CAMARILLO, Calif., April 6, 2017 â€“ Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced its updated portfolio of circuit protection solutions suitable for protecting Internet of Thingsâ€™ (IoT) gateways and end nodes from threats induced by electrostatic discharge (ESD) events.
IoT technologies are rapidly proliferating as enterprises, consumers and government agencies begin to implement â€œsmartâ€ infrastructure into day-to-day processes. At the heart of this emerging trend is Semtech’s industry-leading LoRa® Technology.
Semtech’s LoRa wireless RF technology is enabling IoT gateways and end nodes for novel and compelling IoT applications and use cases. The LoRa-based gateways and end-nodes within this infrastructure typically operate in demanding industrial environments and are surrounded by a rich array of data ports and other interfaces that benefit from Semtech’s high-performance ESD protection platforms. Semtech’s RClamp protection platform provides best-in-class protection performance to safeguard these data interfaces from ESD and overvoltage threats. The RClamp platform features industry-leading low clamping voltage and ultra-low capacitance for safeguarding sensitive data transceivers while also maintaining robust signal integrity.
â€Semtech’s protection solutions provide designers with tools to significantly enhance the robustness of IoT platforms,â€ said Rick Hansen, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Semtech’s Protection Products Group. â€œOur industry-leading circuit protection devices are ideal solutions for providing protection to safeguard IoT gateways and end nodes.â€
Key Features of the Circuit Protection Platform for LoRa Gateways and End Nodes
– Low capacitance for minimal signal attenuation
– Low clamping and operating voltages for optimum protection of the USB ASIC
– Low leakage current for minimal power consumption
– High ESD current capacity
– Small package size through the use of Semtech’s proprietary Z-Pakâ„¢ process
