This repository contains hardware information about MCCI's open-source hardware designs for Catena LoRaWAN projects.
All schematics are prepared with KiCad, an open-source hardware design package that is freely available. Schematics can be found in the kicad/ subdirectory.
|Directory or file||Contents|
|doc/hualian-sensors.xlsx||the project planning document - BOMs, pricing, planning information.|
|doc/hualian-garden.mm||the FreeMind mind-map used for planning the project. Very useful for reference.|
|Boards/pond-soil-proto/||the generic Catena 4410, used as a base design for the other sensor nodes. Integrated lux/temperature/pressure/humidity; external I2C, Dallas Semi OneWire, and specialized two-wire interface. In the end, all hardware was identical and based on this.|
|Boards/Catena-4410/Catena-4410-greenhouse/||the greenhouse sensor: integreated lux/temperature/pressure/humidity, plus external soil temperature/humidity|
|Boards/Catena-4410/Catena-4410-mushroom/||the mushroom-house sensor: integrated lux/temperature/pressure/humidity.|
|Boards/Catena-4410/Catena-4410-seaweed/||the seaweed-house sensor: integrated lux/temperature/pressure/humidity, plus external water temperature.|
|Boards/lib/||the library of common shapes|
|Boards/radio-feather-proto/||AKA the Catena 4420; this design combines an Adafruit Feather M0 BTLE with a separate Feather RadioWing to form a map-the-things node. Code is on branch MCCI-Catena of https://github.com/mcci-catena/mapthethings-arduino.git|
|Boards/solar-panel-0w5-usb/||the solar panel design for charging the LiPo batteries.|
|Boards/Catena-4450/||Catena 4450 wing schematic and PCB layout Drawing. Also contains Catena 4450 DIY Kit Assembly instructions.|
|Boards/Catena-4460/||Catena 4450 wing schematic and PCB layout Drawing.|
|Boards/Catena-4470/||Catena 4450 wing schematic and PCB layout Drawing.|
|Boards/Catena-4551/||Catena 4551 schematic,PCB Layout Drawing, Pinout Drawing, DIY Kit assembly and other related documents.|
|Boards/Catena-4611_4612/||Catena 4611/4612 schematic and PCB Layout Drawing.|
Software for most of these (apart from the radio-feather-proto) can be found starting here: https://github.com/mcci-catena/Catena4410-Sketches. Look particularly at Catena4410_Sensor1.ino, catena4450m101_sensor.ino. All the other repos used are forked and available from https://github.com/mcci-catena.
