This meetup will be a hands-on workshop for anyone interested in building and setting up their own Things Network gateway using the ic880A-SPI and a Raspberry Pi. Based on the experience of community members we will go through the steps of building our own gateways and setting them up to join The Things Network.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE, this workshop is for the community by the community, the only limitation is that YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE the parts to build your own gateway.
Thanks to the experience of Frank Beks in building a gateway and sourcing parts we have put together a list of the most affordable options that take care not to compromise stability.
After signing up for the workshop you will recieve the parts list and details on how to pay for one of the following options so that all the required parts can be ordered in time for the workshop:
1. Complete gateway parts list including PCB, casing and Raspberry Pi with SD card € 348
2. Gateway parts list including PCB, without casing, with Raspberry Pi with SD card € 334
3. Gateway parts list including PCB, including casing, without Raspberry Pi and SD card (note:you will need to bring your own Raspberry Pi 3 (or 2) to fit the PCB and 8GB SD) € 303
4. Gateway parts list including PCB, without casing and without Raspberry Pi and SD card (note: you will need to bring your own Raspberry Pi 3 (or 2) to fit the PCB and 8GB SD) € 288
Option including casing for stability. These prices are an all-inclusive cost only for parts including tax and shipping, if any further reduction can be gained through multiple purchase (more than 10) this will be refunded at the workshop.
