The ADI LoRa reference design is an Arduino-like development platform based on the MAX32670 ultralow power microcontroller (MCU) with integrated power management for processing, control, and connectivity. The MCU system is based on the ARM Cortex-M4 processor, a collection of digital peripherals, embedded SRAM and flash memory, and an analog subsystem which provides clocking, reset, and power management capability. The MAX32670 features industry leading ultralow power, which makes it ideal for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The platform comes in an Arduino Uno form factor, with two PMOD connectors, and an ESP32 Dev Kit connector for easy-to-connect sensors and signal conditioning add-on modules. The on-board LoRa connectivity makes this board IoT-ready right out of the box. The solution is complete with working software and hardware, as well as software examples.
The base platform is accompanied with various Analog Devices add-on hardware but is also compatible with 3rd party hardware. A free programming and debugging tool called Maxim SDK is also provided by Analog Devices.
Each sub-section contains a general description of the board, detailed description of the connectors, jumpers, and buttons (if any). It also provides links to the design support files (schematics, bill of materials, design projects, and technical documentation), as well as internal links to the example demo software projects.
The MAX32670-LR-ARDZ LoRa Baseboard consists of the MAX32670 high-reliability, ultralow power microcontroller based on Arm Cortex-M4 processor, and the LR1110 LoRa RF transceiver module.
In order to use this base board, all hardware settings such as the hardware peripheral connections, jumpers and UART switch configurations, power configurations, connectivity options, and the USB connectors and programming connections are provided in this page. Links to the schematics and the layout files are also available below.
The EV-CATTLETAG-ARDZ is a system module that uses ADI power solution on the controller and transceiver module used for virtual fencing solution for livestock, where the animals are controlled by GPS-collars and an app. The system is consisting of a MAX20361 power harvester, MAX20335 BMS, and a MAX30210 temperature sensor and a buzzer with an option for vibration motor.
