[Hsinchu, Taiwan, September 7th 2016] M2COMM, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) provider, today debuts its IoT SoC Uplynx. Uplynx RCZ1 and RCZ2/4 modem modules and reference designs have reached the final stage of SIGFOX certification. Uplynx is a highly integrated SoC simplifying the development of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) IoT applications. RCZ1 and RCZ2/4 modules are designed to produce cost-effective and low-power devices for SIGFOX’s global IoT network. With a highly efficient on-chip CMOS Power Amplifier, Uplynx delivers 22dBm at only 60% of the typical current consumption of existing solutions.
Uplynx is manufactured by TSMC with its state-of-the-art process. It’s not only small – 7×7 mm – but also integrates a powerful 32-bit MCU with 128kB of Flash and 16kB of RAM, packed with features including built-in multi-channel ADC, analogue comparators, oscillators and GPIOs. Combining a fully-integrated multi-RCZ SIGFOX protocol stack and a rich AT command interface with built-in ID and security key, Uplynx epitomizes all the characters and is a uniquely differentiated solution for SIGFOX.
“M2COMM aims to offer innovative solutions to reshape the Internet of Things, and Uplynx is the result of a joint collaboration between M2COMM, SIGFOX and TSMC;” said Dr. Derrick Wei, CEO of M2COMM. “With Uplynx, we are committed to provide IoT device makers with a way to shorten their design cycles and launch various IoT solutions at an affordable price.”
“The Uplynx SoC, provides a compelling cost/performance value proposition,” said Tony Francesca, Vice President of Global Ecosystems at SIGFOX. “We are pleased to invite M2COMM to join CTIA and the upcoming SIGFOX Chicago Coverage Celebration, as the Uplynx RCZ2/4 module and reference design will enrich the SIGFOX ecosystem for the North American market.”
M2COMM will exhibit these products and perform live demos at SIGFOX booth #5352 at CTIA Super Mobility on September 7-9 in Sands Expo, Las Vegas.
