The Sierra Wireless AirPrime AR7550 embedded wireless module is the first in the company's AirPrime AR7 series of automotive-grade modules for LTE networks. The AirPrime AR7550 features the next generation multicore architecture Sierra Wireless introduced earlier this year, which provides a dedicated application processor, an open-source application framework, and secure cloud services to simplify wireless integration and help reduce development cost. The AirPrime AR7550 is specifically developed for the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.
The AirPrime AR7 offers an advanced, cost-effective solution for telematics and other in-vehicle connectivity needs. It includes a dedicated application processor to reduce design complexity and an application framework with specific automotive libraries to speed up development time. Additionally, integrated cloud connectivity simplifies ongoing management and maintenance over the lifetime of the vehicle. By eliminating the need for separate components to be sourced and assembled, the AR7 provides OEMs with simple and scalable wireless integration at a lower cost.
The AirPrime AR7 is designed and tested to real-world automotive scenarios, with TS 16949 certification, automotive quality processes (PPAP, 8D, FA) and low ppm rates, tolerance for extreme operating environments, and an extended operating temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius. The Sierra Wireless AirPrime AR7550 module has achieved technical approval for operation on the Verizon Wireless network and samples are available to OEM customers now for testing and development purposes. Variants of the AirPrime AR7 module for LTE networks in other areas of the world are also sampling now.
