Think SiliconTM and Sequans Communications S.A. have chosen NEMATM|p GPU and NEMATM|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. Our IoT customers will benefit from Think Silicon’s state-of-the-art graphics and display controller technology now inside Monarch SX.”

“We’re excited to deliver our exceptional ultra-low power GPU to Sequans customers,” said George Sidiropoulos, CEO and co-founder of Think SiliconTM. “Our goal is to empower customers with high performance – low power graphics IP to create new markets and products for low-power mobile and embedded display IoT devices.”

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.

NEMATM|p (PICO) and NEMATM|dc are the world’s smallest and most power efficient 2D/2.5D Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) and display controller. 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.
