At Semtech, we are committed to helping you create successful LoRa®-based solutions using our hardware. To that end, we offer a PCB design review service. This program is intended to facilitate your development, to both ensure that your devices function properly and to help you get the full device RF performance.
To submit your PCB design for review, open a Support Request, making sure to attach a PDF or gerber file, and a schematic of your design. If possible, provide your schematics for a first review and submit your layout in a second step. Once your request has been received, our engineers will review your schematic and PCB design to help you avoid common design pitfalls. When the review is complete, we will provide you with a list of suggestions for improving your design.
On average, we can review your design and return it to you with our recommendations in 48 to 72 hours, depending upon the complexity of the design.
Nothing, provided your application is destined for production of more than 5,000 units per year. If this is the case, we will review your design free of charge. This will help ensure your devices will function properly in the field and help prevent unexpected failures later, such as failed regulatory tests.
The Device Review Program is open to customers creating PCB designs based on Semtech LoRa radio ICs.
