Kinéis is proud to announce that it has joined STMicroelectronics Partner Program to make its satellite connectivity available to all. Thanks to Kinéis’ software stack, ST’s existing STM32WL microcontrollers will become compatible with the Kinéis system, reducing development cycles for new Kinéis-ready
hardware developments.
STM32WL is a wireless MCU integrating a sub-giga radiofrequency transceiver; it allows application code as well as the Kinéis software stack to be embedded on the same single component. Kineis’ software stack consists of an easy-to-use pre-compiled code library, able to generate Kinéis modulations and to communicate with its satellites.

Steve Hamard, Kinéis Product development manager says “This wireless microcontroller offers the perfect solution for a first demonstration in the integration of the Kinéis technology into an off the shelf component. This will help and accelerate new product development for device manufacturers in our ecosystem and possibly enable product retrofit. It is very exciting to collaborate with ST to democratize access to satellite IoT Connectivity.”

“The ST Partner Program is a high-value offering that has exceeded the expectations of our customers and partners. It helps customers’ design teams access strong supplemental skills, tools, and resources that meet design time-to-market challenges across the full ecosystem of products and services while easily integrating ST devices in their projects,” said Alessandro Maloberti, Partner Ecosystem Director, STMicroelectronics. “By selecting, qualifying, and certifying ST Authorized Partners, customers know that the partners they engage have the expertise to accelerate their design and development activities and ensure they ship the most robust and efficient products and services to market.”

With the STM32 Evaluation Kit (NUCLEO-WL55JC2) Kinéis will launch its new discovery program: SmartSat.

This new plan is a simple way to try out the connectivity by using a well-known component frequently used for IoT connectivity integration. The SmartSat Program is designed to simplify the satellite IoT adoption and accelerate product development. Kineis will offer trial connectivity and provisioning for the STM32WL Evaluation board (NUCLEO-WL55JC2) and support for software integration, service validation and Kinéis Device certification.

STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics
applications created the ST Partner Program to speed customer development efforts by identifying and
highlighting to them companies with complementary products and services. Moreover, the program’s
certification process assures that all partners are periodically vetted for quality and competence. For more
