h2. Connectors
14 1 laforge
15 1 laforge
16 31 tsaitgaist
* USB: USB mini-B connector. The main connector. The host software communicates (sniffing,...) through USB with the board. It can also be used to flash the micro-controller (using DFU).
17 31 tsaitgaist
* serial: 2.5 mm jack serial cable, as used by osmocomBB. port used to debug the device (printf goes there).
18 31 tsaitgaist
* debug (P2): same as serial, but using the FTDI serial cable. *It is recommended to cut the voltage wire of the 6pin FTDI connector before plugging the cable into the simtrace.*
19 31 tsaitgaist
* jtag (P1): JTAG 20 pin connector to do hardware assisted debugging.
20 31 tsaitgaist
* BT1: battery connector (4.5-6V DC). normally the USB provides power, but the battery port can be used for autonomous use of SIMtrace. The sniffed data can be saved in the flash (U1).
21 31 tsaitgaist
* FFC_SIM (P3): to connect the flat flexible cable with SIM end for the phone.
22 31 tsaitgaist
* SIM (P4): put your SIM in there (instead of in the phone)
23 31 tsaitgaist
* reset (SW1): to reset the board (not erasing the firmware). If your are too lazy to unplug and re-plug the USB.
24 31 tsaitgaist
* bootloader (SW2): used to start the bootloader to flash the device using DFU. press when plugging in the USB.
25 31 tsaitgaist
* test (JP1): short circuit using a jumper to flash using [[SIMtraceFirmware#EnteringtheSAM-BAmode|SAM-BA]].
26 31 tsaitgaist
* erase (JP2): short circuit using a jumper to completely erase the firmware.

The schematics, Gerber files, etc. can be found in the 'hardware' subdirectory of the simtrace.git repository:

We're using Kicad as EDA tool.  Most of the work on the schematics and Gerber files has been done by Kevin Redon,
37 15 zecke2
based on the original design by Harald Welte.

The hardware schematics are very, very simple:
46 1 laforge
47 31 tsaitgaist
* Connect SIM-RST with PA7
48 31 tsaitgaist
* Connect SIM-I/O with PA6(TXD0) and PA1(TIOB0)
49 31 tsaitgaist
* Connect SIM-CLK with PA2(SCK0) and PA4(TCLK0)
50 31 tsaitgaist
* Connect SIM-GND with GND

h2. Mode of operation
54 31 tsaitgaist
55 31 tsaitgaist
56 25 zecke2
The USART of the AT91SAM7S is capable of T=0. The documentation only mentions it in clock-master mode, like you
57 25 zecke2
would run it in a smart card reader to actively talk to a smart card. However, by using the USART input clock multiplexer,
58 25 zecke2
you can use an externally-generated CLK like the one from the SIM card socket of the phone.
59 25 zecke2
60 25 zecke2
Unfortunately, the Rx Timeout feature of the USART is not working in T=0 mode, so I had to re-implement Rx timeout (waiting time)
61 25 zecke2
handling by means of the TC (timer/counter) block 0.  Due to technical limitations, we will wait up to one byte (12 etu) more
62 1 laforge
than we should.

64 31 tsaitgaist
h2. Modi
65 31 tsaitgaist
66 31 tsaitgaist
67 1 laforge
SIMtrace has the possibility to work as:
68 31 tsaitgaist
* sniffer
69 31 tsaitgaist
* card reader
70 31 tsaitgaist
* card emulator
71 31 tsaitgaist
* man-in-the-middle
72 1 laforge
73 1 laforge
The SAM7S offers 2 T=0 capable USART ports.
74 1 laforge
One is connected to the phone (PA21-PA27), the other to the SIM (PA1-PA7).
75 31 tsaitgaist
The lines goes from the phone to the SIM through a bus switch (IC4="CB3Q3244":http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/sn74cb3q3244.pdf).
76 1 laforge
The bus switch offer 2 buses of 4 lines:
77 31 tsaitgaist
* The first is used to forward RST, CLK, and VPP (between the SIM and the phone). It is controlled by SC_SW (PA20)
78 31 tsaitgaist
* The second is used to forward I/O (between the SIM and the phone). It is controlled by SC_I/O (PA19)
79 1 laforge
80 1 laforge
The various modi require to interrupt different lines:
81 1 laforge
82 35 laforge
|_.SW_SC (PA20) |_.SC_I/O (PA19) |_.description |_.modus |
83 35 laforge
| L | L | phone and SIM directly connected | sniffer (use any USART port) |
84 35 laforge
| L | H | only I/O interrupted | MitM (use both USART port) |
85 35 laforge
| H | H | phone and SIM not connected | card read, emulator (use each USART port) |
86 1 laforge
87 35 laforge
As of now, still only the sniffer is implemented in the firmware
88 1 laforge
89 1 laforge
SIM cards support various classes (voltage levels): class A = 5.0V, class B = 3.0V, class C = 1.8V.
90 1 laforge
SIMtrace v1.x only supports class B (3.0V), which all actual SIM cards and phone also support.
91 1 laforge
To ensure class B is used, SIMtrace forces 3.3V (within the 3.0V±10% spec) by holding the VCC line at this voltage.
92 1 laforge
SIMtrace v2 will support all 3 classes.

