP MODE and DEEP SLEEP MODE. It powers only the processor chip.

3.3V_AUX
(MAIN_PWR to 3.3V_AUX) This power plane is generated by an LTC3442 (3.49V 1.5A) buck regulator from the MAIN_PWR plane. This regulator is controlled by PXA270 GPIO AUX_PWR_EN_1.8, and is gated by BATT_FAULT_DET. This power plane can be independently powered down. 3.3V_AUX is set to 3.49V in order to meet the EA11 scan engine supply tolerance requirements after allowing for the dropout of the scanner power LDOs. This power rail is intended to power terminal options, either internal or external, that are not deemed essential for core operation. Upon removal of the battery pack and external power, all devices on this power rail are immediately left without power and functionality ceases immediately. The 3.3V_AUX powers the EA11 or camera, 802.11b/g and Bluetooth module, and PWR_OUT (external power for snap-on devices).

SCAN_IO_OUT
(3.3V_AUX to SCAN_IO_OUT) This 3.3V power rail is generated from 3.3V_AUX through a TPS79933 LDO. The LDO is enabled by the FET inverted control signal SCAN_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the unit is not actively scanning. It powers the rail for the EA11 or camera.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

This power rail is determined by either the EA11 flex or the camera flex. In the case of the EA11 flex, the SCAN_IO_OUT power (3.3 VDC) is routed back into the MLB to power the level translators for the interface signals to the scanner/camera. For the EA11, there is no need for the translators because the EA11 runs on the same voltage as the input signals on the processor. But for the camera, the camera needs 2.8 VDC. The camera flex has two LDO regulators that take the 3.3 V power supplied from the MLB and drop it down to the 2.8 V needed for the camera. This 2.8 V is fed back to the MLB from the flex to power the camera side of the level translators. The other side of the level translators on the MLB is powered by 3.3V_CPU which also powers the input section of the processor that interfaces to these signals. When SCAN_IO_VDD decays away the level translator outputs automatically go to a tri-state condition.

SCAN_SENSOR_VDD
(3.3V_AUX to SCAN_SENSOR_VDD) This 3.3V power rail is generated from 3.3V_AUX through a TPS79933 LDO. The LDO is enabled by the FET inverted control signal SCAN_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the unit is not actively scanning. This is the power net for the EA11 imager or camera.

BT_VCC
(3.3V_AUX to BT_VCC) Power rail for Blue Tooth radio module This is a PFET controlled version of 3.3V_AUX. This PFET is controlled by the FET inverted control signal BT_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the Bluetooth radio is not needed.

WLAN_3.3V
(3.3V_AUX to WLAN_3.3V) Power rail for the 802.11b/g radio module. This is a PFET controlled version of 3.3V_AUX. This PFET is controlled by the FET inverted control signal WLAN_PWR_EN. This plane should be powered down whenever the 802.11b/g radio is not needed.

PWR_OUT
(MAIN_PWR to 3.3V_AUX to PWR_OUT) This is a current limited switched version of 3.3V_AUX. This switch is controlled by PWR_OUT_EN. This power plane can be independently powered down. Power is limited to 3.3 V @ 0.5 A max. External loads will need to work within this limitation; large external capacitive loads will be limited and require time to charge the cap with 0.5 A max.

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

The power path for WAN_PWR is a little complex. This power is for the WAN radio and can come from either V_WALL or V_BATT depending upon which is the higher voltage. When the unit is operating off external power (V_WALL) the TPS78601 LDO regulator drops the input 5 V down to 4.3 V, which is the maximum the WAN radios are rated for. This power is then routed through the LTC4413 power path switch to WAN_PWR. If external power is removed, the input voltage quickly decays and the LTC4413 detects that V_BATT is the new higher voltage and will route power from the battery to WAN_PWR. If a situation arises where both the input voltages to the LTC4413 are equal, they will share the WAN_PWR load equally. The reason for the power routing switch was to insure that when on external power the WAN radio could be continuously operated and when removed from external power the battery would then take over. When on external power the battery is disconnected from the power circuits so it can be properly charged without regard of the WAN radio power requirements.

