IoT has a big potential to transform business and industry structures by collecting and analyzing data in all aspects.

SMK has been supplying a variety of RF modules such as Bluetooth® modules. Lately, we are focusing on LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) network which is known as the standard for IoT communication.

This page explains LPWA and other RF communication modules.

What is LPWA? ※Low Power Wide Area (Network)

LPWA is a term that refers to low power consumption and wide range of communication networks.
It attracts attention as one of the communication standards for IoT.
It is especially suitable for wide area data collection and analysis which does not require continuous transmission; and is possible at low cost.

【Features】
Low power consumption(battery lifetime of several years)
Long distance communication(from several hundreds meters to several kilometers)
Low cost operation (inexpensive communication frequency fee)
Low data rate and low data volume communication
