The FG101 from Fibocom is an LTE-A Cat 12 Module that is designed to provide high-speed connectivity in applications like FWA, intelligent security, industry 4.0, and connected cars. It is based on Qualcomm’s SDX12 chipset platform and provides an LTE throughput of 600 Mbps downlink and 150 Mbps uplink. The module supports 4 x 4 MIMO technology, and the CBRS unlicensed band B48 for improved network performance.
The LTE-A Cat 12 module has an integrated GNSS receiver (GPS/GLONASS/Beidou/Galileo) and can be controlled via UART, GPIO, ADC, SDIO, I2C, USB3.0, PCM, I2S, PCIe2.0, SPI, and USIM interfaces. It supports LTE-TDD/LTE-FDD/WCDMA, LTE-A Carrier Aggregation (CA), LTE in unlicensed spectrum (LTE-U), and LTE + Wi-Fi Link Aggregation network modes to deliver unprecedented LTE speeds, bandwidth, and network performance. The FG101 is available in an LGA package that measures 39.5 x 37 x 2.8 mm.
