  • First of all, make sure you have followed the getting started instructions, which can be found in: https://cloud.pycom.io/index.php/s/fb19uo4IaEdMldR

    A new release is available which bring bug fixes and a newly added LoRa class as part of the network module.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: All jumpers except for the Tx and Rx of the UART need to be removed from the expansion board in order for LoRa to work (this won't be needed on the production version of the LoPy). See the attached picture for reference.


    These are the release notes for version='v1.8.1-53-ga8a6e4b on 2016-06-29'

    New features:

    • LoRa class contructor permits to invert the Tx and Rx IQ signals.
    • Minimal time module

    Example code:

    from network import LoRa
    lora = LoRa() # initialize with recommended settings
    lora.send('LoRa packet test', False)  # Send data in a synchronous way
    lora.recv() # get any data pending in the receive queue

    In order to send LoRa packets between your 2 LoPys:

    • In LoPy # 1:
    from network import LoRa
    # initialize LoRa as a node (with Rx IQ inversion)
    lora = LoRa(tx_iq=False, rx_iq=True)
    for i in range(10):
        lora.send('LoRa packet test #{}'.format(i), False)  # Send data in a synchronous way
    • In LoPy # 2:
    from network import LoRa
    import time
    # initialize LoRa as a Gateway (with Tx IQ inversion)
    lora = LoRa(tx_iq=True, rx_iq=False)
    for i in range(10):
        print(lora.recv())  # just receive
        time.sleep(1.5) # wait for 1500 milliseconds
