The WDKA Riot Shield is a simple Arduino shield with a Microchip RN2483 LoRa transceiver module. The shield has the following inputs:
 +
* 2 analog resistance based sensors like RTDs (PTC/NTC) or LDRs. The resistive sensors form a voltage divider together with a 10kΩ ground.
 +
* 1 electret microphone input using the [http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/256/MAX4465-MAX4469-62764.pdf MAX4466] as amplifier module.
 +
* 1 LittleBit input. The LittleBit chain needs to be separately powered through a LittleBit power module at the beginning of the chain.

WdKA RIoT Arduino Shield

WdKA RIoT Arduino Shield

The WDKA Riot Shield is a simple Arduino shield with a Microchip RN2483 LoRa transceiver module. The shield has the following inputs:

  • 2 analog resistance based sensors like RTDs (PTC/NTC) or LDRs. The resistive sensors form a voltage divider together with a 10kΩ ground.
  • 1 electret microphone input using the MAX4466 as amplifier module.
  • 1 LittleBit input. The LittleBit chain needs to be separately powered through a LittleBit power module at the beginning of the chain.


Programming the RN2483

To get started with the shield the RN2483 LoraWan module needs to be programmed with the correct frequency channels, Device ID, Application Security key and the Network Security key. All these can be found in the iTalks interface. The application used for the current shields is called IASAPP and has application id BE-7A-00-30. In the devices section of the application in iTalks you can see an overview of the devices with Device EUI and Address. Clicking on the device will show the necessary keys. Make sure to program the NetwSKey and the AppSKey!

Programming can be done with the python script in the firmware/utils directory: https://github.com/mywdka/WdKA_IoT/blob/master/LoraWAN_Shield/firmware/utils/init_riot_shield.py

python2 init_riot_shield.py /dev/ttyUSB0 DevAddr NwkSKey AppsKey

To do so remove the two red jumpers and connect a USB tot serial adapter (TTL not RS232!) to the TX and RX pin on the module side:
