Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced a technology partnership with myDevices, an Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company that helps simplify the connected world, to build an interactive IoT demonstration platform using advanced visualization tools. The interactive platform will allow LoRa hardware manufacturers to showcase their modules and sensors remotely and in real time.
The platform is open to all hardware manufacturers with LoRa-enabled devices. The platform allows anyone in the world to not only view an online catalog of connected devices, but also control these objects to obtain real-time data feedback using a handheld mobile device such as a cell phone or tablet. For example, in a smart building demo, users can set triggers to control the lights, schedule the temperature settings of the thermostat, and set alerts when a door is left open.
myDevices will provide the interactive IoT platform equipped with a library of connected components and observable live data via widgets in an enhanced dashboard. The demonstration platform will eventually be displayed at Semtech headquarters in Camarillo, Calif. and on Semtech’s website.
“Semtech and myDevices share a similar goal in accelerating time-to-market for developers who invest time, energy, and creativity making IoT projects,” said Kevin Bromber, CEO of myDevices. “Our joint-collaboration provides an innovative solution for LoRa device manufactures to showcase their devices and present real use-cases across a variety of IoT applications in healthcare, connected home, smart buildings, water monitoring, etc.”
“Our LoRa wireless RF technology is being implemented in a wide range of unique IoT solutions, and a concise, interactive platform to demonstrate LoRa’s capability is valuable to our mutual customers,” said Alberto Guerra, Chief Marketing Officer of Semtech. “myDevices’ demonstration technology is an opportunity to showcase many of the LoRa solutions available and give interested parties a simplified look at the vast array of IoT solutions LoRa is enabling.”
