The SX1302 is a multi-channel high performance transmitter/receiver designed to simultaneously receive several LoRa packets using random spreading factors on random channels. Its goal is to enable robust connection between a central wireless data concentrator and a massive amount of wireless end-points spread over a very wide range of distances.
The gateway HAT is based on SX1302 with SX1250 as front-end. It is designed to use with Raspberry Pi to build smart metering fixed networks and Internet of Things applications. It features 10x signal channel, supports multiple nodes concurrent communication and FEC (Forward Error Correction) algorithm. SX1302 with Raspberry Pi can be set up as a LoRaWAN gateway to use with The Things Network.
The HAT has built-in L78B GPS module. The GPS module can provide geographical coordinates to RPi for further processing.
