Another Communication Bus Usage Example


System Reset All the Time

According to the situation we have collected so far, the most likely to cause a constant reset problem may have two reasons:

  • Power supply problem: please make sure the voltage of USB ≥ 4.7V, 300mA;

  • You chose an error board: because each type of board may have a different FLASH size, and they have a different partition map, it will cause the internal logic error.

Node to node communication

On the premise of no hardware problem, LoRa nodes can communicate with each other node-to-node. The key to success node-to-node communication need make sure the following 7 points the same:

  1. The same sending and listening frequency: LoRa.setFrequency(frequency);

  2. The same bandwidth: LoRa.setSignalBandwidth(signalBandwidth);

  3. The same coding rate: LoRa.setCodingRate4(codingRateDenominator);

  4. The same preamble length: LoRa.setPreambleLength(preambleLength);

  5. The same sync word: LoRa.setSyncWord(syncWord);

  6. The status of LORA_IQ_INVERSION is the same;

  7. the same SPREADING FACTOR;
