Anmeldeschluss: Di. 3. Oktober 2017

 Swisscom is setting up a Swiss-wide additional network for the Internet of Things: the Low Power Network (LPN). It is designed for the transmission of small amounts of data independently of the electrical network and forms the basis for smart cities, energy-efficient buildings, machine-to-machine networking and new digital applications. The Low Power Network is based on the open LoRaWAN industry standard (www.lora-alliance.org).

In the LoRaWAN device Expert Training you will be introduced on how to develop an energy efficient LoRaWAN Node by yourself. You will get a hands-on training on design and implementation of an LPN based node.

The number of participants to this training is strictly limited to 10 persons!

Attendees will receive a deep-dive into
  • Low Level LoRaWAN stack implementation for embedded processors
  • General overview on how to design (HW) and develop (SW) LoRaWAN products
  • Specific examples and hands-on in using the Murata LoRaWAN Module
  • Best practices on how to achieve low energy consumption
Agenda

Morning
Introduction to LoRaWAN Technology, node hard- and software

  • Recap of the LoRaWAN network technology
  • HW Overview of a basic LoRaWAN node
  • SW Overview of the Semtech Open Source LoRaWAN Stack
  • The Murata Module (STM32L0 + SX1276)
  • Development Tools

Afternoon
Hands on development of a sample application on Murata Module

  • We will develop a complete application going through all the steps
  • Embedded Node Application design
  • Interfacing with external sensors on I2C / SPI (specific for the Murata Module)
  • Coding
  • Low Power Best practices
HW included
  • Murata LoRa Module
  • Carrier Board
  • STM32 – Programmer
Preparation

You will need to bring along a Windows PC with the Atollic Studio IDE installed (MAC/Linux will not work) - https://atollic.com/resources/download/windows/

Target Group
  • Firmware Programmers
  • Hardware Designers that want to design LoRaWAN products
Requirements

You should have at least basic knowledge of LoRaWAN (or attended the LPN Bootcamp https://events.kimeportal.ch/en/bootcamp-autum2017), an idea about C programming (basic is enough as we will work with templates) as well as an understanding of HW designs and components (Microprocessors, RTC, Sensors, SPI, I2C, GPIO, ...).
