You just create the schematic symbol and footprint using the tool.

Yes, but how would I be able to get that into a PCB Design & Schematic Software such as Egale CAD.

I just started using this type of software so, I'm not aware of all the features they offer. Do these software packages usually have a built-in function to create your own components? Is that how I would go about it? Create the mc120 module manually and then choose it from the list of components to be placed on the board. Everything I have done so far has been using existing component libraries.

The module footprint and pin assignments are in the mcMod120 Product Specification which can be downloaded here:

mc-Things General Discussion / Integrating mcModules into schematic designs
« Last post by kbrooking on November 15, 2017, 09:52:32 am »
Iím looking into doing my own design for my sensors and have a question Iím hoping your engineers can get me started.

When Iím using a software tool like Eagle cad to design my sensor schematic, how do I go about integrating the mcModule into the schematic so that it shows up in the gerber files and is included in the BOM.

For example, there are library files on the internet that allow you to import the Arduino MCU into Eagle CAD and then you are able to select that component and drop it into your schematic, which is then included in the BOM and board layout.

Is there a way to do the same for the mcModules?

I have found manufacturers on the internet that will build your prototype design if you submit the gerber files but, Iím just wondering how do I get the mcModule included into those files.

Could you try it with Ethernet and see if the same behavior happens?

WIFI

The middle LED continues to blink like it's connected to my router.

here is the attached document to make it easier. This document is also available on our website (https://www.mcthings.com/products/mcstudio/ )

I am sorry you are experiencing problem with the gateway, the latest gateway version addressed an issue  regarding some MQTT interactions. There is no reason why it would have any persistence after you downgraded to an earlier version.

Could you answer the following questions for me to help me pinpoint the problem.

1. Are you using WiFi or Ethernet?
2. When the gateway is unresponsive, do you see the one LED on the gateway continue to blink regularly?

I upgraded the latest gw110app firmware and I am now experiencing max 24-48 hours responsiveness before it crashes. I downgraded to the prior version and the problem persisted, so I upgraded again and I still have the same problem. Logging to usb would be helpful for us to get you debug info. My gateway is now totally unstable and I have no idea how to fix it. I have uses .5/1/2 amp power supplies with no apparent difference regarding this issue. Please advise.

Every column that is solid red indicates when the gateway stops relaying mqtt from all of my devices. It is then also unresponsive (not even visible) in mc-Studio.

The beacon format is in part of the mcStudio download.
Yes beacons are extremely low power. Sending a temprature every minute get you 6 year battery life on a coin-cell.
 
The download contains the file BeaconWhitePaper.pdf. Beacons are send over UDP or can be sent also to MQTT. There is a .Net example in the doc, which is simple to convert to python.

We will change the web-site to make it easier to find.
