STM32 Discovery Packs simplify cellular-to-cloud connectivity

New Products |
STMicroelectronics has configured two new STM32 Discovery Packs to allow faster connectivity to cloud services over 2G/3G or LTE Cat M1/NB1 networks.

Both packs contain the STM32L496 Discovery board and the STMod+ Cellular expansion board which integrates a Quectel cellular modem. The boards come with the Espruino embedded JavaScript engine ported to the STM32L496 MCI and the X-CUBE-CLD-GEN expansion pack. The P-L496G-CELL01 kit has a Quectel UG96 modem for global 2G/3G network connectivity, and the P-L496G-CELL02 supports the LTE Cat M1/NB1 (NB-IoT) standards, with 2G fallback by using the BG96 modem.

The hardware can run customised sample scripts on the JavaScript engine out of the box. The X-CUBE-CLD-GEN expansion package is supported by STM32Cube software tools, libraries, middleware, and code examples to help C code development.

The kits also come with free trials of cloud services from ST’s partners, including the EMnify cellular IoT connectivity and programmable SIM management solution, Grovestreams Cloud data-analytics platform, Exosite cloud IoT connectivity and solution platform, AVSystem Anjay LwM2M SDK and AVSystem Coiote Cloud device management, Aimagin Matlab Blockset Solution with Thingspeak Cloud support, and the Ubidots IoT-application builder. The ST incard embedded SIM solution has an EMnify profile that provides connectivity in 133 countries.
