Semtech’s LoRa Edge analyzes GNSS satellites as well as Wi-Fi SSIDs and distributes processing between IoT devices and the LoRa Cloud™ to determine location. The cloud-based solver drastically reduces power consumption and increases battery life. Exeger’s Powerfoyle is particularly flexible and durable and can be integrated seamlessly into any electronic device. Solar cell technology converts all forms of light to charge and power devices with clean, endless energy.

“Combining the benefits of Powerfoyle with the ultra-low-power capabilities of Semtech’s LoRa® devices will provide IoT applications with extended, even unlimited battery life,” said Dr. Oscar Hemberg, Director of Product Integration at Exeger. “Together, we are moving closer to energy independence through more sustainable products powered by clean, inexhaustible energy.”

Powerfoyle’s patented material integrates into IoT sensors with Semtech’s LoRa Edge chip-to-cloud platform with the goal of creating a new standard for eco-friendly platforms for the IoT industry. The combination of the two technologies is expected to spur a world of new solar-powered tracking applications for geolocation use cases, including indoor and outdoor asset tracking, global supply chain logistics, agriculture , smart utilities and smart cities.

“LoRa devices enable smart IoT applications that help solve some of the biggest challenges facing our planet,” said Marc Pegulu, vice president and general manager of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “The collaboration between Semtech and Exeger will enable manufacturers to develop IoT devices leveraging new energy harvesting technology for a smarter and more sustainable future.

New IoT asset trackers will be showcased at EdgeTech+ 2022, November 16-18, 2022, Yokahama, Japan at the LoRa Pavilion, Booth A-H04. Register to watch the show here.
