Telit Cinterion, an IoT solutions provider, recently expanded their product offerings with the SE868K5 family of dual-band GNSS positioning modules. The family includes SE868K5-D and SE868K5-I modules, built on the AIROHA AG3335 chipset family with a scalable design suitable for global deployment or for use in the Indian market.
Enhancing Performance and Flexibility
The SE868K5-D module offers a full dual-band (L1 + L5) option suitable for global deployment, while the SE868K5-I shares the same architecture in a defeatured design optimized for cost-efficient applications in the Indian market. Developed from the 7×7 mm single-frequency SE873K5, the SE868K5 modules measure at 11x11mm, added to the xE868 form factor family, and use unified proprietary commands (PTWS) that allow for flexibility and easy migration within the product family. The SE868K5 architecture also features extra LNA(s) after the SAW filter for optimal performance and immunity to interference, ensuring the best co-existence with cellular and other radios.
Low Power and Customizable Applications
The new modules are optimized for various IoT verticals, including fleet management systems, e-mobility applications, road tolling systems, cellular base stations, automotive telematics systems, wearable sports training monitors, and more. offering low power and usage profiles for customized applications. Early marketing samples are available now, and engineering samples will be available in May 2023. Mass production is scheduled for June 2023.
Partnering with AIROHA AG3335 Chipset Family
Kevin Chen, General Manager at Positioning Communications Product Business Unit of Airoha Technology, stated that “AIROHA, a world leading GNSS SoC provider, has partnered with Telit Cinterion for years in creating many successful GNSS solutions”. The AIROHA AG3335 chip provides abundant computing power and memory capacity and can receive signals from as many as six navigational satellite constellations, allowing flexibility in development of various applications.
Telit Cinterion’s addition of the SE868K5 family of dual-band GNSS positioning modules caters to the varying needs of their global customers, as well as their customers on the Indian subcontinent. In leveraging AIROHA’s next-generation chipsets with their proprietary technology, they are indeed able to provide best-in-market global and local solutions.
