.NET Library for the Dragino LoRa Extension Boards
A Windows IoT Core library for the Dragino LoRa expansion boards
NOTE: This is a work in progress.
The library is developed and tested on the following expansion boards:
More to come...
The .NET library
Dragino.Radio.ITransceiver interface represents the radio driver.
The transceiver code supports the Semtech's SX1276 radio chip (used by the Dragino boards).
Create an instance of the transceiver using the static
Dragino.Radio.TransceiverFactory class. Its
Create-method takes an instance of
TransceiverSettings tells how the radio chip should operate and the
TransceiverPinSettings tells which GPIO pins are used to hook up the expansion board. If the LoRa/GPS HAT is used there is a
TransceiverPinSettings.DraginoLoraGpsHat preset that can be used, otherwise the pin numbers must be specified.
To be described here...
There is a simple LoRaWAN gateway, implemented as a packet forwarder (which means that it will pick up radio packets and forward them to a server).
Dragino.Lora.Demo.Gateway.sln shows how it is used.
If you have two LoRa expansion boards (and two Raspberry Pis) you can let them communicate with each other.
Note that there really isn't any difference between the sender and the receiver; but in my demo the sender will transmitt a short message periodically, and the receiver will then send it back in reverse order.
