Telit has announced that it will be among the world’s first providers of IoT modules based on the recently announced Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem. The highly compact chipset will enable Telit to meet booming demand for ultra-small modules for applications such as wearable medical devices, fitness trackers and industrial sensors as well as deliver 3GPP Release 14 functionality for the first time in its portfolio.
The first Telit products based on the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem include the new xE310 family of LTE-M and NB-IoT modules. As one of the smallest form factors available in the market, according to Telit, the new form factor family includes support for 2G fallback and GNSS location technology. Telit’s new xE310 form factor is based on a single LGA pad layout supporting multiple module dimensions from ultra-miniature single mode NB-IoT variants for global applications, to larger versions supporting multi-mode multi technology packaging.
Telit says it will also apply the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem in new members of the ME910x1 and xL865 module families. The new xE310, xE910 and xL865 products are designed for future-proofing existing IoT applications on the road to 5G. Telit IoT modules based on the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem will be available for sampling in H1 2019.
