An ultra-low power, multi-band platform designed for global geolocation and asset tracking applications, including Internet of Things (IoT) applications with direct satellite connectivity in supply chain management and logistics.
The platform is designed for international logistics companies with applications such as cross-regional asset tracking, inventory management, asset loss and theft prevention, and intercontinental logistics. Satellite communications also make it suitable for infrastructure monitoring, agriculture and environmental monitoring, which require deployment in remote areas.
The new SX1303 is the latest generation chip capable of simultaneously detecting and demodulating data from multiple nodes. This multichannel concentrator forms the basis of base stations in LoRaWAN® networks with a high density of subscriber devices. It provides network-centric geolocation of LoRa devices without enabling GPS hardware on each individual end node.
The operation of the device is based on precise timestamping capabilities, which provides accurate time of arrival information for each demodulated message and allows gateways to perform network-centric geolocation based on Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA).
