Partnership is like a marriage – not just about the looks or the fun we have when things are good, but about our joint value set, about how we can help each other grow, about a shared vision and an aligned culture.
Pycom cannot embark on an inventor’s journey with partners who does not appreciate the value of ‘not settling for compromise’, for whom integrity is just a marketing term and who does not see that creativity for us translates into many skillsets. We are passionate and optimistic – they must be too. Together we make the magic happen, like any good marriage.
We are very fortunate to work directly and indirectly with some great partners who are recognised for their expertise and success in delivering innovative IOT and other communications solutions.
We bring these highly skilled companies together to ensure our solutions always use best-in-class technologies and we reach the furthest possible corners of the world through enthusiastic and service oriented organisations.
Vanguard and from-our-point-of-view Pioneering, Shanghai based fabless manufacturer of the much acclaimed ESP8266 and now ESP32 chips. Espressif is a close partner and minority investor in Pycom which explains the very intimate working relationship and early arrival of ESP32 based stock with Pycom. They provide us with WiFi and BLE.
Sequans Communications is a fabless chipmaker and a super forward-thinking provider of 4G and single-mode LTE chipset solutions. Founded in 2003, Sequans has developed and delivered seven generations of 4G technology and its chips are certified and shipping around the world. Pycom has been fortunate to have a great, very close working relationship with Sequans and counts them as one of the Monarch chip as one of the most ground-breaking IoT additions in recent years.
Pycom is part of the Sigfox Partner Network and we work closely with the team at Sigfox there to ensure all our Sigfox-enabled products work seamlessly on their networks. This partner network brings customers what’s needed to start an IoT project running on any of Sigfox’s regional networks. Pycom’s happy to be part of the family.
A well-known global semiconductor company operating in 35 countries, Texas Instruments (TI) and Pycom have had a close relationship since our launch with them at CES, Las Vegas Jan 2016. We have had particularly strong support from the Software Development Tools and Low Power Connectivity teams at TI ever since WiPy1.0 and have worked with them to bring the Sigfox integration to SiPy and FiPy.
Pycom’s a LoRa Alliance member since early 2016. We use the Alliance to certify all our LoRa enabled products ensuring they meet the functional requirements of the LoRaWAN protocol specification. So far, we have achieved certification for the LoPy. FiPy will be the next product to add to the LoRa mix come April 2017. You may also find us occasionally taking part in some of the great Alliance events.