V_BATT
The battery power rail is called V_BATT and is isolated from the power supply circuits by a PFET. Control of the PFET is via the output of LTC4412 which is a power path controller. This part will quickly turn on the pass PFET when it detects the voltage going to the power system is lower than the battery voltage. If the voltage going to the power system is higher (in the case where we are on external voltage) this part will quickly turn off the pass PFET, protecting the battery from back driving and possibly over charging the battery. It is a way to automatically remove the battery from the system and let it be charged when on external power and also a way for the battery to pick up the system load when external power is released.

Power Net Control


The power nets allow portions of the unit to be powered ON or OFF under software control as needed. They include: LCD Blue Tooth Radio Mini-SD card slot PWR_OUT_3.3V CODEC (both analog and digital portions) Internal scanner option Processor core power WAN power WLAN power LCD backlight

Load Dump
When the unit loses power due to loss of the main power source (battery and or external power), the power supplies that support the NON- Core functions lose their power source and thus will power down. The supercap and backup supply (3.3V power net) is immediately switched in to power the CORE functionality (processor, memory, Mini-SD card, RTC and main clocks). All other non-essential circuitry is left un-powered. Once power is restored (good battery reinserted or external power applied), the processor will wake up and re-establish desired operation and restore power to needed subsystems (this assumes the supercap had enough energy to bridge the time the battery was removed or the unit is placed on external power).

Radio Option Board Power


Several power nets are provided to the Radio Option board: 1.8V 3.3V_CPU V_BATT The V_BATT is used to drive the WAN radio option board @ 2 A.

Battery Charger
The battery charger uses external power (V_WALL) to charge the battery. The battery charge IC (BQ24120) works in conjunction with the PIC microprocessor to do the following: If the battery is over discharged (pack internal protection circuitry has disconnected the cells from the outside) the charger will slowly apply a low current of < 0.25 A to gradually bring the pack cell voltage back up to a sufficient level before FAST charging can begin. This insures the pack is charged in a way that extends cell life. Charge the battery at a constant current of 1.2 A (fast charge mode) until the battery terminal voltage reaches 4.2 VDC. Provides charge state status signals so the microprocessor can monitor charging activity The BQ24120 is a switch-mode device to manage power efficiently and minimize generated heat. The battery charge IC is controlled and monitored by the PIC processor. The PIC monitors the following concerning battery charging: Charge the battery with a constant voltage until charge current is reduced to less than 100 mA or a time-out of approximately 6 hours. Read the internal battery temperature sensor and only enable charging when the temperature is within the range of 0 to 50 C.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

107

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

When external power is available (V_WALL), the BQ24120 regulates the battery charging voltage within the range of 4.5 to 5.5 VDC. If battery voltage drops due to internal discharge over a long period, the battery charging will automatically start again. If the battery does not charge completely within 6 hours, the charge is terminated for safety reasons. This is a fault condition and something is wrong. Controls Battery status LED - 3 colors and or blink

Temperature vs. Heat and Battery Life


Charging and the keyboard backlight heat the battery pack. Normal charging of a fully discharged battery can be achieved at 40 C or slightly above, but it will take as long as 20 hours depending upon what other heat sources inside the unit are active. The cooler the unit, and the less internal devices in operation during a charge cycle, the quicker the battery pack charges. Optimal battery life is achieved if the batteries are kept at 25 C while charging.

Supercap Charger
The supercap is charged by an LDO regulator and series current limiting resistors from the 2.5V power plane. The maximum current pulled from the 2.5V plane (for charging the supercap) is 150 mA with a supercap voltage of 0 VDC. As the voltage on the cap increases the current will decrease. In situations where the supercap is called upon to power the system, this charge circuit is disabled to reduce the power load on the supercap. A second method is implemented for disabling the charge circuit for the supercap. The -BATT_CHRG_EN signal from the PIC gives test engineering a way to issue a command externally that will disable the supercap charge circuit for manufacturing test. The supercap is 99% fully charged after 5 minutes or less of powered operation. It will take microamps of charge for up to 10 minutes. Several hundred mA can be drawn from the supercap for a short time, but it will quickly deplete the stored energy. The intended use is to support the system in SLEEP mode only. However, the supercap is capable of supporting the system core, for a second or two, until the system can gracefully store states and halt.

