Truphone partners with industry leaders to build a global IoT module for rapid deployment

Today, Truphone has teamed up with leading industry players Murata, Sony Semiconductor Israel (Sony, formerly Altair Semiconductor) and STMicroelectronics to introduce availability for the Type 1SE module—a highly integrated, miniaturised, low-power cellular IoT solution featuring a low power STM32L4 MCU and an ALT1250 M1/NB modem.

All four companies will come together for a webinar to cover cellular IoT trends and share insight about enabling new markets, such as integrating the new 1SE module into devices.If you missed the webinars, you can watch them there on demand:

More about the partnership and solution

The solution will be preloaded with Truphone’s state-of-the-art eSIM profile—the first of its kind to do so. The module – measuring just 15.4 x 18.0 x 2.5 mm – combines the key components that enable fast and low-cost product development: STMicroelectronics’ ultra-low-power STM32L462RE/Arm® Cortex®-M4 core with 512 KB Flash and 160KB SRAM MCU, Sony’s Altair ALT1250 solution-based low-power LTE Cat M1/NB1 modem and integrated SIM.

Ideal for numerous IoT applications, the Type 1SE is certified as a host device to ease integration challenges. It lessens development time given that the end device can use the regulatory, GCF and carrier certificate already incorporated for the 1SE module. This collaboration also brings the STM32Cube Expansion (X-CUBE) for cellular software suite and substantial support via software development forums.

Oliver Potter, Director of IoT at Truphone said: “At Truphone, we’ve long believed that the better the world connects, the better the world. And we hold that same belief for IoT. The potential for IoT growth is huge, but we cannot get there without seamless connectivity and a global reach. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with some of the best in the industry to bring this to the table for the Type 1SE module.”
