SPRESENSE from Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has joined the Soracom Partner Space ecosystem, and SSS has recognized Soracom as a recommended provider of connectivity for its SPRESENSE microcontrollers, according to Soracom, Inc., a global provider of sophisticated IoT connectivity.
With a streamlined physical design, ultra-low power consumption, various sensor inputs, inbuilt GPS, and edge AI support, SSS's SPRESENSE 6-core microcontroller board is suited for professional IoT use cases. In addition, SPRESENSE is ideal for edge computing because of its unique combination of strong processing performance and excellent power economy. SPRESENSE is used in applications where sensor analysis, machine learning, image processing, and data filtering are required, but other microcontroller-based solutions fall short.
For global LTE Cat-M1 connectivity, SSS's SPRESENSE LTE extension board includes an onboard antenna. SSS's SPRESENSE LTE extension board, when combined with Soracom's global IoT connectivity, makes it simple to connect almost anywhere in the world, control connections via the Soracom console and API, and access a wide range of services supporting secure private networking, data and protocol management, and integration with leading cloud platforms.
"Collaboration with Soracom enables global connectivity to our IoT SPRESENSE solution, providing an out-of-the-box experience that ensures our customers can be dedicated to driving innovative IoT solutions, especially for Edge AI applications,"
Kenichi Nakano, General Manager, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation
Soracom offers a portfolio of robust connectivity solutions that help IoT deployments connect securely and easily to leading hyper-scale platforms, reduce data and power requirements, and manage total cost of ownership at scale, with more than 4 million connections and global IoT coverage in more than 160 countries.