Battery Fault Detect


In the event that the battery runs down or is removed from the unit causing the MAIN_PWR net voltage to drop below 2.7 VDC, the system detects this and performs the following: The supercap charging circuit is disabled to prevent a circular charging path.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

The PIC is notified of battery power loss The main processor is interrupted with -BATT_FAULT_DET to notify software. This is usually one of the system notifications that the main battery has been removed from the product, but it can also occur if the main battery is left to discharge or if it is completely discharged.

System Functions
Battery Monitoring
During operation, the main processor periodically reads the battery voltage (V_BATT) from the gas gauge chip in the battery pack and then estimates the percent of charge left in the battery pack. The main processor accesses the gas gauge through the PIC interface. The PIC accesses the gas gauge IC inside the battery through the I2C bus. If the pack has less than 10 percent charge remaining, the Battery Status LED will blink RED. Note: The Battery Low and Battery Very Low signals are software programmable. The present thresholds are 30 percent and 10 percent respectively, but may be changed. The main processor can also read the battery voltage through an analog-todigital port the CODEC. This method is not as accurate (10 bits vs. 12 for the gas gauge). Once the battery voltage has reached the critical suspend threshold, the processor forces the unit to SUSPEND and keeps it there. The system also monitors the supercap voltage to meet the OS requirement to report low backup battery. The OS may report a low backup battery on a cold power up or after a long battery swap. The supercap charges up enough for the low power mode to recover within a few seconds and the alert stops. The supercap voltage is read through an input on the CODEC.

Headset Jack
The unit remote headset jack capability that allows the headphone microphone and speaker to connect to the CODEC via the docking connector. The CODEC directly drives the headphone speaker. When the headset is in use, the headset mic is connected to the CODEC instead of the internal mic. The CN3 is capable of supporting an external ear piece and external microphone. These signals are brought out to the docking connector. There is no headset jack on the unit. The vehicle dock only uses the audio out line (headset ear piece) and passes this audio line to a jack on the vehicle dock.

Internal Speakers and Mic


There are two internal speakers and one internal microphone.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

The cell speaker is located at the top front of the unit and the microphone is located at the bottom front. These two devices function as a cell phone interface when the unit is held close to the face. The speaker in the back of the unit is referred to as the loudspeaker as it is intended for use when loud sounds are needed. Both audio and tones can be routed to this speaker. This speaker is mounted in the rear case and connects to the MLB via cable.

Radio Audio
Either the internal microphone and speaker(s) or external headset can be used with the WAN radios or 802.11b/g radio for voice communications. Audio paths through the CODEC are used for these varied purposes.

Bluetooth Digital Audio Interface


In situations where a Bluetooth headset is used, the internal Bluetooth module on the MLB will communicate over the PCM audio interface to the CODEC. This allows the wireless interface of an audio headset to the CODEC and then ultimately to the WAN radio or 802.11b/g radio to be utilized. The PCM audio interface is a serial, digital, bi-direction bus that routes digitized audio into a special port on the CODEC.

Audio Power Supplies


The audio CODEC has two power supplies: 3.3V_CODEC powers the digital portion of the CODEC 3.3V_CODEC is filtered and again used for the analog portion of the CODEC Both portions of the CODEC must be powered at the same time or the CODEC may power up incorrectly with erratic operation. The touchpanel controller also is internal to the CODEC part, so to have the touch panel operating, both power rails need to be ON.

Microchip PIC Microcontroller (PIC)


The PIC has a slave I2C communication port that is used to talk with the main processor to accept commands and report results back to the main processor. This link communicates at 100 KHz.

