Is Luos for me? 🤔

Integrating Luos into an electronic board

To create and match with a default reference design, electronic boards must respect some design rules to work in a Luos network properly.

Electronic design

A Luos-friendly electronic board must contain at least the following elements:

  • 1 MCU ↗ (microcontroller unit): It hosts, as a node, the Luos firmware along with the different servicesSoftware element run by Luos that can communicate with other services. It can be a driver or an app. (drivers and apps).
  • At least two connectors: They allow to link boards together into a Luos network and link them as a daisy-chain or star mounting. Through PTP pins, nodes know if there is another node connected to the connector. This is used when the user wants to make a topology detection of the system.

One-wire reference design

Luos' One-wire official connector is DF11-4DP-2DS ↗.

RS485 reference design

Luos' RS485 official connector is DF11-8DP-2DS ↗.

See the default pinout configuration in luos_hal_config.h ↗ file for chosen the MCU family.
