I don’t want to introduce an off board IC chip if I don’t have to -for example an 8bit shift register- however, we would like to power multiple LEDs and a couple of switches.
It should be possible to use the RAK5811 0-5V module’s exposure of the I2C pins or even the pins exposed on the RAK5005-0, however this would require the use of an IC chip.
Are there any RAK modules which might be of more use?
Has anyone here connected multiple LEDs to a Wisblock board … it should not need saying, but I will for clarification: the LEDs will need to be controlled individually, since they will be indicators for things such as number of satellites (when using GNSS), LoRa receipt notification, etc.
We also need to wire in a couple of switches, whose positional data will be used to take alternate code paths, has anyone done any of this using nothing but RAK modules?
Further using the RAK5811 module, the self-crimping connection blocks are a little on the tall side when looking at the enclosure profile we woudl like to maintain -has anyone perhaps removed these teminal blocks and instead connected directly to the pins?
Another quickie is whether or not anyone has had any success extending the reach of the reset button? i.e. is there any way of resetting the board, for example, do we tie RST to GRND on the RAK4631?
