Semtech’s Design Partner Program for LoRa® Technology Triples in Membership

Since its inception in September 2018, program membership has grown to 26 partner companies offering a wide range of design services

CAMARILLO, Calif., April 17, 2019 ― Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced the strong growth of its Design Partner Program. The program, which accelerates Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to market by directly connecting customers with firms specializing in LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology), has grown to include 26 partner companies since its inception in September 2018.

“The Design Partner Program enables customers, system integrators, and developers looking to create an innovative LoRa-based solution to work directly with experienced firms,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “The goal of this project is to simplify deployment and accelerate time-to-market for new solutions. As the program grows, prospective developers now have a larger selection and variety of services available. Given the wider range of choices, customers can find a Design Partner that better suits their development needs. With Design Partner expertise we believe customers can more quickly and successfully develop their applications.”

To-date, the Design Partner Program has more than tripled in membership, and currently includes companies from North and South America, Europe and Asia. Partner companies offer a wide range of products and services, including hardware design and layout, digital and analog design, embedded firmware, application code, security, and Cloud integration. Customers interested in contracting a Design Partner’s services may do so by reaching out to the company directly. As more companies are added monthly, companies wishing to be added to the Design Partner Program may submit an inquiry to Semtech for consideration.
