STMicroelectronics has introduced a LoRa system-on-chip (SoC) named STM32WLE5 for connecting smart devices to the Internet of Things (IoT) using long-distance wireless connections. The SoC is designed to allow product developers to create devices like remote environmental sensors, meters, trackers, and process controllers to help manage energy and resources efficiently.
The SoC combines the company's ultra-low-power STM32 microcontroller design with a LoRa-compliant radio in one single-die and easy-to-use device. STM32WLE5 will ensure unique performance surpassing the multiple ST patents for radio Power Management Architecture that are still pending. The ST’s LoRaWAN software for wireless network communications has passed all regional certifications for use worldwide.
STM32WLE5 is fully integrated into the market-proven STM32 ecosystem, including STM32Cube software support and a LoRaWAN stack certified for all regions. It is available in a source-code format and a 5mm x 5mm UFBGA73 package. STM32WLE5 users are also supported by ST’s rolling 10-year longevity commitment for industrial products.
