It is a single-chip LTE Cat NB1/NB2 platform, compliant with 3GPP release 14/15 of the LTE Advanced Pro standard. Highly integrated, the device includes all primary functions in a chip scale package (CSP), enabling modules smaller than 10 x 10 mm. Features include:

  • 3GPP Release 14/15
  • LTE categories NB1, NB2, single and multi-tone
  • Extremely reduced BOM
  • eDRX and PSM for long sleep duration use cases
