Swedish electronics firm TT Electronics has announced what appears to be its first Linux-powered device. The S-2Connect Creo SoM provides Cat M1 and NB-IoT connectivity as a “future-proof” solution for low-power, long distance wireless in regions where networks are “switching off and sunsetting their 3G and 2G infrastructure,” says TT. Applications include automation, asset tracking, mobile healthcare and other industrial IoT tasks that need wireless communications.
TT Electronics announced a SODIMM-style “S-2Connect Creo SoM” module that runs Linux on a Quectel BG95-M3 module with an i.MX6 UL, 256MB RAM, 4GB eMMC, GNSS, and a pre-certified Cat M1/NB-IoT modem with micro-SIM.

The 200-pin SODIMM form-factor module ships with a Linux SDK for its single-core, Cortex-A7 NXP i.MX6 UL. The SoC is deployed along with 256MB DDR3L and 4GB eMMC via a Quectel BG95-M3 multi-mode LPWA module. The BG95-M3 supports Cat M1 at 588Kbps downlink and 1119Kbps uplink. It also enables Cat NB2, an upgraded version of the NB1 protocol commonly known as NB-IoT.
The modem offers fallback to 2G EGPRS and supports 2.4GHz Bluetooth BLE 5.0. It also integrates a GNSS receiver with GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/QZSS support.
The S-2Connect Creo SoM, which we saw on EENews Europe, adds a soldered eSIM and 3FF micro-SIM card holder supported with an optional cellular connectivity subscription. The module is pre-certified for Europe, UK, US, and Canada.
