LoRa-Enabled Nano-Tag Is Disposable

Semtech’s nano-tag reference design focuses on a disposable, ultrathin and low-cost tag that can be integrated into disposable systems or attached to assets to communicate a specific trigger of an event. The LoRa-based nano-tag can be deployed across numerous Internet of Things (IoT) verticals that utilize the event data to enable smarter decision making.

 

The tag is equipped with an ultra-thin printed battery and integrates into products or systems that send messages to the Cloud when a simple event is detected. The LoRa-enabled reference design will work with existing LoRaWAN networks and enable the proliferation of completely new types of IoT applications, requiring real-time, reliable feedback including logistics/shipping applications, healthcare and pharmaceutical applications, asset tracking applications, and general-purpose compliance applications.
