Microchip Technology (MCHP) Launches LoRa Evaluation Kit

Microchip Technology Inc. MCHP, a leading provider of semiconductor products, recently launched the industry's first complete LoRa technology evaluation kit. This new kit will provide customers with the power to create a Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN). 

The new LoRa evaluation kit is designed to cater to the evolving needs of its customers. Using these kits developers can create a LoRaWAN network without any hassle.

The new kits will enable customers to create LPWAN either in Europe (DV164140-1 for the 868 MHz band) or in North America (DV164140-2 for the 915 MHz band). Each kit includes two Motes (LoRaWAN sensors) based on Microchip's RN2483 or RN2903 LoRa modules, a LoRaWAN gateway and a local LoRaWAN server application.

Each kit can serve as a building block for the development of a long-range LoRa network, where designers can expect a range of up to 10 miles and a battery life of 10 years using two AAA batteries. The LoRa technology uses extended range modulation which transmits excellent data robustness in a noisy environment and even works through physical obstructions.

Microchip is developing and introducing a wide range of innovative and proprietary products. The latest invention will reinforce the company’s product portfolio and boost its revenues. Microchip develops and manufacturers microcontrollers, memory and analog and interface products for embedded control systems, which are small, low-power computers designed to perform specific tasks. Striking features such as quality, performance, reliability, ease of use, pricing and diversity of products make Microchip one of the better-positioned companies in the semiconductor universe.

Microchip currently sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy). Some other stocks that look promising and are worth considering in the industry now include M/A-Com Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. MTSI, Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. MPWR and Silicon Laboratories Inc. SLAB. All three carry the same rank as Microchip.
