testConnection

Test connection between host and radio hardware

Description

example

testConnection(dev) tests the connection to the radio hardware specified by dev. The function checks the hardware-software compatibility, the data paths between host and radio hardware, and the RF loopback.

Before calling the function, make sure the SD card configured during hardware setup is inserted into the reader of the radio hardware. You can also configure an SD card by using the downloadImage function.

For the RF loopback test, connect a cable or antenna to the transmit-and-receive connectors.
