Outfitted with a Qualcomm 9205 LTE modem chipset, the ME310G1 and ME910G1 modules from Telit enable large-scale LTE-M and narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) deployments comprising hundreds of thousands or even millions of devices. Both 4G modules are compatible with the 3GPP Release 14 standard, supporting Cat M1 and NB2, and offer optional 2G fallback for use in areas where LTE-M/NB-IoT service is not yet available.
The multiband modules leverage such features as power-saving mode and extended discontinuous reception to extend battery life for as long as a decade. They also ensure reliable indoor connections, with a maximum coupling loss of up to +15 dB/+20 dB for deep in-building penetration compared to earlier LTE standards.
The ME310G1 LTE-only variant occupies less than 200 mm2 (13.1×14.3×2.6 mm), while the variant with 2G fallback requires just 300 mm2 . Dimensions of the ME910G1 module are 28.2×28.2×2.2 mm. Their LGA common form factor allows them to serve as drop-in-replacements for earlier series members, allowing integrators to design a single PCB layout and deploy a combination of technologies.
ME310G1 and ME910G1 samples are now available. Mass production begins in late 2019 and Q1 2020, depending on the product version.
