Semtech Enables Sigfox 0G technology on SX126X LoRa Chipset

Semtech published application notes for SX126X, enabling new areas of Convergence for Sigfox & LoRa/ LoRaWAN. The announcement paves the way for enhanced connectivity, interoperability, and seamless integration of these two powerful technologies.

What does this mean to Developers, Devices & Solution Makers?

  1. Any IoT stakeholder (device, module, and solutions makers) who is using the SX1261 chipset can implement both Sigfox and LoRa in one SKU, optimising their investment by addressing a wider customer base with a single chipset.
  2. LoRa Edge and LoRa Connect portfolio now embed Sigfox in most LoRa-enabled products including
    • SX1261,
    • LCC68,
    • LR1110,
    • LR1120, and
    • LR1121

What does this mean to IoT customers?

The IoT Ecosystem, encompassing a vast array of applications such as metering, asset tracking, and logistics, can now benefit from a more robust and extensive network coverage and performance essential for the operation of IoT devices spread over a large geographical area, by combining the two key Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN).

Where can I find more information?

For developers, the SX126X RF API implementation example to use this chip with our open-sourced library is now available as open source on GitHub.

Complementing the actual LRxx version on GitHub is available here
