在积极承担环境保护责任的同时，我们还对自己能以全球公民的身份承担社会责任感到自豪。 我们在当地的各个办事处都参与各类慈善事业、活动和倡议，积极为所在社区提供大力支持。 我们不断寻求参与社区活动和支持当地重要倡议的机会。 在全球范围内，Semtech 积极寻找和追求的产品与技术不仅有助于商业选择，还可以对全世界产生积极影响。
In 2016, Semtech was named Business of the Year at the 49th Annual City of Camarillo Community Awards. This recognition by the City of Camarillo was for Semtech’s exemplary community contributions.
那一年，Semtech 承诺在社区发挥更大作用，其中两个帮扶对象是当地组织 Fox Canyon Aquifer 和 Dignity Health’s St. John’s Hospital 医院：
Fox Canyon Aquifer
Using its award-winning LoRa® devices and LoRaWAN® protocol that enables connected Internet of Things (IoT) applications, Semtech and several partner companies presented a proposal to automatically track groundwater pumping data from the Fox Canyon Aquifer. This streamlined process should both reduce costs associated with manual data tracking and make groundwater conservation processes more efficient.
Dignity Health’s St. John’s Hospital
Semtech 再次使用 LoRa 设备和 LoRaWAN 协议，在 Dignity Health’s St. John’s Hospital 创建了基于 LoRa 设备的网络。 此网络可以监控病床，避免患者摔伤。
Semtech is a global company, and as such we develop products and platforms that solve global problems and impact the world in a positive way. Many of Semtech’s products and technology are doing just that, today, in real-world applications. One example is our Protection Product Group’s Circuit Protection Products. These products, such as our Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) protection solutions, safeguard electronics systems against damage or latch-up caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD), lightning (surge) and other destructive voltage transients, keeping key systems on-line when they are needed most. They are also being used in applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, helping to keep our roads and drivers safer than ever before.
Semtech 不断寻求参与社区活动以及成为优秀社会公民的机会。 例如，我们实施了综合性实习计划。 通过与全国各地各所提供专业技术学科的大学建立教职合作关系，Semtech 已能够在全国各地找到合格的学生和应届毕业生，并为他们提供机会，让他们在工程、商业和信息技术等各个领域积累实践经验。
实习生（均享受报酬）由高级职员分配项目和提供指导。 在有经验的导师指导下解决问题和培养适用技能的这种机会非常宝贵，通常有助于实习生在 Semtech 找到全职工作。 这种方式已帮助 Semtech 找到并留住关键人才和未来贡献者，并减少寻找和聘用关键人员的挑战。
Another way that Semtech engages the community is through sponsorships of local events. Semtech has been a technology sponsor of many local events, such as the Startup Weekend Ventura County. This event, which is organized by Dignity Health’s St. John’s Hospital and Camarillo Chamber of Commerce, is focused on providing solutions to healthcare and agricultural challenges specific to the region, as well as stimulating the area’s startup community.
Semtech participated as the official technology sponsor in both 2016 and 2017, providing training on its LoRa-based starter kit featuring its LoRa devices and LoRaWAN protocol for IoT applications, and LinkCharge® wireless charging systems for all interested participants.
Qualified teams were picked out of dozens of applicants to participate in the hack-a-thon-style event, with winning projects chosen from three different categories: Healthcare, Agriculture and People’s Choice. Two LoRa-based applications, Vital Signs and Field Vitals, were rewarded prizes to further develop their applications.
Semtech 不仅参与当地活动、社区推广活动和慈善活动，其基于 LoRa 的设备还在全球得以采用。 Semtech 目前正在进行全球性的技术部署，以便将其技术推广到那些对环境和我们的日常生活有很大影响的应用领域，其中包括节能和减少浪费，以及人员和事务的安全保障。
例如，应用于农业时，可使用基于 LoRa 的设备监测牛群的健康和营养状况，还可以监测土壤的灌溉情况，让农作物更好地生长。 应用于资产跟踪时，相关解决方案可为各类应用（包括人员和资产管理、小型设备丢失、防盗以及增强宠物和儿童监控）带来优势。 应用于食品安全时，智能制冷监控可更有效、更可靠地监控从冰箱到餐桌的食品，有助于防止浪费和延长食品保质期。 应用于节能时，计量解决方案可以让消费者改变浪费能源的习惯，节约资金，减少能源使用总量。 应用于历史文物保护时，基于 LoRa 设备的低功耗功能可方便评估博物馆中影响艺术品保存状况的常见因素，如湿度、温度、光线和振动。
Semtech 致力于与社区积极合作，共同支持当地的慈善机构和非盈利计划。 Semtech 鼓励其每一个办事处采取有效方式为各自社区做出贡献。
Taking the lead, Semtech’s CEO, Mohan Maheswaran, is actively involved in hosting one of Semtech’s favorite charity events - an annual golf tournament held near the Semtech headquarters in Camarillo, CA. As a member of the Ventura county community for 60 years, Semtech wanted to find a way to give back and be a leader in creating a better tomorrow for those in the community. So every year, beginning in 2013, Semtech has hosted this event to benefit various local charities that support our community. In the most recent year, over $100,000 was raised just from this one event for two comprehensive non-profit social services agencies based in Ventura County, California: Interface Children & Family Services (Interface) and Kids & Families Together. Other charities that have benefitted from this annual event in previous years include: RaisingHOPE, Inc., Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County, Cancer Hope Foundation, and RAIN Communities, Inc.
