Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced LoRa Edge™, a new highly versatile and low power software defined LoRa®-based platform that will enable a wide portfolio of applications for indoor and outdoor asset management, targeting industrial, building, home, agriculture, transportation, and logistics markets, the company said.
The first product from this portfolio is a geolocation solution that revolutionizes the development of Internet of Things (IoT) devices for asset management applications, featuring low power Wi-Fi and GNSS sniffing capabilities combined with simple to use and cost effective LoRa Cloud™ geolocation and device management services to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of locating and monitoring IoT assets.
Over the next decade, 500 billion devices are expected to connect to the Internet (Cisco), as organizations continue to shift towards a more IoT-focused business strategy, and the majority of those IoT devices require some form of localization capability either at point of install or through the asset´s life.
The LoRa Edge geolocation platform will enable solution providers to leverage the unique localization capabilities of LoRa as well as GNSS and Wi-Fi scanning capabilities from a single chip solution, allowing customers to choose the best localization tool for the application task they are addressing.
