Focal length: 4.6mm
F number: 3.0
Distortion: less than 1.0%
Interface: 24pin golden finger
Size: 19.7mmX12.5mmX6.4mm(customize available) 

Serial Port (UART)

The UART connector is similar to the FTDI pinout, but it is only a 5-Pin connector, without RTS(Pin6). 
The CTS(Pin2) is unconnected, so RTS/CTS is not available.
Pin3(VUSB) delivers 5V.
It was successfully connected to "uart4" which is /dev/ttymxc3 on Novena by crossing RX(Pin4)/TX(Pin5) and connecting GND (Pin1)


A 3.7V battery with 3 pins should work which can be found in other mobile phones


Fernvale can use a Bluetooth antenna and a GSM antenna. Both are using a u.FL (which is also called IPEX) connector.

SIM Card

 Fernvale has a normal Mini-SIM Card holder, for Micro or Nano SIM-Cards you need an adapter.


For using Fernvale as an Arduino you might want to use normal Pin-Headers: You need 2 4x1 Headers, and 1 8x1 Header


Fernvale needs a CTIA compatible headset. For OMTP headsets you will want to use a CTIA<->OMTP converter.
