SIMCom has launched two new modules for 5G Stand Alone (SA) Networking based on Qualcomm 5G modem. The SIM8210C and SIM8210C-M2 modules have been specifically developed for data application scenarios with higher cost performance to better empower thousands of industries.
The SIM8210C and SIM8210C-M2 are 5G communication modules developed based on the Qualcomm 315 5G IoT modem. They support 5G NR /LTE-FDD/LTE-TDD bands and comply with the Release 15 protocol, with a maximum data rate of 1.5 Gbps. Both modules support GNSS and FOTA to meet customer demand for positioning and upgrading. Meanwhile, they have various interfaces that include PCIe, USB 3.1, GPIO, etc, with powerful scalability.
The SIM8210C module is compatible with the previous SIM8200G module. It is available in an LGA package that measures 43.6 x 41 mm. The SIM8210C-M2 module is compatible with the previous SIM8200EA-M2 module. It is available in an M2 package that measures 52 x 30 mm.
In both cases, the software instructions are also compatible with older modules, which enables customers to easily switch according to their application needs.
SIMCom board chairman, Yang Tao said that the 315 5G IoT modem and RF system launched by Qualcomm will accelerate the application of 5G in IoT and empower more ecosystems. The latest 5G modules of SIMCom are equipped with the Qualcomm 315 modem, effectively overcoming the high cost of 5G modules. They can accelerate the adoption of 5G in industrial IoT and accelerate the digital transformation of the 5G IoT sector.
According to Qualcomm Vice President of Product Marketing, Sun Gang, the Qualcomm 315 5G IoT modem is designed with industrial and enterprise application needs in mind from the outset. Characterized by leading gigabit performance, low power consumption and efficient heat dissipation, it's a new-generation IoT solution with high speed, powerful functions and superior performance. They are happy to support the SIMCom 5G modules SIM8210C-M2 and SIM8210C with this solution, so as to meet the needs of industries such as energy, automation and manufacturing, precision agriculture, construction, mining and public venues, thereby creating a connected society.
