A few months ago, I published post about DPA .NET Class. This article describes simple, but effective library used for DPA handling by MCU (UART interface). Published library is independent on the MCU family, but it was written for 32-bit ARM processors with Cortex-M3 core and GNU C compiler.
Library consists of two files:

*header file: iqrf_dpa.h
*code file: iqrf_dpa.c

    I’m sorry, I don’t seem to recognize this DPA. So many DPA abbreviations around…
    What does this DPA stand for? Is this a newly-coined abbrv? Can anyone help?

      not sure, but for me it seems to be somekind of unified device control protocol over usart or something like that.

        Oh okay, so: Direct Peripheral Access (DPA). A proprietary abbreviation.
        A bit of a promotional posting this… IQRF looks like a mostly Czech Republic creation.
        The thing that really scares me about this is that I can’t find any solid information on its wireless link security features. Looking at some of their products, transceivers rely on a PIC MCU to handle protocol, so much is in software, and I don’t believe the RF ICs have any security features.
        So, just how secure is this thing, really? Totally gives me the jeebies…
