LoRa with S3A7 - Quick Start Guide (Summary)


#1

Thanks to Medium One for contributing this tutorial.

This tutorial will show you how to get started with connecting two S3A7 boards using Lora PMODs to Renesas IoT Sandbox. One S3A7 board will operate in Gateway mode with a Lora radio and wifi connectivity to the cloud. The second board will operate in Endpoint mode with a Lora radio and the AMS sensor. Note this Demo is not intended for production use.

What you need to get started:

  • 2x S3A7 Fast Prototyping Lit
  • WiFi Internet access
  • 2x LinkLabs Lora PMOD modules (tested with 1.3.1 LinkLabs firmware)
  • Lora Demo image with S3A7 (updated 9-30-16)
