The short burst from SGR 1935+2154
(GECAM detection: Xiao et al., GCN 30400;
Fermi GBM Observations: Hamburg et al., GCN 30407)
triggered Konus-Wind on 2021 July 7 at
T0=2015.644 s UT (00:33:35.644).

The burst light curve shows a single pulse with a total
duration of ~120 ms. The emission is seen up to ~200 keV.

The Konus-Wind light curve of this GRB is available at

As observed by Konus-Wind, the burst
had a fluence of 1.48(-0.08,+0.08)x10^-6 erg/cm2,
and a 2-ms peak flux, measured from T0-0.014 s,
of 1.94(-0.39,+0.39)x10^-5 erg/cm2/s
(both in the 20 - 500 keV energy range).

The time-averaged spectrum of the burst
(measured from T0 to T0+0.064 s)
is best fit in the 20 - 200 keV range
by a power law with exponential cutoff model:
dN/dE ~ (E^alpha)*exp(-E*(2+alpha)/Ep)
with  alpha = 0.43(-0.80,+0.88)
and Ep = 38(-4,+3) keV (chi2 = 12/14 dof).

All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence level.
All the quoted values are preliminary.
