Becoming a Better Listener: The SX1302 Gateway Reference Design

Posted by Devesh Katta & Tim Cooper on Jan 25, 2021 7:57:29 AM

An increasingly important aspect of operating a LoRaWAN network in a shared ISM band is avoiding interference from existing devices operating in the same band, and minimizing the interference caused to other users of the spectrum. To help network operators achieve this, Semtech is introducing two new features to the SX1302 LoRa Corecell gateway reference design: Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) and Spectral Scan.

As cities develop, the number of traceable assets continues to grow. Similarly, as physical asset management becomes increasingly difficult, the need for more efficient methods is growing.

Semtech recently launched the new LoRa SX1303 baseband processor. Smaller and more efficient than the SX1301, the SX1303 processor also introduces a new feature: Fine Timestamp. This feature provides an efficient solution that enables network-centric geolocation asset tracking—without the need for a power-hungry and expensive GPS.
