Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced it will be participating in the 4th LoRa™ Alliance All Members meeting in Santa Clara April 4-6. The Alliance events will include several activities for non-members, including an open house where participants are expected to get a thorough overview of LoRaWAN™-based low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), live Internet of Things (IoT) product demonstrations from members of the LoRa Alliance ecosystem (LoRaWAN Open Marketplace), a LoRaWAN 101 hands-on training from Microchip, and the opportunity to compete for prizes in a hackathon-style competition sponsored by ARM, MultiTech and the Things Network. The open event is sponsored by Cisco and takes place on April 6 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. The hackathon event on April 5 is free for participants who sign up for the open house.
LoRaWAN 101, sponsored by Microchip, will cover how LoRaWAN has become a ubiquitous standard for secure, carrier grade LPWANs and how it is helping connect the IoT. Attendees will also get to participate in a hands-on workshop to apply what they learn using LoRa-based platforms from Microchip.
LoRaWAN Open Marketplace is where members from the LoRa Alliance ecosystem will provide live demonstrations of their IoT/M2M solutions, which range from modems, modules and sensors, to base stations, network servers and application servers.
LoRa Hackathon (April 5) hosted by ARM, MultiTech, The Things Network and Semtech, will provide all the tools and training users need to create a long range IoT application. Participants will have a chance to win mDot modules, Conduit gateways, development boards and much more.
