Sequans Monarch SiP to Power NextGen Smart Wearable for Infants

Smart wearables maker, Daatrics, has announced the use of Sequans’ Monarch SiP to provide LTE connectivity to its Neebo baby monitor. Daatrics’ Neebo is an innovative infant wearable that provides parents with highly accurate monitoring of their baby’s vital statistics. Sequans Monarch is the industry’s most advanced LTE-M / NB-IoT chip, optimized for IoT devices such as wearables.

According to Daatrics’s CEO and Founder, Andrey Khayrullaev, they chose the Monarch SiP to LTE-enable the Neebo, because of its ultra-small size that is ideal for this tiny baby wearable. Also, Monarch further improves the peace-of-mind Daatrics wants to give its users because of its always-on and everywhere available reliability.

The Neebo infant wearable is a beautifully designed egg-shaped wristlet for baby. It is the only penny-sized device that’s small enough to be placed over a newborn’s wrist. It provides the most accurate infant data stream on the market and monitors baby’s heart rate, oxygen saturation, thermal state, and audio environment, and provides a smart alarm system, alerting parents whenever necessary.

Daatrics is using Sequans’ Monarch SiP, which is the world’s smallest and thinnest LTE connectivity solution, combining Monarch with the universal radio front end of Skyworks. Monarch provides full support for power saving mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) to enable the long battery life needed by many IoT use cases, and it provides the enhanced coverage modes that extend coverage for deep-indoor and remote deployments.

Monarch incorporates the positioning technology of Polte for accurate, low power indoor and outdoor positioning capability using only the LTE radio. It delivers programmable RF filtering for global band support in a Single-SKU, and proprietary dynamic power management technology enabling rock bottom low power consumption of 1 micro amp. Monarch is certified by operators worldwide.
