Complementary Abilities


In March 2020, connectivity semiconductor manufacturer Sequans announced strategic collaborations with the Microcontroller Unit (MCU) manufacturers Microchip and NXP. NXP will combine it’s LPC5500 series of MCUs with Sequans’ Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M/NB-IoT communications modules, which are based on Sequans’ own Monarch Cellular IoT (C-IoT) chipsets. Meanwhile, Microchip and Sequans will co-launch a development kit in the third quarter of 2020 that will pair both companies’ semiconductor products, complementing each other’s abilities and making it easier for IoT application developers to design devices that use them in combination. Each collaboration is a mutual promotion strategy to improve the sales of both sets of partners’ products.

Developers Have Acute Needs


Sequans aims to maximize the ease of development, and therefore the speed of prototyping for IoT devices, and wishes to do so horizontally for application across as many end-use markets as possible. The faster devices can be design…
