Sequans Communications has introduced StreamliteLTE chipset targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) industry.
The company said the Colibri LTE Platform comprises Sequans’ latest baseband and RF chips (SQN3221 and SQN3241), an integrated network and application CPU platform running Sequans’ LTE protocol stack, an IMS client, and a software package for over-the-air device management and packet routing.
The chip vendor has optimized Colibri for the design of M2M and IoT modules and devices for numerous new applications.
“In developing Colibri, our goal was to pack it with great IoT features while making it so cost-effective that it would immediately solidify the business cases for adding LTE to numerous new M2M and IoT devices,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO.
Some of the IoT features of Colibri include low power consumption and compact form factor, which are functions of wafer-level packaging for both for the baseband and RF chips.
In addition, Colibri has flexibility as a basis for many different types of IoT and M2M modules for applications in home security, automotive, healthcare, wearables, utilities, and more.
Colibri’s integrated enhanced network and application CPU runs M2M and IoT applications, eliminating the need for — and the cost and complexity of — an external CPU.