Battery Charging
The battery charging is controlled by the PIC and the battery charger IC. The microprocessor monitors V_WALL_DET to determine when sufficient power is present to charge the unit. External Power (V_WALL) must be over 4.5 VDC for the unit to charge. If V_WALL exceeds 4.5 VDC, the PIC then reads the battery temperature. A thermistor in the battery pack is used in conjunction with a pull up resistor; this signal called BATT_TEMP is read by an analog-to-digital converter in the uP. The battery must be in the temperature range of 0 to 50 C to allow charging. If the battery is too hot or two cold, charging is inhibited.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

If the input power and temperature are good, the PIC will assert the BATT_CHRG_EN signal, which enables the BQ24120 regulator to charge the battery. This charge IC will control the charging of the main battery and supply two charging status signals (-BATT_STAT1 and BATT_STAT2) to the PIC. Table below defines states for these two signals. Charge State Signals
Charge State Charge in process Charge complete Charge Suspended (*) STAT1 ON OFF OFF STAT2 OFF ON OFF

(*) The charge may be suspended due to a timer fault, overvoltage, out of charging temp range, unit in sleep mode, or battery absent. Once the battery completes charge, the PIC will periodically turn the charger back on and check to see if the battery is fully charged. If not, it will let the battery charge back up. The PIC also times a charge and if it does not complete it within several hours, it aborts the charge because something is wrong. While external charge power is available, the PIC drives the battery status LED to indicate current charge state of the battery. If needed the PIC can read the battery voltage to determine if the product should attempt waking the main processor or notify it that the battery is too low to continue operation.

Cold and Warm Reset


The PIC also has the responsibility to provide the system with a COLD RESET and a WARM RESET. In the CN3, these are the same.

COLD RESET
The PIC has an internal circuit that resets the PIC upon initial cold power up or if the PIC supply voltage browns out or dips below 2.0 VDC. Once the PIC goes through a reset and initialization, it in turn forces the main processor to COLD reset and initialize the rest of the unit by asserting RESET. This is a COLD RESET button in the battery compartment that forces the PIC to reset and in turn the main processor is reset. The reset button is to the right of the JTAG slot.

Cold Reset button under battery

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

The Disk on Chip FLASH circuits must complete reset before the main processor completes reset.

WARM RESET
If the 1/0 (Suspend/Resume) key is depressed for approximately 10 seconds, the keyboard uP then asserts the -VDD_FAULT on the main processor followed by a HOST_IRQ to cause a warm reset.

Status LED Control


There are three LED windows at the top of the CN3.

Status LEDs are above the LCD

The center LED provides two functions, depending on what button is pressed.

Battery Status LED


The battery status indicator is comprised of a RED and GREEN LED in the same package under control of the PIC. Either one or both LEDs can be lighted at the same time. The following describes the use of each LED. Battery Status LED Signals
LED Green Red Conditions Battery is over 95% charged when the LED lights green. 1 When the unit is normally operating without external power, the Keyboard processor can blink RED to indicate the main battery is LOW. 2 When the battery is charging, this LED is RED until the battery is 95% charged. Yellow (Green and Red) The following conditions can cause this: 1 Battery temperature is out of range: the battery pack is either too hot or too cold to properly charge. Once the pack temperature returns to the proper range, charging will automatically start. 2 Battery pack is not in the unit. Red/Yellow Blink This is an indication that the battery will not properly charge. Battery is bad. The PIC generates the slow 0.5 or 1 second blink rate for the status LEDs. The signal BLINK_LED is generated and routed to the port expander that drives the LEDS and can be controlled by this BLINK signal.

Notification LED
This yellow status indicator is under software control and as such may have different definitions depending on OS implemented. See software spec for use of these LEDS.

Scan/Ready to Work LED


This BLUE status indicator is under software control and as such may have different definitions depending on OS implemented. See software spec for use of these LEDS. This GREEN status indicator is under software control and usually indicates that the bar code that has just been scanned was successfully decoded as a valid code.

One-Wire Communications
The PIC uses two ports to implement a one-wire interface. The main control of how this interface is used is under the main processor control. This interface is used to communicate with EEPROM devices that have the one- wire interface. These EEPROM parts are located in the battery pack and in the dock or snap-on devices for use in identifying what is connected to the unit. A signal, -DOCK_DET, runs into the PIC to determine when the unit has been placed into a dock or if a snap-on device has been connected to the terminal. Once a device has been detected, the ID_BUS (one-wire bus) can be used to interrogate what has been attached. If a device is removed, the PIC can detect this as well and notify the system of the change in configuration. The exception to this is when the attached device is a USB peripheral, like a Mag stripe reader. The USB bus is used to identity what is connected. The one-wire bus will not be used.

