SMA connectors on Eval Board

Sorry if this has been asked but could not find it anywhere. On the SoM Eval Board there are two unpopulated area for SMA connectors. If I wish to use those and soldered them on the board, am I good to go at that point? Or will they need to connect back to the u.fl connectors on the module?


They’re only the mechanical fastening for a SMA jack to be soldered to the board so there’s a solid mount for a SMA antenna. The intention is that you’d get a SMA jack with a U.FL pigtail to connect to the Tracker SoM module antenna connectors that you want to extend.

@rickkas7 Thanks that is exactly what I needed to confirm. Looking at the block diagram it almost looks like they connect back to the SoM. Thanks for confirming that.