h2. Revisions
95 1 laforge
96 1 laforge
h3. v2.0
97 31 tsaitgaist
98 34 laforge
This was formerly ongoing (but now long stalled) work.
99 30 tsaitgaist
The changes compared to v1.x are:
100 31 tsaitgaist
* ID-1 and ID-000 smart card slots (with presence detection): so to be able to also sniff credit card sized smart cards
101 31 tsaitgaist
* through hole USB Mini-B and Serial/Jack 2.5 connector: to be more robust
102 31 tsaitgaist
* properly support all smart card classes (A,B,C): better compatibility
103 1 laforge
* be able to forward voltage from phone to SIM or provide voltage from the board: ideal sniffer and reader
104 31 tsaitgaist
* use an microSD slot instead of built-on flash: easier data transfer
105 1 laforge
* a SWP sniffer (maybe)
106 1 laforge
107 1 laforge
j3. v1.4p-SAM3 (unreleased, available upon request)
108 33 laforge
109 31 tsaitgaist
* switch from AT91SAM7S to AT91SAM3S: it has more USB endpoints
110 34 laforge
** new firmware incomplete
111 1 laforge
112 34 laforge
h3. v1.4 / v1.4p (2014-06)
113 1 laforge
114 33 laforge
Changes:
115 33 laforge
* ensure PA0, PA1 and PA2 are high logic level at power-up (low interferes with SAM-BA operation)
116 1 laforge
** PA0 hard-wired to 3V#
117 33 laforge
** PA1 and PA2 get R25, R26 pull-up
118 33 laforge
* update to AT91SAM128D (previous we used AT91SAM128C which is now EOL)
119 33 laforge
* switch to alternative type of ferrite bead/filter, as old one is EOL
120 33 laforge
121 34 laforge
h3. v1.3 (2013-11)
122 33 laforge
123 32 zecke
{{thumbnail(simtrace_v13_front.jpg)}}
124 30 tsaitgaist
125 1 laforge
Changes:
126 1 laforge
* added a FPF2109 power switch
127 31 tsaitgaist
* added a zener diode on LDO to SIM to provide ~3.0V to SIM (closer to ISO 7812 specified class B)
128 31 tsaitgaist
* it is now possible to choose the power source for the SIM card: provided by the SIMtrace on-board LDO, or forwarded from the phone
129 31 tsaitgaist
* no production customizations required
130 31 tsaitgaist
* silkscreen redone (sadly missing on the produced batch)
131 33 laforge
* change SPI flash to S25FL032P0XMFI011
132 1 laforge
133 31 tsaitgaist
*BUG:* because of this new feature (selecting power source for the SIM), we wanted to be able to identify the v1.3 board.
134 1 laforge
To do that, we tied PA0 to ground. But this needs to be HIGH for the AT91SAM7S to be able to enter it's SAM-BA mode (for flashing the first time).
135 1 laforge
If you produce the board yourself, you have to cut the path between the left upper pin and the capacitor.
136 31 tsaitgaist
The version is now written in flash. To flash the firmware the first time (only), follow the dedicated [[ProductionFlashingV13|instructions]].

adaptation of the v1.1p because of component availability for new batch.
149 1 laforge
150 1 laforge
Changes:
151 31 tsaitgaist
* capacitor is even nearer to the LDO
152 31 tsaitgaist
* one diode slightly changed place
153 31 tsaitgaist
* quartz crystal is smaller (footprint still fits)
154 1 laforge
* SIM slot is another (not available from Amphenol anymore). No presence switch.

This is a slightly corrected version of the v1.0p.
167 23 tsaitgaist
168 23 tsaitgaist
Changes:
169 31 tsaitgaist
* a critical capacitor is near the LDO
170 31 tsaitgaist
* some other capacitors are nearer to the CPU
171 31 tsaitgaist
* some power traces are wider
172 31 tsaitgaist
* the SIM C6/VPP contact is also routed through the bus switch (sometimes used for Single Wire Protocol)
173 1 laforge
* sysmocom is added in the copper for legal reasons
174 31 tsaitgaist
* the FTDI Vcc is cut

This is identical to v1.0 on the schematics side, we simply altered the footprints of some components to accommodate
188 20 tsaitgaist
whatever the SMT factory had in stock.  Specifically the LED are 0805 instead of 0603, and the shottky diodes are
189 7 laforge
in a slightly awkward looking very large package.

Never really was an official release.  However, a friend took the unfinished Gerber files and built 5 units.

Since the Gerber was not finished, we had to do lots and lots of re-work in order to make them work at all.
