My radio chip connects via the same pin layout as the telemetry port on the 80pin I/O connector through the UART protocol. Currently the port is getting voltage but my radio chip isn't powering on. I've also verified that the radio chip is functional. Does a custom firmware need to be flashed to the onboard FPGA to enable ports on the 80pin I/O connector? Does the aero compute github page provide such firmware?
I recently checked that the connector pins are used but the radio module is still not powering on. Regarding the github page you've linked, is the spi_xfer command all which is needed to enable the uart port when running on the default (aero-compute-board.jam) firmware?
