    Free educational modules simplify and accelerate the development of
    LoRa
    ®-based IoT applications

    CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semtech
    Corporation
    (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance
    analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has
    announced the open registration of the LoRaWAN Academy™ for everyone,
    from large enterprises to individual developers. The LoRaWAN Academy
    provides comprehensive, free educational modules for students,
    engineers, developers, and enterprises to develop Internet of Things
    (IoT) applications using LoRa®-based technologies.

    “Developers are the most important part of any modern technology
    platform, and the LoRaWAN Academy is there to help them get up to speed
    on one of the fastest growing IoT-enabling technologies out there today,
    Semtech’s LoRa
    devices and wireless radio frequency technology
    (LoRa Technology).
    The LoRaWAN Academy will enable developers to get their LoRa-based
    solutions to market faster as well as simplify development,” said Steven
    Hegenderfer, Senior Director of the Developer Ecosystem in Semtech’s
    Wireless Sensing and Products Group. “We are working with the
    LoRaWAN®-based ecosystem to develop and drive material that is
    beneficial to the community. Providing completely free modules focused
    on building LoRa-based applications gives students, engineers,
    developers, and enterprises the jump-start they need to build robust,
    innovative IoT applications.”

    The LoRaWAN Academy was first launched in late 2017 and targeted to
    universities. Since its initial inception, several universities from
    around the world implemented LoRaWAN Academy curriculum to prepare
    students for the IoT job market by training their students on developing
    LoRa-based solutions and the open LoRaWAN™ protocol. The
    program will now be available to anyone who is interested in building
    LoRa-based applications. The LoRaWAN Academy includes 10 modules of
    self-paced online classes that includes video lectures, supplemental
    reading materials and hands-on assignments.

    “LoRa Technology is a leading technology and recognized as the de facto
    platform for developing IoT applications,” said Dr. S.A. Pasupathy,
    Head, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of
    Kumaraguru College of Technology (KCT). “With the LoRaWAN Academy
    available for anyone and free, this is a great opportunity for
    participants to learn and realize the return of investment of LoRa as
    well as having ability to accelerate their applications to the market
    and their career growth.”
