Mouser Electronics and other major global Premier Farnell distributors will begin providing future nRF9160 module, which has more than for the LTE-M and NB-IoT applications and the introduction of any other cellular module IoT much smaller, lower power consumption and have more security features. nRF9160 also has many things to (IoT) is the target of the unique features , has global operations certified easier to win customers design and development project Nordic Semiconductor launched its cellular nRF91 series of things (IoT) module of the first nRF9160 system in package (SiP) members of the product will begin shipping in the future to all customers through a global distribution network, including Digi-Key, Mouser Electronics, Premier Farnell and other distributors, including.
nRF9160 module not only by the respective regulatory FCC and CE certification requirements Control Engineering Copyright , also won the trust of the GCF certification, which is in line with 3GPP LTE standards and global cellular network interoperability standard mobile communications industry, “quality mark”, which means nRF9160 SiP approved the deployment in the world of cellular networks and cellular Internet of things (IoT) product applications. Because nRF9160 SiP has a unique design usability , is easier to win customers design and development projects, and therefore its universal service will make IoT cellular wireless technology can be used in any application popularity areas, the main examples include asset monitoring and tracking, utility metering, industrial (machine) connectivity and predictive maintenance, and smart city infrastructure, agricultural technology (smart agriculture) and medical care. Size nRF9160 SiP modules is only 10 x 16 x 1mm, for very compact wearable medical devices and consumer products; moreover, it is an integrated cellular connection and the desired IoT complete solution of all applications, requires only one external battery , SIM card and antenna. In order to achieve this high level of integration, Nordic cooperation with Qorvo manufacturing an integrated chip rather than more like modules in the system-package module. nRF9160 SiP using the most advanced Qorvo proven RF front-end, advanced packaging technology and the MicroShield? Technology to provide high performance and low power consumption in conjunction with the unique ultra compact solution. Due to the combination Nordic multimode LTE-M / NB-IoT modems, a transceiver and a SAW Qorvo customized RF front-end solutions, nRF9160 SiP may be supported by a single operating worldwide SiP type models. Meanwhile, nRF9160 SiP is the first use date Arm Arm Cortex M-33 CPU module IoT honeycomb core, and having a 1MB Flash 256kB RAM board memory and to provide support. nRF9160 SiP is the first to Arm Arm TrustZone most advanced and Arm CryptoCell security capabilities into the Internet-level encryption and application protection modules. These technologies are designed for energy efficiency, and requires the highest level of performance embedded IoT product in computing power, power and security. nRF9160 SiP having a 1MB Flash memory and a 256 kB RAM board CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , having a large set of peripherals, analog and digital interfaces, the GPIO 32, with a complete independence of the LTE modem function, and a plurality band RF front end. Another unique feature nRF9160 SiP IoT module for the cellular market is integrated GPS support, allowing the use of both GPS and cellular data combined to achieve more accurate positioning than one technique alone. Nordic Semiconductor cellular IoT product manager Peder Rand commented: “We are simplifying all unnecessary complexity to the design of technical personnel, expanding the scope of application of Bluetooth technology and a pre-certified LTE-M can immediately use the / NB-IoT nRF9160 SiP. module by competing solutions completely different approach, the cellular IoT can also simplify, to extend the scope of application of this technology. now, all customers can get this module. “Nordic Semiconductor tactical marketing manager John Leonard supplementSaid: “Among the many unique features for IoT, the most important thing is the safety of , which for any IoT applications is critical .Arm TrustZone feature allows nRF9160 SiP can be each area designated as trusted and untrusted implementation of regional areas. this means that the encryption key storage elements and other key data will reside trusted zone in the outside world is not directly accessible. by combining Arm CryptoCell security features nRF9160 SiP, which paragraph module is undoubtedly the most advanced cellular security IoT devices on the market today, “Eric Creviston Qorvo president of mobile products, said:.” we are very pleased to establish a strategic partnership with Nordic Semiconductor, together this type of new cellular IoT solutions .Qorvo very pleased to see the market’s leading RF and advanced packaging technology played a key role in achieving the aim of emerging low-power cellular IoT market of new products. “nRF9160 SiP development kit is now available, SiP module sample, LTE-M firmware, and is connected with a cloud SDK application example as support. This includes Nordic cloud-based device management tool nRF Connect for Cloud, as well as PC-based tool nRF Connect for Desktop, and Segger Embedded Studio support, these features are designed to help customers rapidly deploy IoT application development projects from the sensor to the cloud. Samples with NB-IoT and GPS capabilities provided by a limited number will be the first quarter of 2019 through a firmware update for evaluation. How the world’s largest supplier of Bluetooth chips to enter the cellular market Nordic Semiconductor IoT with business and technical leadership in the global Bluetooth chip market and famous. Widely available marking the Nordic nRF9160 SiP module is officially taken a new step into the low-power wireless cellular IoT technology market. Cellular technology is well known complex wireless technology, only a few global engineering team really has the expertise and experience in the design of the structural level. Nordic Semiconductor engineering team all come from outside the company to attract, Nordic was taking advantage of Nokia, Microsoft, Broadcom and STMicroelectronics in the 2011-2014 period – Ericsson and other companies the opportunity to rationalize a series of layoffs in Finland, employing the world’s top cellular technology R & D engineers. This means that the Nordic advantage in terms of cellular wireless technology no less than any other company in the world: Nordic design of most cellular IoT team members for much of his career has been engaged in the design of cellular technology. Most importantly, all the technical support nRF9160 SiP module comes from scratch designers of these products.
