Semtech and Connected Development Launch new LoRa®-Based IoT Development Board and Reference Design
New XCVR Development Board and Reference Design integrates LoRa® Sub-GHz Radio Transceiver
CAMARILLO, Calif. And Cary, NC, April 26, 2023 -- Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems and Cloud connectivity service provider, and esteemed engineering design services firm, Connected Development, today announced the launch of the new XCVR Development Board and Reference Design integrating the LoRa® Sub-GHz Radio Transceiver. Based on Semtech’s LoRa® SX126x Series, the Development Board and Reference Design simplifies the design process and reduces time-to-market for customers designing solutions in markets such as building management, agriculture, supply chain, logistics and industrial control.
Connected Development’s comprehensive layout and schematic files for the XCVR Development Board provide customers with convenient LoRa implementation into end-product designs. Software drivers are supplied with the design and are compatible with various microcontroller vendors including Nordic Semiconductor. The XCVR’s software examples include LoRa® Point to Point and LoRaWAN® (LoRaMAC-Node™ & LoRa Basics™ Modem) reference firmware to enable rapid software development.
“LoRa continues to be seen as the de facto wireless platform for IoT,” said Robert Comanescu, senior director of the IoT Chips Business at Semtech. “Semtech's LoRa chipsets connect sensors to the Cloud and enable real-time communication of data and analytics that can be utilized to enhance efficiency and productivity. With the XCVR’s small form factor, production ready hardware design, firmware and dedicated support resources available through Symmetry Electronics, Mouser and Connected Development, we believe this platform will be ideal for customers currently developing LoRa-enabled wireless designs or considering a future wireless product on their roadmap.”
“The collaborative effort between Connected Development and Semtech on the XCVR provides our customer base with the combined benefits of Semtech’s next-generation technology and Connected Development’s state-of-the-art engineering design,” says Gregor Bleimann, Connected Development’s vice president and general manager. “We are confident that implementing Semtech’s SX126x into the XCVR Development Board and Reference Design enhances functionality, product design, and furthers our wireless solutions. Customers will decrease their time-to-market with added confidence by leveraging this reference design for their products.”
The XCVR Development Board and Reference Design with SX126x LoRa® Sub-GHz Radio Transceiver is available exclusively at Mouser Electronics and Symmetry Electronics. For more information, please visit Connected Development.
