"Our collaboration with Sequans, the leader in cellular IoT, promises great benefits to the electronic ecosystem," aid Dr. Fred Rivard, MicroEJ CEO. "With our comprehensive MICROEJ VEE edge container integrated in Monarch 2, the world's most secure and advanced LTE-M/NB-IoT connectivity solution, device makers and developers anywhere in the world have a complete solution to create or adapt cost effective and useful devices, fast."
Leveraging Monarch 2's embedded application MCU, the Sequans/MicroEJ collaboration contributes to a more sustainable IoT environment with fewer components, enabling easier supply chain management within the current context of component shortages. Typical applications that can make the best use of the MICROEJ VEE application development environment include smart utility meters, appliances, wearables, and industrial IoT devices.
Monarch 2 GM02S is the world's only cellular IoT module with a certified Common Criteria EAL5+ secure enclave for integrated SIM (ieUICC) that is compliant with GSMA standards. The module also supports a single rail power supply starting at 2.2 V, the lowest level in the industry, allowing for better efficiency of the internal power management unit, further reducing power consumption, and lowering battery and BOM cost.
