ABI Insight Report: Sequans, Microchip and NXP Smooth Developers’ Pathway to Massive Connectivity
July 9, 2020

In this report by Jamie Moss of ABI Research, the strategy behind Sequans’ establishment of partnerships with leading MCU providers, NXP and Microchip, is analyzed.  Sequans and its MCU partners are combining their respective technologies to help developers with designing IoT devices that need both LTE connectivity (4G and 5G) and an integrated MCU. Sequans and its MCU partners aim to make it easy and cost-effective to develop IoT devices for as many types of end-use markets as possible using their best-in-class joint solutions.

In early 2020, Sequans entered strategic collaborations with microcontroller companies NXP and Microchip, whereby Sequans’ own Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT chip would be combined with leading MCUs from these two leading MCU companies. The value of the joint solution targets directly the need of IoT device makers for a total solution, translating to reliability, utility, and faster time to market.

Sequans’ ultra lower power consuming Monarch 2 chip on which the connected MCU solutions are based, combines LTE-M, NB-IoT (NB1/NB2), an embedded secure element, an embedded SIM, and Sequans’ proprietary IoT-Findit indoor and outdoor location engine.
