Whilst packing more transistors on a chip to add power and performance is still a key focus, developing novel MtM technologies can provide further values to semiconductor devices.
More-than-Moore technologies cover a wide range of fields. For example, MEMS, RF, GPS, Wi-Fi, Image Sensors and many power devices.
Monarch is Sequans’ newest chip and is the world’s first Cat M1/NB1 chip. It is purpose built for narrowband IoT applications, including sensors, wearables, and other low data, low power M2M and IoT devices.
Monarch comprises baseband, RF, power management, and RAM, all integrated into a single, tiny 6.5 x 8.5 mm package.
In addition, Monarch supports advanced features such as programmable RF filtering for global band support in a single SKU.
