Semtech Releases LoRa Edge for IoT Application Deployment

By Ken Briodagh February 25, 2020

Semtech Corporation, a supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced LoRa Edge, which the company says was designed to be a versatile and low-power, Software-Defined, LoRa-based platform for asset management.

The first product from this new portfolio reportedly is a geolocation solution that features low power Wi-Fi and GNSS sniffing capabilities combined with LoRa Cloud geolocation and device management services that the company said will reduce the cost and complexity of locating and monitoring IoT assets.

“Semtech continually delivers Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that simplify and accelerate the development of LPWAN applications,” said Pedro Pachuca, Director, IoT Wireless, Wireless and Sensing Products Group, Semtech. “LoRa Edge and LoRa Cloud geolocation services enable customers to develop ultra-low power applications for a variety of industries and will expand the mass adoption of LoRa in the IoT ecosystem.”

The LoRa Edge geolocation platform reportedly will enable solution providers to leverage the localization capabilities of LoRa in addition to 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.

By removing the need for incremental GNSS and Wi-Fi components, LoRa Edge reduces the bill of material (BOM) costs of devices and significantly reduces design and procurement complexity. The first LoRa Edge chipset targeted with geolocation (LR1110) is available today and more products from this portfolio will be released in the first half of 2020, the company said.
