Can the GPIO9 pin from the RN2483 Mote be used to wake up the host MCU?

There is no GPIO9 feature implemented in the code as of June 2018. Currently, when the Mote MCU is put to sleep it can be awakened by any of the following:

  • Push-button press (IOC)
  • Watch Dog Timer Event (also used to trigger periodic uplink transmissions during sleep)
  • Connecting the USB cable (uses comparator to wake).

The RN Module is not used in the demo to wake the Mote MCU from sleep. If you're interested in that feature, then we recommend you try to enable the IOC on the EUSART RX pin connected to the RN2483 module; when the RN2483 wakes from sleep it will respond with OK indicating that it has completed its sleep action. This way when the RN module wakes up, it can alter the connected MCU device.
