A global cellular IoT module manufacturer, Cavli Wireless combines intelligent hardware with integrated network access and remote modem management capabilities. Cavli Wireless designs and manufactures industrial-grade cellular IoT smart modules that improve equipment reliability and expedite development processes for a variety of applications.
“OnMicro is thrilled to supply its high-performance RFFE solutions to Cavli Wireless for cellular IoT modules,” said Bruce Qian, CEO of OnMicro. “We hope to further expand our relationship beyond 4G IoT into 5G, Bluetooth and WiFi technologies.”
“Increasing system complexity and miniaturization of IoT devices continue to challenge RF performance and reliability of IoT modules,” said Ajit Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer of Cavli Wireless. “With OnMicro’s proven track record of RF and SoC system design expertise as well as high-volume delivery and quality, we hope to shorten our IoT device development time to market and reduce the cost.”
Cavli Wireless’s C10GS is an LTE CAT 1/4 compatible smart cellular module that comes with an integrated GNSS & eSIM. The C10GS supports global frequency bands including B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B8/B18/B19/B20/B25/B26/B40 /B66 and fully complies with 3GPP E-UTRA Release 10 CAT 1 & 4 standards. The C10GS deploys an advanced Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) with the support of GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, SBAS or IRNSS. For data connectivity, the C10GS supports TCP/IP, HTTP, HTTPS, MQTT, MQTTS, FTP and FTPS protocols. The maximum data rate of 50 Mbps (Uplink) and 150 Mbps (Downlink) can be reached using LTE CAT 4 modulation while CAT 1 provides 5 Mbps (Uplink) and 10 Mbps (Downlink). Combined with Cavli Hubble Global Connectivity and OpenLinux SDK support, this module can be deployed across the globe, making it an ideal solution for logistics, automotive, vehicle tracking systems, and much more. The C10GS is available in a 37 mm x 21.8 mm x 2.8 mm LGA package.
OnMicro’s OM8741-21 SP4T is a high-power RF switch with GPIO interface. This switch features very low insertion loss of 0.35 dB at 1 GHz and 0.65 dB at 2.7G Hz with 19 dB isolation at 2.7 GHz. The switching time is approximately 0.5 µs, which can support fast TDD applications such as WiFi and Bluetooth. It can handle up to 34 dBm power with a VDD of 2.8 V. This device is available in a 9-pin LGA 1.1 mm x 1.1 mm x 0.4 mm package.
OnMicro’s HS8443-61 is a multi-mode, multi-band power amplifier module covering the 663 MHz to 915 MHz, 1710 MHz to 2025 MHz, and 2300 MHz to 2690 MHz frequency bands. This power amplifier is optimized for 4G LTE and is compatible with NB-IoT, 3G WCDMA, CDMA2000, LTE Cat-1 and Cat-4. With Vcc at 3.4 V, the HS8443-61 power amplifier can achieve Power Class 3 (29 dBm) linear output power with LTE 10 MHz/QPSK/12RB (MPR=0) waveform. The HS8443-61 power amplifier is available in a 42-pin LGA 4.0 mm x 6.8 mm x 0.75 mm package.
