An IoT Chip Compatible with 5 Networks


The Belgium-based Imec Research Institute has developed an IoT chip that supports five LPWA (low-power wide area) networks. This system on chip consumes only 8 milliwatts in receive mode and 113 mW when transmitting data. It operates in the 780-930 MHz ISM band, networks, including Sigfox and Wireless M-Bus, geared for smart meters and smart cities. Such chips could, for example, be integrated into MIMO antennas to track bikes or cars.
