Low-power sensor-to-satellite network startup raises funds
Satellite IoT connectivity company Totum Labs has announced that it has completed a $13 million Series A financing that will enable it to accelerate the deployment and commercialization of its low-power sensor-to-satellite network and connectivity.
four foundational patents, and strategic partnerships with wireless and IoT product development and specialist service provider Qamcom and others. The DMSS 3990 is a highly integrated low-power sensor-to-satellite (LP-S2S) system on a chip (SoC) ASIC that includes a DMSS modem, RF functionality, baseband and application CPUs, and provides for efficient integrated power regulation (for multi-year battery life) in a small/low cost package using the Global Foundries 22DFX process.

The company has said that it is looking to launch an eventual 25 satellites by 2022 to build a worldwide network that can transmit low data-rate messages with the unlicensed 2.4 GHz band used for Wi-Fi when on the ground. The chip that companies will use in their devices is expected to cost around $4 - inexpensive enough to get it into lower-cost consumer devices.
