Low power IoT reference design to launch at embedded world
At this year's embedded world in Nuremberg, Germany, 27th February-1st March 2018, Kerlink will release its latest Low Power IoT Reference Design. The company's Low Power IoT Reference Design is a turnkey combination of electronics blueprint, performance benchmarks, recommended bill of material and best practices guidelines for designing antennas, batteries and connectors integration.
It also provides a benchmark device and test bed for directly testing and comparing prototypes, and simplifies and accelerates the design, development and production of devices based on LoRa technology, while speeding time to market and reducing development costs.
This new reference design is part of Kerlink’s strategy to help OEMs, electronics device makers, device designers and service providers launch new connected products for the IoT using LoRa technology. The company’s Advanced Services Business Unit is broadening Kerlink’s portfolio to offer value added solutions and services, on top of its existing IoT network infrastructure and operations offerings.
“Kerlink is one of the world’s largest suppliers of gateways, stations and other equipment for LoRaWAN IoT networks,” said Stéphane Dejean, Kerlink's Chief Marketing Officer. “These reference design leverage that expertise for LoRa technology device designers and OEMs that want to put the IoT to work for their companies and their customers quickly and simply.”
Tekelek, developer and manufacturer of telemetry products and solutions for gas-tank monitoring, and Maddalena, smart water metering company, have used an early version of the reference design to create new devices for customers.
“Both companies have reported significantly reduced time to market with their new LoRaWAN devices and lower design and prototyping costs, while achieving complete compliance with the latest state-of-the-art specifications,” Dejean said.
Kerlink is launching the new reference design at embedded world with Alpha-Omega Technology, German company that specialises in international IoT hardware sales and consulting with a focus on wireless sensor networks using the LoRaWAN protocol.
Kerlink will present its solutions and show demonstration during embedded world on the booth shared with Alpha Omega located 3A-240.
