Introduction

API 7 is a new firmware concept that significantly extends the functionality and robustness of existing API 6

Features

  • support LoRaWan technology, NB-IoT ready, Sigfox-LoraWan dual mode
  • GNSS support
  • lower idle consumption
  • API 6 was pull-based, API 7 is event (IRQ) driven
  • variable bit-depth of data reported (typically 8,12bit)
  • 8x255 configuration registes (8pages, can be extended to 16)
  • data logging capability into EEPROM (2MB)
  • 2 color LED with configurable blinking patterns support
  • modular structure (sources, processing modules, filters, messaging modules, etc.)
    • the shift from predefined fixed modes to fully configurable processing blocks
    • universal processing of data by modules within the firmware
  • faster and more seamless introduction of new sensors and functionality
  • multidevice local OTA firmware update and configuration (proprietary broadcast protocol)
  • improved internal health checks - increases long-term stability
  • possible to store any configuration and restore it later including factory default settings
  • support 4 analog/digital inputs, up to 5 digital outputs
  • support external UART, I2C,1-wire
  • improved security - signed fw, encrypted OTA
  • power control 1dB step
