Starting the board for the first time
The WisTrio Board comes pre-loaded with firmware. It is useful for testing LoRaWAN, GPS and on-board sensors.
- Connect the GPS and LoRaWan Antennas to the WisTrio Board
- The Antenna sockets are labeled, make sure not to mismatch the antennas.
- Connect the WisTrio board to a Host PC using the MicroUSB Cable
- You should see LEDs near the Micro-USB port flash once.
- Access the serial console at 115200 baud
- Windows users can access using PuTTY
- Linux users can use tools like
Here is a what you should expect on the serial console (using picocom on linux):
