Sequans Integrates Think Silicon GPU Technology in New LTE for IoT System-on-Chip
Sequans Communications S.A., a 4G chipmaker and provider of single-mode LTE chipset solutions to wireless device manufacturers, has chosen Think Silicon’s NEMA|p GPU and NEMA|dc display controllers as a component of its newest LTE for IoT System-on-Chip (SoC), Monarch SX.
“Sequans chose Think Silicon because of their ultra low power GPU capabilities that support our ongoing delivery of industry-leading chipset solutions with superior price/performance,” said Bertrand Debray, Sequans’ COO.
Monarch SX is an LTE for IoT system-on chip that integrates Sequans’ highly optimized LTE Cat M1/NB1 platform with a low power processor, ultra-low power GPU, display controller, media engine and sensor hub. It is an ideal solution for a wide variety of IoT devices, including wearables, trackers, sensors, and other integrated IoT devices.
NEMA|p (PICO) and NEMA|dc are small and power efficient 2D/2.5D Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) and display controllers. They have been specifically designed for area constrained wearable devices, embedded systems and IoT platforms where power consumption and battery life is crucial while still maintaining vibrant graphics and fluid smartphone performance-like user interface (UI) performance.
