Quickstart Raspberry Pi

For getting started with a Raspberry Pi based LoRa gateway, ChirpStack provides the ChirpStack Gateway OS. This OS is a Yocto based image which comes in two flavors:

  • Base: Everything that is required to turn your Raspberry Pi into a LoRa gateway, which forwards its data to an external ChirpStack instance.
  • Full: This image includes the full ChirpStack stack to use the Raspberry Pi both as gateway and as LoRaWAN Network Server.


Please refer to the ChirpStack Gateway OS Downloads for the downloads links and instructions on how to flash the downloaded image to a SD Card.
