repeat message down a chain, adding to the payload at each repeating device

Dependencies:   sx12xx_hal

radio chip selection

Radio chip driver is not included, because options are available.
If you're using SX1272 or SX1276, then import sx127x driver into your program.
if you're using SX1261 or SX1262, then import sx126x driver into your program.
if you're using SX1280, then import sx1280 driver into your program.
If you're using NAmote72 or Murata discovery, then you must import only sx127x driver.

network architecture

  • UNIT 0x00 transmitting only device: mandatory.
  • UNIT 0x01: repeating device
  • Uni-directional network: Each unit can only receive message from UNIT_ID - 1 (previous unit)
  • UINT n receiving only device LAST_UNIT: mandatory; prints payload onto UART.

configuration

Each device in the network is uniquely identified by:

  • UNIT_ID: ID byte designating address of this device.
  • UNIT_LAST: If defined, this device prints payload onto serial port instead of re-transmitting payload.

All devices in network must be configured identically with the following:

  • TX_INTERVAL_US: how often to take measurement and send to UNIT_ID+1 (time of complete cycle).
  • MAX_TX_LENGTH: Maximum size of payload, in bytes. Payload is sent in fragments when exceeds this value; aka size of each fragment.
  • TXRX_PADDING_US : Time allotted for RX-TX turnaround and CPU overhead
  • MAX_TX_ATTEMPTS: Count of transmit retries permitted
  • SPREADING_FACTOR LoRa configuration of datarate
  • CF_MHZ : Operating radio frequency


Duration of retry interval is auto-calculated from LoRa modem configuration (bandwidth/sf) and MAX_TX_LENGTH.
Take care that TX_INTERVAL_US value is appropriate relative to total retry interval (interval * MAX_TX_ATTEMPTS)
