I am using ATA8520E module. What is the SPI command to configure the SIGFOX module as emulator. Also please help me how to activate the SIGFOX cloud access with the ID & PAC code.

On investigating the emulator I find that to use the emulator the device must;
"In particular, the transceiver must integrate the “emulation mode” command, that is a command to switch from private key to public key.”
The ATA8520E does support this function, SPI command 0x16 with no argument, toggles back and forth between public and private key use. A document update to reflect this command is in planning.

There is no SPI command used to configure the ATA8520E as an emulator. There are however several test commands that can be used to test the functioning of your module and controller interface. These are detailed in the ATA8520E data sheet SPI command section in paragraph 2.1.2.
As to registering your device there is a process detailed on the SigFox back end server website at URL;
In summary you must first register with SigFox and obtain a license, then the device must be registered by the user on the SigFox server site prior to first use.
Best regards, George

I am testing with SIGFOX network emulator and I am from India. We dont have base station here and there is no point in registering the SIGFOX module. Please clarify the steps to configure the SIGFOX into emulator mode, so that i can connect with my SIGFOX Emulator and communicate the messages to the SIGFOX network emulator page.
