Semtech platform integrates GNSS, Wi-Fi scanning into an ultra-low power LoRa Transceiver

Semtech Corporation has announced LoRa Edge, a low power software defined LoRa-based platform that will enable a portfolio of applications for indoor and outdoor asset management, targeting industrial, building, home, agriculture, transportation, and logistics markets.

The first product from this portfolio is a geolocation solution for the development of Internet of Things (IoT) devices for asset management applications, featuring low power Wi-Fi and GNSS sniffing capabilities combined with LoRa Cloud geolocation and device management services to significantly 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 of IoT Wireless in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “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 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.

 The first LoRa Edge chipset targeted with geolocation (LR1110) is available today.
