By Ken Briodagh March 04, 2020

According to a recent release, Sequans Communications and NXP Semiconductors are collaborating to bring LTE for IoT connectivity to NXP’s microcontroller (MCU) ecosystem. The companies reportedly are combining NXP’s LPC5500 series microcontroller with Sequans’ Monarch GM01Q and NB01Q modules in order to give IoT device makers a development platform that speeds time to market for connected IoT devices.

The modules support 17 LTE bands for worldwide connectivity and include an LTE-optimized transceiver and an RF front end.

The partners said that the NXP LPC5500 series development board was designed to provide a platform for product evaluation or prototyping. It is based on the Arm Cortex-M33 architecture and includes an onboard debug probe, audio subsystem, accelerometer and several options for add-on boards for networking, sensors, displays, and other interfaces.
