The GSMA-compliant industrial and automotive SIM/eSIM ICs come with all the services needed to connect IoT devices to cellular networks

To provide the connection of IoT devices to cellular networks for wide-scale usage, STMicroelectronics (ST) has announced the mass-market availability of its ST4SIM eSIM (embedded SIM) ICs. These devices are ideal for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications namely machine condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, as well as asset tracking, energy management and connected healthcare devices.

Additionally, by allowing remote management of the SIM profile following the GSMA specification, these eSIMs let customers change the connectivity provider without having access to the device. Device-onboarding and service-provisioning platforms are provided by ST authorised partner Truphone.

Using ST’s B-L462E-CELL1 Discovery kit powered by the ST4SIM, the user can also test and evaluate all product features pre-integrated in a complete ecosystem.

“With rich built-in features and access to world-class provisioning services, ST4SIM family delivers a convenient solution for numerous M2M applications,” said Laurent Degauque, Marketing Director, Secure Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics. “Mass-market availability now lets developers everywhere leverage secure and flexible cellular connectivity in more applications than ever, including independent M2M development, proof-of-concept and prototype projects.”

ST4SIM is available in the industry-standard MFF2 5mm x 6mm DFN8 wettable flank package. The ST4SI2M0020TPIFW is now available on the company website. Other package options are available to order, including the highly miniaturised wafer-level chip-scale package (WLCSP).
