Fibocom has announced the availability of engineering samples for its high-value 5G module that features 3GPP Release 16 standard capabilities, providing better 5G network experience for mass data scenarios such as IIoT, C-V2X, HD live streaming, telemedicine, etc.
The FM160-NA, is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon X62 modem chipset. It is a NR Sub-6 module that is backward compatible with LTE-TDD, LTE-FDD and WCDMA network standards, eliminating the customers' investment concerns at the initial stage of 5G deployment. The module supports NR CA, delivering 5G downlink rates of 3.5 Gbps and uplink rates of 900 Mbps, ideally suitable for IoT applications that require high data throughput. The Fibocom FM160-NA module adopts an M.2 form factor measuring 30.0 x 52.0 x 2.3 mm, which is compatible with Fibocom’s 5G module FM150.
Along with abundant functionalities such as digital audio, VoLTE and VoNR, the Fibocom FM160-NA module supports a multi-constellation GNSS receiver, including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo, which provides high-performance positioning and navigation while greatly simplifing product design. Meanwhile, it supports multiple operating systems (Linux/ Android/ Windows), various Internet protocols as well as industry-standard interfaces (USIM, USB 3.1/3.0/2.0, PCIe 4.0 and I2S), allowing much flexibility and ease of integration for customer's application.
At present, the engineering samples of FM160-NA are available for product testing and development, which provides solution that help device OEMs and systems designers with their innovative new products, optimizing business operations and processes.
“Fibocom continues to popularize 5G across various industries with the 5G wireless module FM160-NA. The module significantly improves the performance of 5G in terms of network coverage, network flexibility and transmission rate, providing 5G wireless communication solutions to more end customers,” said Jason Zhu, General Manager of IoT Product Line, Fibocom.
