New Semtech LoRa-based Development Kit Enables Fast Prototyping of IoT Applications

LoRa Alliance Members Libelium and Loriot team up to deliver a LoRaWAN connected development environment

Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced the availability of a new LoRaWAN™-connected development kit from wireless hardware and software manufacturer Libelium and network services and software provider Loriot that should allow designers to speed up the development and testing of their Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Comprised of a gateway and ten sensor devices, featuring Semtech LoRa® technology, application software, and a connection to Loriot’s cloud-based LoRaWAN network, the new development kit is optimized for smart city, smart security, smart environment and smart agriculture applications. The kit is available for both North America (915 Mhz) and European (868 MHz) frequencies. 

“Developing IoT applications typically involves setting up a network and testing the various hardware components and software to ensure everything operates correctly,” said Javier Martínez, Libelium’s Vice President of Business Development & Sales. “With our kit, customers do not have to spend time configuring and testing a network, because we are able to provide them with a LoRaWAN network connection that has already been tested and set up to run seamlessly with the kit components and software.”    

“The collaboration between Libelium and Loriot to produce a comprehensive IoT development environment that is easy to use is an excellent example of how companies in the LoRa Alliance are working together to deliver complete solutions to IoT customers,” said Mike Wong, Vice President of Marketing and Applications for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Product Group. “Such collaboration also shows the value of the open LoRaWAN specification as it continues to bring hardware, software and networking companies together to drive innovative solutions for the IoT market.” 

Semtech, Libelium, and Loriot are members of the LoRa Alliance, a group of over 300 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, it is making LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low power, long-range IoT applications. To date, there are LoRaWAN public and private networks in more than 50 countries worldwide.
