LoRaWAN® Stack ArchitecturE
The LoRaWAN® Protocol Stack is an implementation of the LoRaWAN® Specification v1.0.3 and the LoRaWAN® Regional Parameters v1.0.3refA, designed for operation of end nodes according to this standard. The stack can be operated inside (library version) or as (modem version) an embedded firmware for operation at a microcontroller or system-on-chip. The library version (object code) includes an example application and an example project for IDE and can be used in conjunction with an embedded operation system (OS) dedicated for microcontrollers, while the modem version (firmware / binary) includes a serial interface and power management. Both versions are available with the LoRaWAN® Protocol Stack and can be used.
