Add On for RSSI Measurement on Particle 2/1x
to Particle Computer Docu Home)
is a tiny add-on for the 2/1x platform that can be soldered onto the Particle.
It does not extend the size of outline of the particle and does not interfere
with any existing functionality or additional board (as sensor boards etc.).
The tiny RSSI-add-on provides precise RSSI measurement directly from the RF
Steps to solder the tiny
RSSI board to the Particle 2/10
- The 32 kHz Oscillator
clock has to be turned to the Particle connector side. Just take the oscillator
and bend it so the oscillator is directed towards the connector side as shown
in the picture below. Now you see the 4 solder pads needed to attach the RSSI-board
onto it. These solder pads correspond to the 4 solder pads on the RSSI-board
- Add some tin to the solder-pads
of the Particle Boards if needed. Then take the RSSI-Board and align it so
that the solder-pads of the RSSI-Board match the Solder-Pads of the Particle-Board.
The solder-pads on the Particle-Boards are a little bit larger than the solder-pads
on the RSSI-Boards, so the board should come to rest as shown below.
- Solder the RSSI-Board
- Done. The Board looks
now like this:
