The X-CUBE-CELLULAR Expansion Package consists of a set of libraries and application examples for STM32L4 Series microcontrollers acting as hosts for cellular connectivity applications.
X-CUBE-CELLULAR runs on the STM32L496AGI6-based low-power Discovery board, driving an STMod+ compatible cellular-modem add-on board.
The P-L496G-CELL01 2G/3G cellular-to-cloud add-on board features the UG96 modem from Quectel (2G/3G). The P-L496G-CELL02 LTE cellular-to-cloud add-on board features the BG96 modem from Quectel (LTE Cat M1/NB/2G fallback). Both modem add-on boards embed an EEPROM for saving the modem system configuration, a SIM socket, and a soldered embedded SIM in the MFF2 format, provisioned with the EMnify MVNO profile.
X-CUBE-CELLULAR runs on the STM32L475VGT6-based IoT node Discovery board, driving an STMod+ compatible cellular-modem add-on board (based on the BG96 Quectel or GM01Q Sequans® module) through an Arduino™ / STMod+ adapter.
The X-CUBE-CELLULAR Expansion Package enables users to connect to the Internet through the cellular network by using the provided baseline, and to accelerate the end-product design cycle.
