Monarch LTE Platform
A single-chip LTE Cat M1 and M2 solution designed specifically for narrowband IoT applications, including sensors, wearables and other low-data, low-power M2M and IoT devices. Complies with the ultra-low-power and reduced complexity feature requirements of the 3GPP release 13 LTE Advanced Pro standard, defining narrowband, low-data-rate LTE technology for machine type communications (MTC).
Achieves a very high level of integration whereby baseband, RF transceiver, power management and RAM memory are integrated into a 6 x 8.5 mm package running LTE protocol stack, an OMA lightweight M2M (LWM2M) client for over-the-air device management and a rich set of AT commands. Support for programmable RF filtering allows a simple, reduced bill-of-materials hardware design that enables single SKU devices supporting global LTE bands.
Ideal for adding Cat M1 and/or M2 LTE connectivity to narrowband, low-data rate M2M and IoT devices, including utility meters, industrial sensors, health and fitness bands, asset trackers and other devices for smart home, smart city and wearable applications.
