Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced that Elmeasure India Pvt. Ltd. (Elmeasure), a developer of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for the utility metering and energy management industries, and ClodPi Labs (ClodPi), an IoT innovator specializing in long range sensor networks based on Semtech´s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol, developed a new LoRa-based prepaid energy metering solution, the company said.
This new line of prepaid smart meters tracks and reports usage data in real time for precise billing and reduced energy waste in utility applications.
