Sx1231 module setup


#1

Hai team,

I have this module https://www.thingbits.net/products/adafruit-feather-m0-rfm69hcw-packet-radio-868-or-915-mhz .is there any library supports to this board other then Radiohead library???

If I’m not mistaken this might not be the right chip for using with LoRa:

http://www.semtech.com/wireless-rf/rf-transceivers/sx1231/

FSK, GFSK, MSK, GMSK and OOK modulations

LoRa modulation is missing. Technically you could use the FSK channel, but I can’t help you with that.

Hai ,

could u tell me what is the main difference between sx1231 and sx1272 boards??


#4

I think Semtech provides all the specs on their site :slight_smile:


#5

I have read the specs of both sx1231 and sx1272 .
Both boards have same modulation techniques but why this https://github.com/matthijskooijman/arduino-lmic source doesn’t supports https://www.thingbits.net/products/adafruit-feather-m0-rfm69hcw-packet-radio-868-or-915-mhz board???

@kothuri_manikanta Matthijs Kooijman’s source code is a LMIC (LoraMAC-in-C) library for Arduino. LoRaMAC is the old name for LoRaWAN and LoRaWAN uses LoRa radio modulation. The sx1231 doesn’t support LoRa modulation, so it cannot be used for LoRaWAN.

Hi…this is cool module. They added a connector for any of our 3.7V Lithium polymer batteries and built in battery charging. You don’t need a battery, it will run just fine straight from the micro USB connector. But, if you do have a battery, you can take it on the go, then plug in the USB to recharge. The Feather will automatically switch over to USB power when its available.
