Now available in the EU from Welectron (Germany)
What it is:
This is the USB variant of the MoteinoMEGA, it is designed for use with RFM69 transceivers and RFM95/RFM96 LoRa transceivers.
It has a built in FTDI USB-to-TTL serial chip, and only a micro-USB cable is required for power and programming.
Otherwise it has the same features as the non-USB MoteinoMEGA.
MoteinoMEGA-USB is designed to be used as a main gateway for a network of Moteino nodes, without the need of an additional FTDI adapter.
IMPORTANT: Power should be provided through the USB, and the VIN pins can be used to provide 5V to other devices. You can however power the device through VIN from a battery pack but will use a few uA more current than a regular MoteinoMEGA. The headers are the same as the regular MoteinoMEGA, see diagram below.
The rest of the details/specifications are the same as MoteinoMEGA, click here to see the details of regular MoteinoMEGA.
- RFM69CW (13dBm)
- RFM69HCW (20dBm)
- RFM95/RFM96 LoRa (20dBm)
What you get:
An assembled and tested MoteinoMEGA-USB. The testing is done by loading the Moteino with a sample sketch to ensure functionality of transceiver and FLASH chip (if any). Side headers and transceiver are not included, you can add those from the options above. A monopole wire antenna is included separately when a transceiver is added. Connector is microUSB as of revision R2:
