Semtech Announces LoRaWAN® Integration Into Cranberry Analytics’ Smart Water Metering Solution

Panaji Municipal Corporation (PWD-PHED) to feature a LoRaWAN® network for water use management

CAMARILLO, Calif., May 19, 2022 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Cranberry Analytics, a water management company based in India, has chosen to integrate Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® standard into its ultrasonic meters for smart water metering. India’s Panaji Municipal Corporation awarded its smart water metering contract to Cranberry Analytics for use of its smart meters due to its reliable manual data capture and communication via LoRa modules.

“Semtech’s LoRa provides cost-effective sensors and strong signal propagation capabilities which are necessary in an urban setting for deep in-building or underground connectivity,” said Shishir Thakur, co-founder and CTO, Cranberry Analytics. “Considering all these factors, it became a clear decision that LoRa and LoRaWAN would be the best choice for reliable water metering.”

Cranberry Analytics’ smart water meters allow system administrators to collect meter readings and water consumption data on a daily basis, allowing for effective planning of water distribution as well as real-time anomaly detection and leakage analysis and mitigating water waste. According to Cranberry Analytics, in the project’s initial phase, 3,094 consumer’s mechanical water meters will be replaced by ultrasonic meters utilizing LoRa and LoRaWAN.

“LoRaWAN integration into the Cranberry Analytics water meters will allow for long range data transmission while reducing costs and keeping customer’s data secure. The system’s communication capabilities will allow meters to be diagnosed and updated without physical intervention,” said Marc Pégulu, vice president of IoT product marketing and strategy for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Overall, the collaboration with Cranberry Analytics is continuing to highlight Semtech’s commitment toward creating a sustainable and smarter planet through LoRa devices and LoRaWAN.”

Current Sense Resistor - WFC & WFCP Series

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Vishay

If you are working on a telecom, consumer or industrial design, current sense resistors can give you a great way to detect and convert current to voltage. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Clinton Stiffler from Vishay about the what, where and how of Vishay’s WFC and WFCP current sense resistors. They investigate how these current sense resistors are constructed, how the flip-chip design of these current sense resistors reduces TCR compared to other chip resistors, and how you can get started using a Vishay current sense resistor in your next design.
