According to report,Vancouver, Canada, June 6, 2018
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), a leader in embedded solutions and a LoRa Alliance™ member, announced it has collaborated with Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC) on a compact, two-chip LoRaWAN™-based module deployed by Onethinx.
The highly-integrated Onethinx module is ideal for smart city applications that integrate multiple sensors and are in harsh radio environments. Using Cypress’ PSoC® 6 MCU hardware-based Secure Element functionality and Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology), the solution enables a multi-layer security architecture that isolates trust anchors for highly protected device-to-cloud connectivity. In addition, the PSoC 6 MCU’s integrated Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) connectivity provides a simple, low-power, out-of-band control channel. The PSoC 6 device is the lowest power consumption, the function is the most flexible Arm ® architecture ® - M dual-core MCU, its architecture is as low as 22-μA/MHz active power for the Cortex-M4 core.The device is very suitable for Semtech latest LoRa radio chip series, compared with the previous generation device, the device on the receiving mode can save 50% of the power, and can provide 20% longer power range.
Security is a major concern for many smart city applications.The Onethinx module utilizes the integrated security component function in PSoC 6 MCU to provide each LoRaWAN based device with a secret identity to safely boot, board and transmit data to the cloud application.With its mutual authentication function, LoRa device based on PSoC 6 MCU can also receive verified wireless firmware updates.The iot security provider and Bosch group member ESCRYPT provides key configuration and management services to provide a complete end-to-end security LoRaWAN solution.The module provided by sypras partner Onethinx connects to Bosch Sensortec's cross domain development suite (XDK) of MEMS sensors, as well as ESCRYPT supply systems for secure connections.
The point of the Cypress manager
“With its long range and low power capabilities in a compact footprint, Semtech’s LoRa Technology is ideal for vertical applications,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Combining LoRa Technology with Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCU in a purpose-built IoT module will accelerate the delivery of leading-edge IoT solutions for smarter cities and a smarter planet.”
“Devices for LoRaWAN networks need to be secure to protect the data they generate and process,” said Jack Ogawa, senior director of marketing for the MCU business unit at Cypress. “We’re excited to work with LoRaWAN ecosystem members to offer developers the unique combination of secure PSoC 6 MCUs and Semtech’s new lower power, longer range LoRa Technology to address smart city applications.”
Jotrin Electronic Engineer, Ben, believes that the cooperation between Cypress and Semtech ，that will really bring about a huge change in the industry. This cooperation will be a good integration of the two parties' high-quality resources.That will improve industrial efficiency. It will speed up their overall layout in IoT. This is a very effective cooperation. Jotrin Electronics looking forward to the surprise that they will bring to us in the next step. We hope they will develop better products.
