Nice plastic case, no water proof membrane on the developer edition so not leaving the device outside but could put it next to it’s older brother in the green house, all as per the pictures on the website, plus a bonus tiny jumper for all your Boot0 requirements - or if you lose it or leave it on the desk in the office, just use a paperclip or similar.
I’ve taken mine out it’s case and soldered up a 18550 battery holder, switch & JST connector for power. Tomorrow I’ll create a programmer/serial header for the left hand side connections.
Using VSCode on my MacBook along with a genuine ST-Link v2, Old Speckled Hen & one of the cats, got the basic app running, modified it a bit to change the Blinkenlights and then got it running on v3.
The TTI Boyz are command line jockeys and the modifications to the CMakeLists.txt to build from within VSCode haven’t made it to the docs &/or the two config files so I’ll post those in the morning.
The Basic_Lorawan is set to a RoadRunner interval of 10s - Meep Meep so that needs dialing back a bit. There are some other settings that are of interest - like the downlink port numbers & what they do in the firmware and some confusion about sending confirmed uplinks.
It plays happy tunes and did I mention the multi-colour lights?
Just need to find a more unusual sensor to attach - I’ve got some SparkFun boards that could go on the Qwiic connector plus an adapter cable to Seeed so I could look at my Seeed boards. Or make one. Any suggestions for a sensor to try very welcome.
I followed the Sensor Edition Software Setup to get the device running.
It is early days for the documentation as the firmware is developed, I’ve not seen a “Out the box” setup guide, only the programming guide - which gives much of the information for setup with keys etc.
I also got it up and running with the ST-link V2 and the LoRawan example, I see the messages in the console, anyone has a decoder / payload formatter at hand for the example? otherwise I will have to go thru the code
It occurs to me that you are probably seeing the out-the-box demo payload. The free-fall source only sends a count of free-falls, just one unsigned byte. The README.md in the Software folder only talks about dummy payloads.
I don’t think the source for the startup app has been released …
Hi Nick, i typed it and delete it yesterday to avoid being the nagging noob
so the payload 4077580B26800C010290A70921631BF0 (and 60% changes) is from the basic_lorawan, i am not able to understand where it comes from yet. I did flash/upload using the cube/stlinkv2 and I flashed the basic with LED and it worked. (I can confirm that it was flashed)
I wanted to use the freefall because it gives an example of reading sensor and sending it… and i think i understand it.