USB Host Detect


The system is able to detect when a USB host devices, such as a PC, are connected for purposes of active sync communication. The 5 V provided in the USB cable from the HOST is detected as an interrupt and will allow the PIC to wake the system up and begin communications.

ON/OFF Detection
The 1/0 or ON/OFF key of the keyboard is routed into the PIC for debouncing and either waking the system up or putting it into sleep. Upon power up, the PIC should read the battery voltage and determine if there is sufficient power to wake up. If sufficient battery power is available, the PIC will issue the HOST_IRQ to wake up the main processor.

118

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

Sleep Mode Detect


The PIC also monitors the system signal PWR_EN which comes out of the main processor and controls power to the processor core. In Sleep mode this power is turned off. By monitoring this signal, the PIC knows the status of the system and can respond accordingly.

VCOM Adjust
The three signals used to set the VCOM signal level for minimizing flicker in the LCD are controlled by the PIC. The -POT_SEL output is an open collector that allows this input to be pulled up to protect the pot from changing setting under power transients. This digital pot control is only used at the initial time of manufacture or at a service center when a different LCD is married to the MLB. Each LCD has a slightly different VCOM setting and must be properly calibrated to minimize LCD flicker. The other two signals: -POT_INC and POT_UP_DN are used to step the digital pot or determine the direction the digital pot will change (either increase resistance or decrease resistance) respectively. The PIC can be manipulated via external commands to make the VCOM adjustment.

Headset Connect Detect


The PIC has the input -HEADSET_DET that is used to determine when an external headset is plugged into the unit. This notifies the software controlling the CODEC to route the audio signal accordingly and potentially mute other audio paths based on user preferences.

PIC EEPROM Configuration Information


The PIC has a block of EEPROM that is used to store various bits of configuration information. This information is determined at the time of manufacture and must accurately match the hardware options and configurations so the system software knows what functionality this specific terminal has. This EEPROM is non-volatile so this vital information is never lost. Note: It is very important that if a unit is updated in service, or repaired (if the MLB is replaced, this EEPROM must be updated) the EEPROM must be correctly loaded or the unit will not function properly.

PIC Programming
The PIC is pre-programmed before it is mounted onto the MLB. In the event that the internal code needs updating, a utility can be run from the main processor that can download new code to the PIC via the I2C port and it can then re-load its internal FLASH with new code. Note: In the event that this process fails or may have been aborted in mid update, a dedicated interface is available to re-program the uP. This can be accomplished without disassembly of the unit. A special programming device is attached to the MLB via a special JTAG adapter that connects to the surface contacts on the MLB inside the mini SD card

slot (under the battery and through the access door). Normally these contacts are covered with an insulating Mylar film after production tests are performed. When the PIC needs to be recovered with the external device, this Mylar film must be removed, cleaned of adhesive, and then connected as described above. Note: Once the PIC is reprogrammed, the Mylar film insulator must be replaced to protect against ESD jumping into these contacts and damaging one of the processors.

Main Processor (Intel PXA-270 X-Scale)


The CN3 has an Intel PXA-270 X-scale RISC processor that runs either Windows CE or Windows Mobile OS. Power management and support of options are the primary engineering goals of this unit, while maintaining open system standards. This unit accommodates different internal radios including: GPRS, CDMA, GPS, 802.11b/g, and Bluetooth. Several clocking options are allowed to maximize performance.

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

Main Processor ON/OFF


When the PIC determines that it should wake the unit up, it asserts the HOST_IRQ signal on the main processor. The main processor turns on its core power by asserting PWR_EN. After power supplies have settled and internal clocks started up, -RESET_OUT is unasserted to the system and the main processor is ready to start operation. When the user requests to turn the unit OFF or place it into SUSPEND by depressing the 1/0 key, the PIC sends a key code to the main processor over the I2C bus. The main processor decodes this key code and then proceeds to go into the SUSPEND state.

