KeySight technologies has added Semtech Corporation’s LoRa devices and wireless RF technology to its Internet of Things test solutions portfolio.
Semtech’s LoRa Technology is a platform for low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) technologies, designed to send a small amount of data over long distances. It is especially suitable to climate monitoring sensors and applications that send data a few times per hour, such as early warning systems, pollution control and climate change monitoring applications. Keysight Technologies chose Semtech’s LoRa technology because of its place in the IoT sensors market:
“IoT presents a significant opportunity in the context of Keysight’s mission to enable a connected and secure world,” Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Wireless Devices and Operators business at Keysight Technologies, said in a press release. “LoRa is one of the key LPWAN technologies that Keysight is pursuing to address industry-specific IoT needs. We are pleased to have this strategic collaboration with Semtech and deliver an industry leading solution to help our customers gain confidence in their LPWAN designs.”
LoRa Technology is used in Semtech chipsets. When product makers in the IoT space use the chipsets, they are integrated into LPWANs. Data is sent from the LPWAN to application servers through backhaul.
In particular, Keysight said that they will use LoRa Technology for test solutions for design validation and verification of IoT applications.
