  • Working! The problem appears to be that the negative battery contact (the PCB land) needed to be abraded just a bit before it made contact. Removing and inserting the batteries half a dozen times or so and Voila! All is working now. They both behaved this way, by the way. Batch number 119107 if that is of interest.

  • I received two boards a few days ago, and was expecting (based on the video) to be able to pop a CR2032 in and see some action (or at least a glowing LED or two). Nada. Was the yes/no demo not actually loaded on the boards? Or am I missing something obvious? I do intend to set up the toolchain, but was hoping for some early indication that the hardware worked as expected.

  • Is this board functionally equivalent (firmware-wise) to the Atmel ATZB-24-A2 module (originally the Meshnetics board before Atmel bought them)? I would love to be able to develop an application using BitCloud on a couple of these DEV-09734 boards, but after I get it working and want to perhaps deploy a couple of dozen using my custom peripheral circuitry, the ATZB-24-A2 OEM module makes a lot more sense. The 'dev kit' for those modules is hideously expensive (in the $500 area), and I don't think it really gives me anything more than I would get with this board and BitCloud.
    I am not too interested in dropping all the way down to the chip level on my (eventual) custom PCB as I hate working with QFN packages and don't know jack about chip antennas, baluns, etc, which is why I am looking at the ATZB-24-A2 module instead.
    Anyone have an opinion on this option?

No public wish lists :(