Real-Time Clock (RTC)


The main processor has an internal real-time clock, but it does not retain time through a COLD RESET. To work around this limitation, an external clock IC was implemented to allow the time settings to bridge COLD RESETS. The main processor communicates with the clock chip via two-wire I2C bus and can set the time in both the internal and external RTC via a software utility. The external RTC chip provides an accurate 32kHz clock for the main processor's internal RTC use.

SDRAM Controller
The main processor contains the SDRAM controller. The SDRAM controller is active only when the processor is active. In SLEEP mode the controller places the SDRAM into self-refresh mode and stops operation. Note that the processor must apply the SDRAM row and column address lines on the Address bus plus use this bus for normal operation. SDRAM Controller Signals

The main processor has multiple functions for the GPIOs. When the special functions are not utilized, these pins have a variety of general purpose uses to control or monitor the hardware.

Only a small subset of these direct keys are used by the processor for monitoring the two sets of side keys on the unit. Any of the keys on row 0 are special in that they can be enabled to wake the processor from SLEEP mode. All other keys cannot wake the unit up from SLEEP. Refer to the software specification for definition of the keys and their shifted planes.

The main processor can communicate and configure the image capture devices over this bus.

Processor Power Control I2C Bus


This I2C bus is a two wire, bi-directional, serial bus that communicates roughly at 100 kbps between the following devices: Main Processor Processor power controller The main processor is the master. This bus is used to change the core processor voltage to match the clock speed of the processor. When the processor is operating at low clock speeds, the core voltage can be reduced to lower power consumption. When performance is required, the core voltage is increased and then the processor clock is increased to meet the current work load.

Client Universal Serial Bus (USB)


The main processor supports a USB V1.1 client interface. This interface is routed out the docking connector for external connection to a PC for active sync communications. The PIC detects when the external host 5V is applied and informs the processor this interface is active. This signal pair is differential. Both 1.5 and 12 Mbps operation is supported.

Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) Interface


The main processor has a JTAG interface to facilitate testing and can be used to load the BOOTLOADER into FLASH with a special program. These signals can be accessed on the board from a special set of surface contacts by using a special fixture that plugs into the mini - SD slot area. This is a method that the service center can reprogram the unit's BOOTLOADER into DOC FLASH in the event that it becomes corrupted. Normally the FLASH can be upgraded using the boot-loader software.

Main Bus Devices


The main bus devices are all external to the main processor chip, but all share the same data and address bus lines. Some devices use different subsets of the address and data lines to accomplish their functionality and each device may use the bus for longer or shorter amounts of time depending upon their speed. Devices on the main bus are: DOC Flash SDRAM Bus Buffers for 802.11b/g radio module The main processor address and data bus are 1.8 V levels. The bus buffers are needed for the 802.11b/g radio module because its bus signals are 3.3V and the unit has the ability to power the radio module off and continue to utilize the 1.8 V system bus.

Disk on Chip (DOC) FLASH


The unit has 128 Mbytes of DOC FLASH that holds the boot-loader and the operating system. This storage is non-volatile and can be reprogrammed many times. The FLASH is pre-programmed before installation on the raw boards in manufacturing. The contents can be updated via a software utility from a variety of sources including: SD card, active sync and JTAG interface. When this update process it underway, it is very important to let the process complete and to insure power is not interrupted or FLASH corruption could occur. Once corrupted, the only way to recover the contents of FLASH is to return to a service center and utilize the JTAG interface to reprogram. Software must make proper use of the This document contains proprietary information and shall not be distributed outside of Intermec or its designated third-party service centers.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM)


The SDRAM is the main memory that the CPU uses for running applications. Power to this memory is provided continuously to prevent loss of program or data. The SDRAM requires three clock cycles (initial latency) to respond. CL=3 @ 104 MHz. There are currently two possible SDRAMS in use; either a dual die or a single die part. Software should be compatible with both flavors.

