InnoPhase IoT, a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ultra-low power Wi-Fi IoT solutions, announced an evaluation platform that combines STMicroelectronics’ STM32U5 MCU evaluation board with InnoPhase IoT’s Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/BLE evaluation board.

The board seamlessly integrates ultra-low power Wi-Fi/BLE with STM32 microcontrollers to enable low-power cloud-connected battery-powered IoT devices. Target applications for the combination include medical, wearables, industrial IoT, commercial, and smart-home automation.

The STM32U5 MCU is based on an Arm Cortex-M33 core and is a new generation of 32-bit microcontroller targeting the most demanding power/performance requirements. The MCU integrates the Cortex-M33 core with up to 4MB of flash memory and 2.5MB of SRAM to enable the highest performance amongst 32-bit MCUs, while cutting power by up to 90% and extending battery life using a range of power-management features.

The InnoPhase IoT Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/BLE5 multiprotocol wireless platform enables the development of ultra-low power cloud-connectivity applications without compromising performance, according to the company. A low Tx current of 81ma at MCS7 and DTIM-10 current at 57uA can extend battery life to 10-plus years for IoT devices.

Talaria TWO features Wi-Fi provisioning using BLE, secured over-the-air updates, and seamless cloud connectivity to AWS and Microsoft Azure, providing ease of development and deployment for IoT solutions. The InnoPhase IoT platform’s high integration, small size, and multiple antenna options allow customers to meet new use case requirements.

The seamless integration of STM32U5 and Talaria TWO evaluation boards allows designers to build ultra-low power sensor-to-cloud connected IoT solutions.

“InnoPhase IoT Talaria TWO’s low-power Wi-Fi connectivity to STM32U5 offers long battery life for ultra-low-power smart applications, including wearables, personal medical devices, home automation and industrial IoT,” said Bertrand Denis, STM32 product manager at STMicroelectronics. “Our collaboration with InnoPhase IoT will help customers meet low-power, long battery-life requirements without sacrificing performance while implementing Wi-Fi cloud connectivity.”
