Last week it was Renesas and this week it’s Microchip. These world-leading MCU companies have released new products with Sequans’ Monarch technology inside. This is very exciting news for all the IoT developers out there who need ultra-reliable 5G cellular IoT connectivity for their IoT devices—for designing, prototyping, and building great IoT products with all the bells and whistles. Cellular IoT goes far beyond the range and capabilities of other LPWA technologies and is now widely recognized as the best connectivity choice for IoT devices. Why? Because it is reliable, affordable, and future proof. The combination of Sequans’ Monarch connectivity and the platforms of Microchip and Renesas creates amazing value for IoT developers who can use the platforms in a wide variety of applications, including smart building, smart home, smart metering, ehealth, and industrial IoT. Check these out:
Microchip AVR-IoT Cellular Mini Development Board
Based on Microchip’s AVR128DB48 8-bit microcontroller, this dev board is an ideal solution for developers to connect their IoT devices to an available 5G network. It comes pre-configured to send data from on-board light and temperature sensors to the cloud to track and monitor remotely in real time. The Microchip AVR128DB48 8-bit MCU family includes security protection and can be configured for major cloud service providers through Microchip’s provisioning tool.
By partnering with Microchip on the AVR-IoT board, we are simplifying and lowering the
costs of IoT device design.
Renesas Cellular-to-Cloud Development Kits, Including the PMod Expansion Board
Based on Renesas RA and RX 32-bit MCU families, the new Renesas kits are ready to connect to global cloud services providers, including AWS. These powerful development platforms can help IoT developers realize the full potential of AWS IoT services and accelerate solution development. Combined with the ubiquitous cellular connectivity, the solutions can be used for a wide variety of applications.
Packed with on-board sensors and the Cat-M1 module powered by Sequans Monarch technology, Renesas cloud kits are ideal for evaluating and deploying mobile cloud applications for wireless IoT systems.
