Murata's LTE-M / NB-IoT Solution Receives AT&T Certification

The LTE-M/NB-IoT solution (Type 1SC), from Murata Electronics that uses the Altair chipset has now secured AT&T certification for operating on the carrier’s 4G LTE wireless network. The module is a compact form factor solution that enables the applications that are moving the market forward, such as dual-mode cellular IoT.

In addition to its compact size, low power, and cost-efficiency, the Type 1SC's high level of integration drastically cuts time to market and reduces customers' certification costs. The module is powered by Altair's ALT1250, an advanced cellular IoT chipset, providing the market's lowest power consumption, enabling the longest battery life for cellular IoT. Commercially available, the chipset features a hardware-based security framework and a rich set of features including integrated SIM (iUICC), MCU and GNSS, ideal for integration in a range of industrial and consumer IoT applications.

Measuring just 11.1x11.4x1.4 mm, the module was developed in partnership with Altair. It also provides Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) functionality and is RoHS compliant to address a broad range of consumer and industrial IoT applications.

According to Mehul Udani, Director, Connectivity Solutions for Murata Americas, with the AT&T certification, developers can easily tap Murata's RF expertise and access best-in-class solutions. Murata's Type 1SC module is a significant asset as demand for more miniaturized, higher functioning solutions continue on its steep rise.
