Summary

The RN2483 LoRa® Technology PICtail™/PICtail Plus Daughter Board is a development board that showcases the Microchip RN2483 Low-Power Long Range, LoRa® Technology Transceiver Module.

Development of a LoRa system with the RN2483 connected to Microchip’s PIC MCU line is possible on PIC18 Explorer boards via the 28-pin PICtail connector, or on Explorer 16 boards using the 30-pin card edge PICtail Plus connector.

The PICtail board also has an on-board PIC18 MCU available for custom user functions. It is pre-programmed to provide a simple USB-to-UART serial bridge enabling easy serial connection. Demonstration of the RN2483 is performed by plugging the daughter board into a USB port of a PC. The USB port powers the daughter board and enables the user to communicate using the RN2483’s simple ASCII command interface.
