Smart Environment


Monitoring, measurement, data collection, and analysis leading to actionable insights are among the core benefits of the 物联网 (IoT), 无论行业如何. 说到环境问题, IoT connectivity enables highly scalable and robust networks of “always-on” sensors.

可能在偏远地区或地形复杂的地方, these sensor networks can drive significant impact to combat climate change and create a more sustainable environment, such as:

  • 能源、水、资源节约得到加强
  • 森林砍伐的预防
  • 生态系统保护
  • 保护濒危物种和防止偷猎
  • Environmental information about water, air or other pollution that impact health
  • 保护生物多样性

The long range, low power and long battery life of Semtech's LoRa® wireless radio frequency platform offers an ideal solution for environmental IoT monitoring applications that depend on battery-powered sensors. 使用未经授权的频谱, sensors featuring LoRa ICs seamlessly communicate over indoor or outdoor public, 专用或混合LoRaWAN®网络. 网络是蓝牙、Wi-Fi和蜂窝网络的补充.

IoT solutions enabled by Semtech’s LoRa ICs are used globally for real-time detection and measurement of environmental indicators, 在潜在问题升级前发现它们. Semtech also offers electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection solutions, ideal for 电路保护 in low power wide area network infrastructure.
