Introduction

The aim of this project is to show an example of an end-device LoRaWAN stack implementation.

This project has 2 active branches in place.

Branch L2 spec RP spec Tag/Milestone Class Comments
master 1.0.3 v1.0.3revA v4.4.4 A/B/C Released
develop 1.0.4 / 1.1.1 2-1.0.1 M 5.0.0 A/B/C LoRaWAN L2 1.0.4 / 1.1.1

This project fully implements ClassA, ClassB and ClassC end-device classes and it also provides SX1272/73, SX1276/77/78/79, SX1261/2 and LR1110 radio drivers.

For each currently supported platform example applications are provided.

  • LoRaMac/classA: ClassA end-device example application.

  • LoRaMac/classB: ClassB end-device example application.

  • LoRaMac/classC: ClassC end-device example application.

  • LoRaMac/fuota-test-01: FUOTA test scenario 01 end-device example application. (Based on provided application common packages)

  • LoRaMac/periodic-uplink-lpp: ClassA/B/C end-device example application. Periodically uplinks a frame using the Cayenne LPP protocol. (Based on provided application common packages)

  • ping-pong: Point to point RF link example application.

  • rx-sensi: Example application useful to measure the radio sensitivity level using an RF generator.

  • tx-cw: Example application to show how to generate an RF Continuous Wave transmission.

Note: Each LoRaWAN application example (LoRaMac/*) includes an implementation of the LoRa-Alliance; LoRaWAN certification protocol.

Note: The LoRaWAN stack API documentation can be found at: http://stackforce.github.io/LoRaMac-doc/

Supported platforms

This project currently provides support for the below platforms.
This project can be ported to other platforms using different MCU than the ones currently supported.
The Porting Guide document provides guide lines on how to port the project to other platforms.

Getting Started

Prerequisites

Please follow instructions provided by Development environment document.

Cloning the repository

Clone the repository from GitHub

$ git clone https://github.com/lora-net/loramac-node.git loramac-node

LoRaMac-node project contains Git submodules that must be initialized

$ cd loramac-node
$ git submodule update --init

Secure-element commissioning

This project currently supports 3 different secure-elements soft-se, lr1110-se and atecc608a-tnglora-se implementations.

In order to personalize the MCU binary file with LoRaWAN EUIs or/and AES128 keys one must follow the instructions provided by soft-se, lr1110-se and atecc608a-tnglora-se chapters

soft-se

soft-se is a pure software emulation of a secure-element. It means that everything is located on the host MCU memories. The DevEUI, JoinEUI and AES128 keys may be stored on a non-volatile memory through dedicated APIs.

In order to update the end-device identity (DevEUI, JoinEUI and AES128 keys) one must update the se-identity.h file located under ./src/peripherals/soft-se/ directory.

Note: In previous versions of this project this was done inside Commissioning.h files located under each provided example directory.

lr1110-se

lr1110-se abstraction implementation handles all the required exchanges with the LR1110 radio crypto-engine.

All LR1110 radio chips are pre-provisioned out of factory in order to be used with LoRa Cloud Device Join Service.

In case other Join Servers are to be used the DevEUI, Pin, JoinEUI and AES128 keys can be updated by following the instructions provided on chapter "13. LR1110 Provisioning" of the LR1110 User Manual.

When the compile option SECURE_ELEMENT_PRE_PROVISIONED is set to ON the lr1110-se will use the factory provisioned data (DevEUI, JoinEUI and AES128 keys).
When the compile option SECURE_ELEMENT_PRE_PROVISIONED is set to OFF the lr1110-se has to be provisioned by following one of the methods described on chapter "13. LR1110 Provisioning" of the LR1110 User Manual. The DevEUI, Pin and JoinEUI can be changed by editing the se-identity.h file located in ./src/peripherals/lr1110-se/ directory.

atecc608a-tnglora-se

The atecc608a-tnglora-se abstraction implementation handles all the required exchanges with the ATECC608A-TNGLORA secure-element.

ATECC608A-TNGLORA secure-element is always pre-provisioned and its contents can't be changed.
