Quantified Ag's LoRa-based sensors allow accurate analysis of a cow's
health, increasing efficiency

Semtech
Corporation
 (NASDAQ:SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance
analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms,
announced that Quantified
Ag
, a company specializing in Internet of Things (IoT) cattle
tracking and cattle health solutions, has implemented Semtech's LoRa®
devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology)

into its smart cattle tags for advanced health monitoring. Quantified
Ag's devices are implemented in feedlots in the U.S. and Australia.

"Semtech's LoRa Technology allows us to respond much faster to cattle
disease than conventional techniques," said Vishal Singh, CEO of
Quantified Ag. "Communications throughout the day from an individual
animal's smart ear tag minimize the delay from when the animal contracts
an illness to when it starts showing symptoms, which improves a cattle
producer's business model and increases productivity. We've seen
significant results in increased efficiency."

Quantified Ag's LoRa-based hardware collects data continuously – 24
hours a day, every day – allowing feedlot workers to detect and respond
to anomalies in a cow's behavior and vitals. Each sensor measures body
temperature and activity, and the data is sent to the Cloud for analysis
in real-time or stored for trend reports. Applications scan the data for
outliers such as a cow showing reduced mobility or elevated body
temperature, which could be signs of disease. Feedlot workers are then
notified of the anomaly, and can act quickly to prevent disease from
worsening or spreading.

"LoRa Technology and LoRaWAN™ connectivity go hand-in-hand with
agriculture with its long range, easy deployment and flexible
capabilities," said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT in Semtech's Wireless
and Sensing Products Group. "Semtech's LoRa Technology maximizes
efficiency and sustainability by providing a cutting-edge IoT solution
that improves results in cattle health detection. With IoT solutions,
like LoRa, we can work toward a smarter planet, while solving real-world
challenges today."
