The code that made it possible to have sensors directly on the GW, is only available in development branch, and haven't been migrated to master branch.
You could always emulate the serial protocol on the GW your self, and inject that in the sensor data stream. But depending on the MCU you are using, you might run your head against the flash size wall..
It's not a perfect pin-out match. You should definitely check out this thread:
But you're right, it's great for beginners. That's why it forms the basis of the Candle project.
@mfalkvidd I tested shorts with my multimeter and didn't find any shorts. However I should receive next week some new of these chips and I will try to solder them new. Let's hope that that's the issue!
@torfinn These settings should make it work, regardless of which version you buy:
// If you are using an RF-Nano, you have to switch CE and CS pins.
#define MY_RF24_CS_PIN 9 // Used by the MySensors library.
#define MY_RF24_CE_PIN 10 // Used by the MySensors library.
// Enable and select radio type attached
#define MY_RF24_PA_LEVEL RF24_PA_MAX
// Mysensors advanced settings
#define MY_RF24_DATARATE RF24_1MBPS // This datarate is supported by pretty much all NRF24 radios, including the RF-Nano.
@sundberg84 Yes, but I wonder if it will also work if I use the regular (round) THT pads from the Pro Mini (as the cheapest and most widely found Pro Minis seem to be like these)
I'll probably just try it I guess, but of course have to adapt my PCB accordingly to get the castellated half holes. Hope my PCB manufacturer knows what to do with the KiCAD file.
