Library Management

group nrf_modem

Application interface offered for management of the Modem library.

Enums

enum nrf_modem_mode_t

Modem library mode.

Values:

enumerator NORMAL_MODE

Normal operation mode

enumerator FULL_DFU_MODE

DFU mode

Functions

char *nrf_modem_build_version(void)

Return version string of the Modem library build.

Returns Version

string if defined.

Returns Empty

string if version string is not defined.

int nrf_modem_init(const nrf_modem_init_params_t *init_params, enum nrf_modem_mode_t mode)

Initialize the Modem library.

Once initialized, the library uses the resources defined in nrf_modem_platform.h.

Library has two operation modes, normal and DFU. In normal operation mode, the DFU functionality is disabled.

Library can alternatively be initialized in DFU mode, which means that all shared memory regions are now reserved for DFU operation, and therefore no other modem functionality can be used.

To switch between DFU and normal modes, nrf_modem_shutdown() should be called in between.

Parameters
  • init_params[in] Initialization parameters. Cannot be NULL.

  • mode[in] Library mode.

Returns Zero

on success.

Returns A

positive value from Modem DFU when executing Modem firmware updates.

Returns -1

on error.

int nrf_modem_shutdown(void)

Shutdown the Modem library.

Resources reserved by the library in nrf_modem_platform.h are freed when the library is shutdown.

Note

The modem must be put into offline (CFUN=0) mode before shutting it down.

Returns Zero

on success.

Returns -1

on error.

Performance duty-cycled power mode: Duty-cycled tracking is engaged and run when conditions allow it without significant performance degradation.

Power duty-cycled power mode:: Duty-cycled tracking is engaged and run whenever it is possible with acceptable performance degradation.

The GNSS receiver keeps producing PVT estimates at the configured rate regardless of whether it is tracking continuously or in duty cycles. However, a failure to produce a valid PVT estimate during duty-cycled tracking may cause the GNSS receiver to resume continuous tracking.

Parameters

Functions

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_init(void)

Initialize the GNSS interface.

This function is used to initialize the GNSS interface and must be called before any other function can be used.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if the interface is already initialized.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_deinit(void)

De-initialize the GNSS interface.

This function is used to de-initialize the GNSS interface. GNSS must not be running when this function is called.

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_event_handler_set(nrf_modem_gnss_event_handler_type_t handler)

Sets the GNSS event handler.

This function is used to set the function that handles events from GNSS.

Note

The event handler is executed in interrupt context so a lot of processing inside the handler may have performance implications and side effects. It’s recommended to use the handler only for signaling or re-scheduling processing to a separate thread. Data can be read at any time while GNSS is running, the events are only signaling that the data has been updated.

Parameters
  • handler[in] Pointer to the event handler function or NULL.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_system_mask_set(uint8_t system_mask)

Sets the supported GNSS systems. Systems which have the corresponding bit set are enabled.

Default value: All systems supported by the modem firmware are enabled

Note

GPS can’t be disabled and remains enabled even if the corresponding bit is not set.

Parameters
Returns 0

on success.

Default value: 5 deg

Parameters
  • angle[in] Value between 0 and 90 (degrees above the horizon).

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

Parameters
Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

Returns NRF_EINVAL

if GNSS returned an error.

Returns NRF_EAGAIN

if out of memory.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_fix_interval_set(uint16_t fix_interval)

Sets the GNSS fix interval in seconds.

Single fix navigation mode is engaged by setting the fix interval to 0.

Continuous navigation mode is engaged by setting fix interval to 1.

Periodic navigation mode is engaged by setting the fix interval to value 10…65535. The unit is seconds.

Default value: 1 (continuous navigation)

Note

Fix interval values over 1800 seconds are only supported by modem firmware v1.3.0 or later.

Note

In periodic navigation mode, when GNSS determines it needs to download ephemerides or almanacs from the broadcast, the fix interval and fix retry parameters are temporarily ignored. GNSS will perform scheduled downloads until it has downloaded the data it needs, after which normal operation is resumed.

