Semtech Corp., supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced Wednesday that AcSiP, a designer, manufacturer and solutions provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has expanded its current IoT System-in-Package (SiP) solutions to leverage Semtech’s LoRa wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and the open LoRaWAN standard.
Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless RF technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 60 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.
AcSiP focus on developing “Advanced Communication System in Package” technologies and services. Since 2009, the company provides its wireless connectivity solutions that include Bluetooth, NFC, Zigbee, WiFi, GPS, 2G, 4G, and the LoRaWAN open protocol.
AcSiP adopted GPS with LoRa Technology in both variants of its SiP modules, S76G and S78G, which have gained significant customer traction. Providing long-range, low-power and easy to deploy capabilities, the AcSIP modules are ideal for IoT tracking solutions used to monitor assets including cargo and vehicles.
“AcSiP began developing LoRa-based products three-years ago and has successfully developed 11 SiP modules to use Semtech’s LoRa Technology,” said Sam Hsu, Vice President at AcSiP. “We received a significant level of interest with our LoRa-based demonstrations at the LoRa Alliance’s™ 9th All Members Meeting in Suzhou China and decided to continue to develop all LoRa-based products and adopt the open LoRaWAN protocol.”
“AcSiP recognized the benefits and opportunities of expanding its IoT SiP products to utilize Semtech’s LoRa Technology, as more supply chain and asset management companies are looking for long-range, low-power capabilities and solutions for their IoT applications,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT at Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology has become the technology of choice for building IoT applications and AcSiP should play an important role in making our world a smarter planet.”
