What is PA_BOOST pin on RFM69HW
I am reading the documentation of the RFM69HW and if we want to set the power range > 13dBm (default value in mysensors config), we need to use the PA_BOOST pin !!
But i don't find this pin ?
Someone knows what we have to do for use the +20dBm config ?
Thanks you for your answers
You just need to connect your antenna to the ANT pin.
Regarding what you said, this can look even more confusing looking at fig 41, for using +20db settings, you just need to connect the ant pin
In fact Hoperf is selling the module and doesn't give much information about their sch, mixing a bit semtech datasheet and their specs, but the RF chip is from Semtech, sx1231, you can also find their datasheet, a little bit different.
So PA_PIN is a pin from the semtech chip, and Hoperf uses a TXRX switch between PA_BOOST and RFIO pins for TX and RX, to the ANT.
If i remember well, maybe there are some info on google about this, RX for RFIO and TX for PA_BOOST, for the H modules of course. Which is why there are some different PA settings for H or not modules.
Connect to the ANT pin, set you power level,.. through Mysensors. that's all.
@scalz Ok, so i will connect the ant pin and change the config
Thank you for your help Scalz
