Sequans, a leading LTE chipmaker, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, introduced CLOE (Connecting and Locating Objects Everywhere), a new LTE-connected tracker platform.
CLOE is an integration of Sequans’ Monarch LTE Cat M1/NB1 chip and ST’s Teseo III Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) chip into one comprehensive platform that simplifies the development of LTE-based IoT tracker devices for the full range of vertical markets, including logistics, consumer electronics, and automotive.
CLOE is targeted for multiple vertical markets with best-in-class performance for all of the important tracking measures: battery life, location accuracy, reachability, mobility, and reporting periodicity.
Specifically designed and optimized for OEMs and ODMs to add IoT tracking capability to their product offerings, CLOE integrates for industry-leading communications and satellite-based tracking performance. It is based on a full bill of materials (BOM) that includes LTE, GNSS, accelerometer, power supply, battery management, LED, and button management.
