Driver library for SX1272/SX1276 transceivers
Table of Contents
This device uses CSS modulation to provide much improved link budget. The RF hardware is same as in FSK devices, just with added LoRa spread-spectrum modem.
This library provides functions to configure radio chip and transmit & receive packets.
Using This Library¶
service_radio() must be called continuously from main loop, to service interrupts from radio.
Board Specific implementation¶
rf_switch callback allows the program to implement control of RF switch unique to their board.
Example options are:
- SKY13373 for external power amplifier implementation. Requires two DigitalOut pins.
- SKY13350 using PA_BOOST. requires two DigitalOut pins.
- PE4259-63: controlled directly by radio chip, no software function needed. However, in the case of SX1276MB1xAS, the RXTX pin on IO2 should be driven by this callback function when R16 is installed (without R15) on this shield board.
Some configurations may need to force the use of RFO or PA_BOOST, or a board could offer both options. The
rf_switch function pointer callback should support the implementation choice on the board.
