Semtech LoRa RF Technology for IoT Used in Compact Wireless Module from Murata

CAMARILLO, CA --- Semtech Corporation announces that its LoRa wireless RF technology is integrated into a low cost, compact module from Murata, a leading manufacturer of electronic components, modules and devices, for use in a wide variety of Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.

The compact LoRaWAN module, which is scheduled to begin production in October, is expected to support a wide range of sensors for IoT applications, including smart meters, wearables and tracking devices. It is able to operate within a wide range of temperatures; its memory is capable of supporting a range of applications; and its flexible data rate increases battery life and optimizes long-range communication.

This compact module, integrated with a STMicroelectronics STM32L0 series ARM Cortex M0+ 32bit microcontroller, is aimed to help ease integration into a variety of sensors. Semtech’s SX1276 low power, long-range transceiver is also included in the module to provide ultra-long range spread spectrum communication, high interference immunity and minimized current consumption.
