On January 3 IoT Breakthrough Awards announced the winners of their 2019 awards program that recognizes the best in IoT technologies and solutions from around the world. Monarch SiP, which is a joint solution of Sequans and Skyworks Solutions, Inc., was named the winner in the IoT Component category: IoT Semiconductor Product of the Year. IoT Breakthrough’s press release announcing the winners can be found here.
Monarch SiP (SQN66430 or SKY66430) combines Sequans’ industry-leading Monarch LTE-M/NB-IoT chip platform with Skyworks’ LTE universal RF front end module, resulting in the world’s smallest, thinnest, and most highly-integrated LTE connectivity solution for the design of IoT devices.
“Through our collaboration with Skyworks, we have created an LTE for IoT solution that is one of the most critically important in the world today,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “The ultra- compact and operator-certified Monarch SiP with global Single-SKU capability significantly shortens development time for IoT devices and is an ideal solution for space-constrained IoT devices such as sensors, trackers, and wearables.”
