Semtech LoRa® RF Technology for IoT Used in Compact Wireless Module from Murata
Low cost module equipped with a LoRa SX1276 transceiver caters to IoT and M2M applications, including smart metering, wearable devices and tracking solutions
Camarillo, California - August 02, 2016
Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced that its LoRa® wireless RF technology is integrated into a low cost, compact module from Murata, a leading manufacturer of electronic components, modules and devices, for use in a wide variety of Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.
The compact LoRaWAN™ module, which is scheduled to begin production in October, is expected to support a wide range of sensors for IoT applications, including smart meters, wearables and tracking devices. It is able to operate within a wide range of temperatures; its memory is capable of supporting a range of applications; and its flexible data rate increases battery life and optimizes long-range communication.
This compact module, integrated with a STMicroelectronics STM32L0 series ARM Cortex M0+ 32bit microcontroller, is aimed to help ease integration into a variety of sensors. Semtech’s SX1276 low power, long-range transceiver is also included in the module to provide ultra-long range spread spectrum communication, high interference immunity and minimized current consumption.
