1. Overview

The PIKA µWARP is a small stand-alone networking appliance used for multiple end user applications such as a Voip Firewall, Virtual Private Network, Session Border Controller, etc.

1.1. Interfaces

The PIKA µWARP provides the following interfaces:

  • Two 10/100BaseT network ports
  • USB 1.1 host
  • Power port (uses one of the two USB connectors)
  • Reset button
  • Status LEDs


2. Regulatory Information

2.1. Compliance

The appliance is certified compliant for use in the United States, Canada, and European Union countries. The following tables list approval information for EMC/EMI, Safety standards. Testing for all regulatory disciplines was performed at Nemko Canada product certification and compliance test facility. The tables list each country or region, its approval standard, registered approval numbers (if any), and a short description of the approval standard. 


The term self-declared indicates that the board was tested by a third-party test facility, but does not require an official approval number by a country or region's approval standard authority.




EMC/EMI standards govern the amount of electromagnetic interference and immunity of electrical devices. The following table lists the EMC/EMI approval information for the appliance.

3. Appliance Description

3.1. Power

Power is applied to the PIKA µWARP via one of the USB jacks. The two USB jacks are identical and it doesn't matter which one is used to connect the USB power supply to.

The power supply that ships with the unit is 1.5A which also accomodates the 500mA maximum current requirement of the second USB port.


Reset Button

In the event that the PIKA µWARP needs to be reset, a small pointed object such as a paper clip can be inserted into the small hole on the side of the unit.


3.2.  Ethernet Ports

The two Ethernet ports support comply with 10/100 Base-T IEEE 802.3 standards.  The Ethernet connections are provided via standard RJ45 jacks.  CAT 5 UTP cable is recommended (CAT 3 UTP can be used for 10Mbps only).

The two Ethernet ports are electrically identical. One is labeled 'A' and the other 'B'. Refer to the specific product user guides for use of these ports.


3.3. USB

The USB host is USB 1.1 compliant. The signalling lines of the port are routed to both USB connectors so either connector can be used to connect a USB device. The same is true for the USB power connection, either port can be used.


3.4. LEDs

There are a total of 13 LEDs on the PIKA µWARP, four of them are used for Ethernet activity and status (two per port), eight of them are used for product status, and one is used as a power indicator.


3.4.1. Ethernet LEDs

The behavior of some of the LED depends on the product configuration. Refer to specific product quick start guides and/or user guides for further LED descriptions.


There are two LEDs beside each Ethernet port, one green and one orange. The green LED indicates link status and the orange LED indicates activity.



3.4.2. Power LED

On the top side under the logo there is a green LED which indicates the unit is powered.

3.4.3. Status LEDs

There are 8 status LEDs, 4 on the top and 4 on the bottom. The LEDs on the bottom are wired together with the ones on the top.

Each LED is a bi-colour Red/Green LED. For a description of the meaning of these LEDs please reference the appropriate product quick start guides and/or user guides.
