Telit Wireless Solutions, Inc., a specialist in machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, announced the launch of HE910, the worldwide smallest module featuring 5-band HSPA+ Tuesday at CTIA Wireless in Orlando, Florida,. The module is designed to be used in any 3G network worldwide without the need for regional variants. The small footprint Land-Grid-Array (LGA) form factor is suitable for compact devices, e.g. e-readers or PDAs, with data-rich applications like multimedia.
In 3G mode, Telit’s HE910 supports all five existing frequency bands: 850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz. Additionally, it provides ubiquitous 2G coverage with quad band GPRS and EDGE class 33.
The LGA package measures 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.6mm. It is designed to save space and weight, reducing costs in high-volume applications and in portable devices. Besides their compact build, LGA modules can be used for automated assembly with standard SMT equipment and enhance mechanical shock resistance.
HE910 boasts transfer rates HSDPA of 14.4 Mbps (Cat 10) and HSUPA of 5.7 Mbps (Cat 6), to be used in devices with high throughput applications such as mobile computing, in-car telematics, PDAs, e-readers, tablet PCs, and consumer electronics in general. Future firmware releases offer the possibility to further increase the throughput without having to make changes to the hardware.
The HE910 family features a high speed serial port (MIPI HSI) and Receive Diversity. Optionally, it is equipped with integrated high sensitivity A-GPS functionality for indoor fixes and simultaneous GPS with voice and data.
