Semtech LoRa RF Used in Wireless Module From Murata

Semtech Corporation, supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced that its LoRa RF wireless technology has been integrated into a compact module from Murata, manufacturer of electronic components, modules and devices, for use in a wide range of IoT and M2M applications.

The module, which is scheduled to be available in October, will support a wide range of sensors for IoT applications, among them smart meters, wearables and tracking devices. It can operate within a wide range of temperatures; its memory supports many different applications. Its flexible data rate allows a long battery life and optimizes long-range communication.
The module, which comes with an integrated STMicroelectronics STM32L0 series ARM Cortex M0+ 32bit microcontroller, is aimed at easing integration with a variety of sensors. Semtech’s SX1276 low power, long-range transceiver is included in the module. Semtech, Murata and STMicroelectronics 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, the LoRa Alliance is helping make LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low power, long-range IoT applications. Currently there are LoRaWAN public and private networks in more than 50 countries worldwide.