System Set Points


The power system has several voltage levels to control various sub-systems; the chart below lists the MAIN_BATT voltage levels and thresholds. The low battery detect is monitored by the software on the main processor and a battery threshold is set to determine when to critically suspend a unit. This threshold may vary depending on battery pack temperature or the desired power management settings selected by the user. The CN3 has two main power sources. All other voltages are developed from these sources. These sources are External Power (V_WALL) and Main Battery (V_BATT). The following chart illustrates these power sources, their voltage ranges.

V_WALL (external power)


Wall power or power from a dock: 5 VDC +_ 10%

V_BATT (battery charging)


The battery charge chip will limit charge if battery voltage is below 2.5 V to slowly bring up an over discharged battery to a safe voltage before fast charge is attempted. If the battery can not be brought up within one hour charge is aborted due to bad battery. Fully charged battery voltage is 4.2 VDC.

Battery Thresholds
The battery has four internal thresholds:

Battery Internal Disconnect:


The protection circuitry inside the battery decides that the cell voltage has reached a point at which further discharge will damage the cell and the internal FETs turn off to prevent further discharge of the battery. The battery can no longer provide power.

Battery Internal Reconnect:


Once the battery internally disconnects, charge voltage must be applied to the pack to recover or to turn the internal protection FETs back on. This is the voltage required before the internal protection circuitry of the battery allows power to come in or go out of the battery.

Battery Charged
The fully-charged battery voltage is 4.2 VDC +/-42 mV.

CN3 Mobile Computer Service Manual

3.3V LTC3442

Chapter 5 Theory of Operation

Battery Overcharge Disconnect:


If the battery is overcharged its cell voltage will continue to increase above 4.2 VDC. The internal protection circuit monitors the cell voltage and if it gets too high, it will turn off the internal FETs to prevent further over charging (a potentially dangerous situation). The battery has a maximum charged voltage (CHARGED BATTERY VOLTAGE). This voltage must not be exceeded or the life of the cell will be reduced.

Battery Fault Detect


Once MAIN_PWR drops to 2.7 VDC, a signal is issued to the main processor (BATT_FAULT_DET) to tell the main processor to go to suspend. This usually happens when the main battery is removed from the unit but can also happen if the unit is left for a long period of time and the main battery discharges. The PIC also holds the signal to the main processor to avoid the unit from trying to power up if voltage detect circuit would some how see a false threshold trip.

WAN Voltage Limits


The WAN radios have a limited operating voltage window. IF the voltage is too high, the radio maybe damaged and if it is too low, the radio will stop operating.

Model CN3 Connectors


Internal Connectors
The Model CN3 contains numerous internal connectors. These connections allow for maximum flexibility in the configuration of the system. The external connectors provide docking access as well as some tethered options. Depending upon the radio configuration, the correct WAN antenna is inserted inside the bottom assembly.

Docking Connector
The CN3 has a single16-pin docking connector for all external interfaces. All signals that enter or exit the unit are ESD and EMI protected to prevent damage to the terminal and to meet agency requirements. The docking connector provides the following external interfaces: External power for terminal operation and battery charging Client USB and USB 5 V detect ID_BUS for 1 wire communication to the dock -DOCK_DET (signal is grounded when either dock or snap on adapter is connected) USB Host

Docking Signal Characteristics


Signal Name +5V_IN ID_BUS Description This signal is used to power the terminals while connected to the dock. This signal will be 5V +/- 5%. A maximum of 15 watts per unit is required. This signal is used to communicate with an internal 1k-bit 1-Wire EEPROM (Maxim Integrated Products part number DS2431P). The EEPROM identifies and stores relevant information about the Dock. The power to read from and write to the EEPROM is derived entirely from the 1-Wire communication line. Data is transferred serially via the 1-Wire protocol, which requires only a single data lead (ID_BUS) and a ground return (GND).

USBC_D-, USBC_D+ These signals are a differential pair used for communication to the CN3 from a USB host. This is a USB full speed connection. (12Mbits) USBC_5V_DET This signal is passed from the host to the CN3 to indicate that a USB host is connected and active.

USBH_D-, USBH_D+ These signals are a differential pair used for communication from the CN3 USB host to an external USB peripheral device. This is a USB full speed connection.
