Plug the Raspberry Pi expansion card into the top of the 40 pin connector of the Raspberry Pi. Now your expansion card is powered by your Raspberry Pi and connected. Special drivers are not needed because the expansion card uses the standard tty drivers.
To turn on the expansion card, the GPIO20 pin on the Raspberry Pi should be switched high. An easy way to do this is to use the Python shell.

If you connect your AarLogic Raspberry PI Extension Card to a USB cable or swivel, you can also use ttyUSB3 as the connection. This is recommended if you need a faster connection for 4G and 3G modules.
