Tools

In this toolbox for LoRa-based developers, you’ll find the tools you need to develop an end-to-end solution, including LoRa Basics™, Cloud Servers, and code samples. 

Semtech PCB Design Review Service

The Semtech PCB Design Review Service is available to developers to help ensure that your LoRa®-based hardware will function properly. This service is freely available to those developing applications that are destined for production of more than 5,000 units per year.

LoRa Basics

Semtech’s LoRa Basics™ offerings comprise a set of tools to help you quickly get up and running when developing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions featuring LoRa® radio modulation in conjunction with LoRaWAN® networks.

Sensor Application Conformance Test Bench

Semtech’s Sensor Application Conformance Test Bench is an all-in-one package designed to help you to create tests that can be used to verify the functionality of your LoRa®-based devices. Use the Conformance Test Bench to build tests for pre-certifying your sensors.

LoRa Basics Station

LoRa Basics Station is an implementation of a LoRa® packet forwarder, which can be remotely managed by a Configuration and Update Server (CUPS) at regular intervals to obtain configuration, system, and firmware updates.

LoRaMAC-Node™ 

Available in GitHub, LoRAMAC-Node provides an endpoint LoRaWAN® stack implementation, with examples of Class A, B, and C devices. Developed for five geographic regions, it supports firmware updates over-the-air (FUOTA) and drivers for SX1272/73, SX1276/77/78/79 and SX1261/2, as well as for other chips complying with the LoRaWAN specification.

LoRa Basics MAC

LoRa Basics MAC is a portable implementation of the LoRa Alliance™ LoRaWAN® specification in the C programming language. LoRa Basics MAC supports multiple regions, selectable at compile and/or run-time. Class A, Class B, and Class C devices are supported.

Cloud Services

Welcome to the LoRa Cloud™ Portal, the place to find value-added APIs that enable simple solutions for common tasks related to LoRaWAN® networks and LoRa®-based devices. Here, users can explore available services, sign up, and manage subscriptions.

LoRa Basics for end nodes

LoRa Modems are software libraries that enable communication between LoRa-based Internet of Things (IOT) devices and LoRa Cloud™ 
services, using the sub-GHz with regional parameters or 2.4GHz band for worldwide interoperability.
