ST Joins ZETA Alliance to Promote Emerging Remote IoT Connectivity Standards

STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has joined the ZETA Alliance, an industry body promoting ZETA Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) low-cost long-range IoT connectivity technology.


ZETA technology is rapidly developing across China, Japan and beyond, bringing together innovative wireless technologies that enable low-power, low-cost devices to rely on robust long-distance connections. In addition, native networking support, which allows peer-to-peer communication between network nodes, enhances network coverage and resilience.


In joining the Alliance as a Promoter, ST expects ZETA technology to further accelerate the spread of IoT across all territories worldwide. The standard allows developers to develop high-value IoT-based solutions to challenges that face extreme cost constraints.


"ZETA has a strong value proposition and is taking its place among established LPWAN technologies, boosting choice and flexibility for solution developers and enabling IoT to deliver even greater benefits to more end-users," said Hakim Jaafar, STM32 Wireless Marketing Director, STMicroelectronics. "ST is actively engaged with industry stakeholders on all leading IoT connectivity LPWAN standards and offers a portfolio of solutions that help developers bring their innovations to the market quickly and cost-effectively."


Welcoming ST to the ZETA Alliance, Dr. Zhuoqun Li, CEO of Zifisense, a key contributor to ZETA technology and a founding member of the ZETA Alliance, said, "We believe that ST will greatly strengthen ZETA's ecosystem chain of developers and promote further development and deployment of ZETA technology.   We look forward to working with ST to create a broader LPWAN 2.0 global IoT eco-system."


ST is working with ZiFiSense to bring the technology to highly integrated STM32WL System-on-Chip (SoC) wireless devices that combine ultra-low-power microcontroller functionality with a wireless stage certified in accordance with international radio equipment regulations on the same chip.
