The collaboration between Semtech’s LoRa EdgeTM platform and AWS IoT services unlocks new possibilities in supply chains and logistics asset tracking.

According to a survey conducted by Cleo, 85% of companies experience financial losses due to integration issues within their supply chains. Shockingly, 24% of those companies are losing $500k or more annually, while 14% report losses exceeding $1 million annually. This represents a 40% increase in companies facing such significant losses compared to the previous year.

Earlier this year, Amazon opened their Amazon Sidewalk network to the public. With Sidewalk signal already covering over 90% of the U.S. population leveraging LoRa’s long range technology, Amazon Sidewalk offers LoRa as one of its connectivity options for device makers to connect LPWAN IoT devices into the sidewalk, enabling a new class of devices with long range community coverage.  In areas of the U.S. where Sidewalk coverage is unavailable, or outside the U.S., devices using the new Oxit module can connect to any compatible LoRaWAN® network, enabling AWS customers to connect their device to any compatible AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN or integrated public network. In addition, LoRaWAN technology not only enables customers to connect to an alternative public LoRaWAN network, but also deploy a gateway utilizing LoRaWAN and create a network anywhere.

The recently announced LoRa Basics™ Modem v4 feature release includes a powerful new feature – relay. It allows customers to add battery-operated, easy-to-deploy relay nodes that act as network extenders. These relay nodes can be placed in remote locations or in areas where signal strength is weak due to extreme distances or circumstances, effectively extending the range of existing gateway(s) and networks using LoRaWAN® connectivity.

In today’s interconnected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) is ubiquitous. With this growth comes increasing exposure to security threats and exploitation attempts by malicious actors, threatening customers ranging from critical infrastructure operators to residential consumers who rely on IoT devices for safety and communications. The U.S. government’s recent Executive Order (EO), “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity,” responds to these risks in part by introducing cybersecurity labeling for consumer IoT products, offering vendors a clear and universal way to inform purchasers of their products of the security features and capabilities present in those products, as well as a living mechanism to quickly access information about any vulnerabilities affecting those products. By making security information more accessible to consumers, this program will lead to more informed consumer IoT purchasing decisions and improved security across a landscape we increasingly share.

Application of IoT and the Importance of ESD Protection

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical devices embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet. It shares the data with a Cloud server or a gateway to analyze and take corresponding actions (Figure 1). One noteworthy application of IoT is in agriculture. The amount and time of water irrigation are decided based on IoT sensors that gather information on soil moisture content, nutrients, fertilizer amount, and weather information—helping farmers make smart decisions to prevent wasting resources. IoT applications have also become very popular in manufacturing and industrial automation, from factory floors to department stores, tracking machine performance, measuring product quality, and asset tracking to real-time location systems. In smart home automation, IoT-based systems have made our homes safer and easily maintainable.

As one of the seven core industries of digital economy in China, the Internet of Things (IoT) has experienced a remarkable growth trajectory over the past few years. The "14th Five-Year Plan for Development of Digital Economy" proposes to improve the coverage level of the IoT in industrial manufacturing, emergency management and other fields, and enhance the collaboration between fixed networks and mobile networks, as well as the combination of wideband and narrowband networks for IoT. The Three-Year Action Plan of New Infrastructure Construction of Internet of Things (2021-2023) also proposes to accelerate new infrastructure construction to enable comprehensively sensing, ubiquitously connected, safe and reliable IoT. Professional IoT networking solutions will help improve sensor connectivity, efficiency, and reliability, thus helping enterprises achieve efficient management.

Since the successful launch of the BlueRiver ASIC for Pro AV in December 2019, Semtech has continued to add new features and functionality to both the ASIC firmware and the Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) API that’s at the heart of all SDVoE-based systems. This has culminated with the firmware version 2.0 release in February 2023, which enables the full potential of the platform. So, what’s Pro AV 2.0 and what does that mean with respect to Semtech’s Pro AV ASIC product lines?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of sensors and devices connected to the Internet to share and exchange data and instructions with a local or Cloud gateway/server (Figure 1). IoT sensors are a vital element of the IoT ecosystem, and increasingly they are using wireless technologies to service and connect all types of use cases and location-specific constraints. These sensors collect real-time data and share it with the gateway to forward to a Cloud-based application for processing, enable better decision-making at the ‘edge,’ or automate processes. Wireless communication protocols such as LoRaWAN®, cellular, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi help transmit the data.

The Importance of Keyboard ESD Protection

Since the dawn of computers, the keyboard has been the primary communication mechanism between human and machines. Over the years, many technologies and interfaces have changed, but the keyboard has barely changed in both form and function. Recently, I bought an exclusive wireless keyboard. Initially, it communicated with the computer via Bluetooth without any issues. However, after a month or so, it suddenly stopped. When I opened the internal circuit, I was surprised that the keys had no electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection. Any electronic device's keypad, side keys or push buttons are vulnerable to ESD due to constant human interaction with them. Adding ESD protection devices in a keyboard/keypad/side keys can avoid disastrous situations such as the failure of my keyboard. Let us discuss ESD in general and how we can protect our electronic devices from it.