Parameters
  • fix_interval[in] 0 for single fix, 1 for continuous navigation or fix interval in seconds.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

Returns NRF_EAGAIN

if out of memory.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_fix_retry_set(uint16_t fix_retry)

Sets the GNSS fix retry period in seconds.

Fix retry parameter controls the maximum time the GNSS receiver is allowed to run while trying to produce a valid PVT estimate. If the fix retry time is non-zero, the GNSS receiver is turned off after the fix retry time is up regardless of whether a valid PVT estimate was produced or not. If fix retry parameter is set to zero, the GNSS receiver is allowed to run indefinitely until a valid PVT estimate is produced.

Default value: 60s

Note

For the first fix in periodic navigation mode the GNSS receiver is allowed to run for 60 seconds even if the retry interval is set shorter.

Note

Fix retry has no effect in continuous navigation mode.

Parameters
  • fix_retry[in] Fix retry period in seconds.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

Returns NRF_EINVAL

if GNSS returned an error.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_timing_source_set(uint8_t timing_source)

Sets the used timing source during GNSS sleep.

Using TCXO instead of RTC during GNSS sleep periods might be beneficial when used with 1PPS. When GNSS is not running all the time (periodic navigation or duty cycling is used), 1PPS accuracy can be improved by using TCXO. It may also improve sensitivity for periodic navigation when the fix interval is short.

Default value: NRF_MODEM_GNSS_TIMING_SOURCE_RTC

Note

Use of TCXO significantly raises the idle current consumption.

Note

This feature is only supported by modem firmware v1.3.0 or later.

Note

This is considered a debug feature, and is not supposed to be used in production code.

Parameters
Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is running or not initialized.

Returns NRF_EINVAL

if GNSS returned an error.

Returns NRF_EAGAIN

if out of memory.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_prio_mode_enable(void)

Enables GNSS priority over LTE idle mode procedures.

GNSS can produce a cold start fix when there are long enough gaps in LTE idle mode operations. LTE idle eDRX cycles approximately 1 min and above will usually guarantee the ablity to produce a fix. Shorter DRX cycles will be enough after GNSS has got ephemerides. GNSS priority can be enabled to help getting GNSS into that state, if there are not long enough gaps in LTE idle mode functionality. Priority for GNSS should be used only when fix has been blocked by LTE idle mode operations, which can be detected by NRF_MODEM_GNSS_PVT_FLAG_NOT_ENOUGH_WINDOW_TIME bit being set in the PVT data frame flags member. The application should not make the decision based on a single PVT event, but should enable priority only in case this flag has been set in several consecutive PVT events. Priority will be disabled automatically after producing the first fix.

Note

GNSS priority may interfere with LTE operations, if possible it would be good to time the use of priority to moments where data transfer is not anticipated. In general, long enough eDRX cycles, or PSM, will ensure better functionality for both GNSS and LTE.

Note

Priority will not stop LTE connections.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is not running.

Returns NRF_EINVAL

if GNSS returned an error.

Returns NRF_EAGAIN

if out of memory.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_prio_mode_disable(void)

Disables GNSS priority over LTE idle mode procedures.

Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM

if GNSS is not running.

Returns NRF_EINVAL

if GNSS returned an error.

Returns NRF_EAGAIN

if out of memory.

int32_t nrf_modem_gnss_dyn_mode_change(uint32_t mode)

Changes GNSS dynamics mode.

Dynamics mode can be used to tune GNSS performance for a specific use case. Use of a matching dynamics mode improves the positioning performance. Dynamics mode can be changed without disruption in positioning. The selected dynamics mode is stored into non-volatile memory.

Default value: NRF_MODEM_GNSS_DYNAMICS_GENERAL_PURPOSE

Note

This feature is only supported by modem firmware v1.3.0 or later.

Parameters
Returns 0

on success.

Returns NRF_EPERM
