LoRa Transmits to Satellites for Global Coverage

Swarm has built Semtech LoRaWAN technology into its Low Earth Orbit satellites that communicate with Internet of Things devices in remote areas where terrestrial networks are not available, such as at sea or in the desert. Read more

CDR chip supports 50 Gbps data streams

As 5G, computing, video, gaming, and other applications push ever more data across networks, optical connections must keep up, lest they become the bottleneck. Today, optical networks using PAM4 modulation can push 50 Gbps per lane with higher speeds coming soon. A 400 Gbps Ethernet link, therefore, uses 8×50 Gbps lanes. The GN2255 clock-data recovery chip from Semtech cleans signals in 50 Gbps PAM4 data streams and integrates an optical laser driver. Read more

Why There’s Room for a Variety of Solutions in IoT Technology

As the hype around 5G technology continues to grow, the possibility of faster, more streamlined connectivity is driving conversations globally. But while 5G adoption has started, it continues to roll out slowly. To date, some have experienced the benefits 5G technology can bring, but most are patiently awaiting its arrival – and that’s assuming the technology fits the needs of their use case. 5G technology shows a breadth of new possibilities, however since it’s not a one size fits all technology, connectivity solutions from a variety of sources are still necessary. This article looks at the different connectivity options for deploying IoT networks, exploring the pros and cons of each. Read more

Smart Homes Experience Rise in Long-Range, Low-Power Technology

From home automation to smart kitchen appliances, voice assistant-enabled lighting and everything in between, consumer electronics companies are leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT) to connect everyday devices to the cloud, creating new experiences for consumers. Read more

Returning to live events in smart arenas

IoT technology and cutting edge connectivity can ease concerns and provide increased levels of safety at live event venues like arenas. Even with a vaccine in place, people are now more aware and sensitive to how easily germs can spread. By deploying smart sensors, arenas can easily track large volumes of people, air quality and facility hygiene in real-time. With the right technology in place, the live events industry can be more prepared to welcome back crowds, and consumers can find comfort in returning. Read more

The Key to Smarter, More Connected Neighborhoods

Covid-19 has forced many people to embrace working from home, and that trend is likely here to stay. According to a recent survey from The National Association for Business Economics, only about 1 in 10 companies expect all employees to return to their pre-pandemic work arrangements (NBC News). With more employees working from home, there’s also been an increased demand for smart and user-friendly home technology. Emerging as an optimal technology of choice are low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), thanks to the flexibility and control they deliver as well as their ability to play nicely with other solutions, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Three Misconceptions about 5G

In late 2019, IDC projected the number of 5G connections to grow to 1.01 billion by 2023, representing a compound annual growth rate of 217.2 percent compared to the 2019-2023 forecast period. While it’s still unknown how the pandemic will impact those numbers, one thing is exact: 5G will play a major role in shaping how we interact with and use connected technologies. Read more

Visualize This: The IoT Landscape and a Map for the Future from Semtech

With a plethora of networking options becoming more readily available for the Internet of Things (IoT), selecting the most effective IoT network for a business use case can be strenuous and lead to wasted time and resources. The fragmented IoT landscape consists of a variety of networking technologies. Leading technologies such as LoRa®/LoRaWAN®, NB-IoT, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (BLE), and 5G dominate the industry; however, no single IoT technology has ubiquitous coverage and pertains to all vertical IoT use cases.
