New asset tracking device utilizes Semtech’s LoRa Edge platform to reduce power consumption for indoor/outdoor asset management

Semtech Corporation tells us that Digital Matter, a supplier of GPS and Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and device management software, has utilized Semtech’s LoRa Edge asset management platform to develop the Yabby Edge, a battery-powered tracking device for indoor/outdoor asset management. The LoRa Edge (LR1110) platform is claimed to reduce the cost and complexity of IoT asset management in key applications such as pallet and warehouse equipment tracking, inventory and shipment management, trolley, cart and container tracking and medical equipment management.

 “Battery life, device size and cost are the three biggest factors we see when deploying asset management solutions, particularly for low cost assets such as pallets,” Ken Everett, CEO and Founder, Digital Matter told IncisorTV. “By utilizing Semtech’s latest multi-technology geolocation solution, The Yabby Edge ticks all three boxes with low power consumption and incredible battery life, even at more aggressive tracking parameters, compact, concealable and ultra-rugged housing, and manufactured at a price point that enables large-scale deployments.”

 The Yabby Edge features Cloud-based location calculations, which Semtech says reduces power consumption and extends battery life for up to 12 years. Location data can be forwarded to any customer platform or system for integration and device settings can be configured to fit any tracking application.

“Semtech’s LoRa Edge platform, with its multi-technology hardware, its LoRa Basics Modem-E native modem software operating on the LoRaWAN protocol, and its LoRa Cloud geolocation and device and application services, simplify and accelerate the development of IoT solutions,” said Sree Durbha, Director of Product Management in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Digital Matter’s new solution will help customers deploy ultra-low power and cost effective solutions in a variety of industry verticals and should dramatically increase the rate of adoption of LoRa® in the IoT ecosystem.”

 The Yabby Edge will apparently be available in 868MHz and 902-928MHz frequencies of the LoRaWAN protocol in April 2021.
