I ordered by mistake a SX1278 module which has only 8 connected pins.
When trying to connect to an ESP32 I realize that I need other pins from chipset
Except de-soldering the chipset, do I have other options to use this module for OMG?
I think you should be OK. The CC1101 only needs 8 pins, but you may need to add a new definition for them.
What MCU are you using?
Having a quick look at the code and your pinout you will also need pins DIO1 and DIO2
DIO1 is used in the module definition
new Module(RF_MODULE_CS, RF_MODULE_DIO0, RF_MODULE_RST, \ RF_MODULE_DIO1
And DIO2 for raw input
# define STR_MODULE "SX1278" # ifndef RF_MODULE_RECEIVER_GPIO # define RF_MODULE_RECEIVER_GPIO RF_MODULE_DIO2 # endif rf.initReceiver(RF_MODULE_RECEIVER_GPIO, RF_MODULE_FREQUENCY);
Without it, it won’t work, maybe try and solder to wires from the module pins/pads (6 & 7)?
This was the first one I made, had to solder a lot more and soldering is my worst skill, it works, and prob. the best of all mine made.
Thank you! I will try soldering the missing wires.
