u-blox introduced the LISA-C200 wireless voice and data modem module. The u-blox LISA-C2 series provides dual-band CDMA2000 1xRTT data and voice communication in a SMT form factor. The modules are fully qualified and certified modules. They feature low power consumption and a rich set of Internet protocols. Samples of LISA-C200 will be available in the first quarter of next year. They are ideal for M2M and automotive applications like Fleet management, Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), people and asset tracking, surveillance and security and Point of Sales (PoS) terminals.
The u-blox UBX-G6010-NT is a single-chip GPS solution. The UBX-G6010-NT measures only 5 x 6 x 1.1 mm and does require an external host. The UBX-G6010-NT GPS features high sensitivity (down to -162 dBm or -148 dBm during coldstart) and fast acquisition times. The total system BOM requires as few as 5 external components (including SAW filter and TCXO). An LDO and LNA are integrated and external memory is not needed. The UBX-G6010-NT supports GPS crystals and TCXOs. The chip is ideal for small, low-power, low cost applications.
u-blox introduced the LISA family of small, ultra-fast wireless modems. LISA is ideal for ultra-portable devices requiring high speed wireless Internet access (such as mobile computing, car infotainment, telematics systems, hand-held terminals, automatic meter reading, fixed wireless terminals, telehealth, remote displays and point of sales terminals). Samples and evaluation kit will be available in early Q1, 2011. Operator and standards bodies’ certification is in progress.
u-blox announced the N731 UMTS/HSPA modem reference design. The high-speed wireless connectivity reference design features full High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) capabilities: 7.2 Mb/s download and 5.8 Mb/s upload speeds. The N731 is a design that combines a baseband processor, RF transceiver, antenna multiplexer, and power amplifier components to support eight bands of HSPA / UMTS / EDGE / GPRS / GSM functionality including data, voice, and SMS.
u-blox introduced the LUCY family of high-speed wireless modules. LUCY is based on UMTS/HSDPA and supports the world’s fastest globally adopted mobile communications standard. LUCY is ideal for M2M applications like high-bandwidth multimedia systems for mobile Internet and VoIP routing, in-car multimedia, streaming video for remote media panels, and transfer of large data volumes for medical diagnostics, security and surveillance.
