STMicroelectronics and Objenious Collaborate to Speed Connection of IoT Nodes to LoRa® Networks
LoRAWAN is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) based on LoRa technology that is opening up a world of possibilities to create networks of connected devices ideal to address a broad range of IoT applications. The benefits of LoRaespecially suit applications where nodes have limited power capability, can be difficult to access, and data transfers don't require high bandwidth. LoRa can, thus, target a wide spectrum of applications such as tracking, proactive maintenance, and many others. Industry analysts estimate there will be tens of billions of connected devices deployed in the world by 2020.
Objenious launched and operates the 1st LoRa network in
With its broad portfolio of general-purpose and secure microcontrollers (MCUs) and sensors, along with analog, power, mixed-signal, and connectivity technologies, ST offers all ingredients for making connected devices for any application. The company helps developers by providing tools and software libraries that aid the STM32 MCU-based embedded design as part of its freely available STM32 Open Development Environment (ODE). By integrating Objenious' network access software on top of the STM32 ODE, developing connected devices is even easier.
"The collaboration of
"Offering STM32-based LoRa-enabled kits that are already certified on the Objenious network is a valuable asset for developers as it hurdles a major challenge in their efforts to create new LoRa devices," said
STM32 Nucleo LoRa kits are now certified and available to developers through ST sales channels.
