EAGLE library for RFM69HW and similar radios
Can anyone share an EAGLE library for the RFM69HW and similar radios ? I'm looking for clear symbols and easily (hand) solderable footprints in an EAGLE 7.x library format.
If you have somthing similar for LORA radios, I'm also interested.
Have not noticed that there are some radios available called LORA. I googled a bit and I came to the conclusion that this might mean radio modules based on the SX1276 chip. So what exactly is LORA radios? Are they also supported by MySensors?
LoRA = Long RAnge It's a specification for long range radio communication, developed by https://www.lora-alliance.org/.
rfm95 is an example of a LoRA compatible radio. Unfortunately it doesn't use the same footprint as the RFM69 (but if I remember right, it's the same as RFM12?)
I'm not in front of my eagle stuff but you can extract it from this:
RFM95W and RFM69HCW shares the same footprint whereas RFM69HW has a different pinout. So for my long range nodes, i prefer RFM95W/69HCW footprint, more versatile imho
As tbowmo said LORA is a spec. On my side i plan to use RFM95W for its features and longer range, in raw radio mode as we're using with mysensors. So it could offer more flexibility maybe, if i need repeaters etc.. I started something (a lib) a while ago but not finished, and now i'm trying to refactor rfm69 lib, then rfm95 if not already done.
If you don't find your wish in the link above, i can send you/help you with some stuff i have done.
I hope this helps, a bit
