Semtech Demonstrates LoRa® Technology Solution for IoT at ST Developers Conference

Semtech’s LoRa Wireless RF Technology enables IoT networks and applications worldwide

Camarillo, California - September 28, 2016 -

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, will showcase its LoRa® Wireless RF Technology for the Internet of Things (IoT) at STMicroelectronic’s ST Developers Conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center, kiosk 61, on Oct. 4. Semtech will demonstrate how its LoRa Technology for low power, wide area networks (LPWANs) enables solutions for the growing IoT industry, encompassing smart things, smart home, smart city, smart industry, other applications and their components.

Semtech’s LoRa Technology is a solution for LPWANs that has been deployed in over 50 countries to enable scalable adoption of IoT applications. LoRa offers long-range, strong signal connectivity, features geolocation capability, requires minimal infrastructure and operates on low power, allowing network operators, service providers and private enterprises to easily deploy LPWANs based on the LoRaWAN™ protocol across large city and rural areas or integrate into existing network infrastructure. LoRa Technology’s feature set allows IoT solution integrators to automate processes, such as asset tracking, infrastructure monitoring and metering, as well as access data that can be used to improve day-to-day activities, reduce waste and streamline operations.

“LoRa enables low-power, easily implementable and scalable LPWANs, as well as interoperability through its standardized LoRaWAN protocol,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of Wireless Products for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Product Group. “LoRa gives network operators, application developers, system integrators, sensor manufacturers, and end users in the IoT ecosystem the features needed to effectively capture the value of IoT with a flexible and open business model.”

Semtech and STMicroelectronics are members of the LoRa Alliance™, a group of nearly 400 companies committed to driving and enhancing the LoRaWAN specification to ensure interoperability and scalability of LPWANs and IoT applications. Through its work with member companies and IoT industry groups, the LoRa Alliance is making LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low-power, long-range IoT applications.

Key Features of LoRa RF Technology:

  • Long Range: A single LoRa base station enables deep penetration capability for dense urban environments and indoor coverage, while also providing the ability to connect to sensors more than 15-30 miles away in rural areas.
  • Low Power: The LoRaWAN protocol was developed specifically for low power and enables unprecedented battery lifetime of up to 20 years depending on the application.
  • Low Cost: LoRa reduces upfront infrastructure investments and operating costs, as well as end-node sensor costs.
  • Standardized: LoRaWAN ensures interoperability among applications, IoT solution providers and telecom operators to speed adoption and deployment.
