STMicroelectronics Launches Ultra-Low-Power Sigfox Monarch-Ready Solution for Industrial Asset Management, Enabling Seamless IoT Worldwide Connectivity
- Industry's first hardware- and software-certified reference design enabling Sigfox Monarch service, based on
ST's S2-LPsub-1GHz radio with STM32 MCU or BlueNRG SoC
- Ready-to-go solution for remote monitoring and asset-tracking devices featuring global inter-regional Sigfox geolocation capability
The S2-LPbased long-range and ultra-low-power connectivity extends ST portfolio for the industrial IoT market
ST's solution lets users create region-independent smart objects that connect automatically to the local Sigfox network anywhere in the world, empowering inter-regional mobility, geolocation, and asset tracking without relying on more expensive GPS or GNSS positioning devices. These could include smart-baggage products that aid tracking in airports or transport hubs, or innovations for supply-chain management and air or rail transportation in the industrial asset-management market, such as smart pallets. Regional independence also allows makers of connected smart objects such as consumer or commercial IoT devices to standardize products for multiple export markets, simplifying manufacturing and logistics.
"The widespread worldwidecoverage of the Sigfox network represents a unique Global connectivity service for remote monitoring and industrial asset management. This ready-to-go offering for Sigfox Monarch networking perfectly complements the existing ST IoT ecosystem providing the fastest go-to-market solution for IoT connectivity," said
ST is providing a complete Software Development Kit (SDK) for Sigfox Monarch networking, supported by development kits, reference designs, and tools that accelerate project completion.
"The launch of this Monarch solution demonstrates that we are building a solid business collaboration with ST, aiming to expand further the vast possibilities of the IoT market," said Raouti Chehih, Chief Adoption Officer at Sigfox. "
The fully certified Sigfox Monarch solution is based on ST's
The SDK runs on the STM32 MCU family and benefits from its vast portfolio availability, including both low-power and higher-performance product families. For instance, for processing demanding applications, the ARM® Cortex®-M4 based devices enable highly efficient data pre-processing and localized AI, thus reducing network traffic requirements.
To jump-start new product development,
The SDK also supports a convenient dual-radio reference solution powered by the
The design can easily be enhanced with the STSAFE secure element for robust cyber-protection and with ST's comprehensive industrial portfolio of motion and environmental MEMS sensors.
The availability of a Sigfox Monarch certified solution for LPWAN connectivity along with the ST comprehensive IoT and industrial portfolio makes ST the one-stop shop for creating innovative devices for real-time and always-connected remote monitoring and asset-tracking applications.
