Testing UICC interface as GPIO

The Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC) interface can be tested by controlling the UICC pins with the %XGPIOTEST AT command and checking the pin states.

Each pin in the UICC interface can be set to the output mode and to the logic low state (0 V) or to the logic high state (1.8 V). The pins are SIM_RST (pin 43), SIM_DET (pin 45), SIM_CLK (pin 46), SIM_IO (pin 48), and SIM_1V8 (pin 49). The pin voltage can then be measured with external test equipment. Alternatively, the pins can be set to the input state and the pin status can be read. The result of the test can be compared to an externally set level. Some of the UICC pins are unidirectional, supporting testing only in a predefined mode.

Note: The %XGPIOTEST AT command is supported by modem firmware pti_v1.1.1 and later.
