STMicroelectronics is committed to offering reliable and cost-effective wireless connectivity solutions:
- To connect smart objects to the internet and the cloud, or, in a broader sense, to the Internet of Things (IoT).
- To replace cables & connectors with short range wireless communications.
The wireless technology behind every network features a specific range, energy per bit and bandwidth requirements, and is most often linked to a specific standard. With the growing importance of wireless sensor networks and even more broadly the Internet of Things concept, there’s virtually no electronic system that does not require wireless connectivity.
ST’s portfolio includes a variety of RF transceivers, network processors ICs and fully certified modules for key wireless connectivity technologies including sub-1GHz long-range networks (6LowPan, Wireless M-Bus (wM-Bus), Sigfox and LoRaWAN®), 60 GHz short range millimeter-wave RF, Bluetooth®, Bluetooth-Smart®, 802-15-4, OpenThread, LTE Cat 1 and Narrowband IoT.
To speed up your time to market, reference designs and modules are available as well as a complete development ecosystem with software packages, protocol stacks and evaluation boards.
ST60 is a fully integrated millimeter-wave RF Transceiver operating in the unlicensed 60 GHz V-Band and addressing short-range (few centimeters) contactless high-speed connectivity. ST60 enables cable-free and connector-free solutions for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications. ST60 offers best-in-class wireless performance with multi-gigabit data rates coupled with very low power consumption.
With today’s technologies, users can also receive an alert on their phone or a wearable device. ST’s S2-LP, sub-1GHz RF transceiver and the TSU111 operational amplifiers together with STM32 enable such enhanced alarms.
