Telit to Launch LTE-M and NB-IoT Modules Based on Qualcomm's IoT Chipset

Telit has announced that it will be among the first providers of IoT modules based on the newly announced Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem (See news story here). The highly compact chipset will enable Telit to meet the 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. With one of the smallest form factors available in the market, 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. The ultra-compact version is ideal for the nearly 900 million NB-IoT and LTE-M devices that ABI estimates will ship in 2023.

Telit will also use the Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem in new products of the ME910x1 and xL865 module families, addressing IoT applications with Release 14 and other exacting technical and cost requirements. The new xE310, xE910 and xL865 products are ideal 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.
