Narrowband Cat-M1 and NB1 Cellular IOT Chipset Integrates GNSS (GPS)

Altair Semiconductor demonstrated GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) functionality integrated in its new ALT1250 narrowband CAT-M1 and NB1 (NB-IoT) chipset. The ALT1250 is the only narrowband cellular IoT chipset in the market today that incorporates GNSS/GPS functionality.

 

In addition to GNSS functionality, the ALT1250's extreme level of integration eliminates the need for most external components required to design a cellular IoT module. Approximately the size of a shirt button and less than 100mm2 in size, an ALT1250 module features support for both Release 13 standards - CAT-M1 and NB1, and includes a wideband RF front-end supporting unlimited combinations of LTE bands within a single hardware design, a multi-layered and hardware-based security framework, an internal application MCU subsystem and packaging that enables standard, low-cost PCB manufacturing.
