Based on the industry-standard M.2 form factor, the EM919x 5G modules , says the company, will enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to deploy secure connectivity worldwide at the highest possible speeds with ultra-low latency for mobile computing, routers, gateways, industrial automation, and many new Industrial IoT applications.
"5G is the most technically challenging evolution in the history of wireless, particularly because of the introduction of mmWave," says Larry Zibrik, Vice President, 5G & Embedded Broadband, Sierra Wireless. "Sierra Wireless has delivered industry-leading embedded modules, beginning with the first generation of cellular data technologies, and we’re the only partner with the experience to help our customers navigate the complexities of 5G. Industry leaders trust Sierra Wireless to help them get to market on time with secure 5G connectivity, and to invest in the expertise required to enable future key features, such as dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) and 5G NR standalone mode for even higher performance.”
With support for mmWave, sub-6 GHz and LTE, as defined by the 3GPP Release 15 standard, its 5G modules, says the company, will power next-generation devices that deliver high-bandwidth, low-latency applications, including private networks, enterprise networking, edge processing, live streaming, video security, e-gaming, smart factories, robotics, drones, virtual reality and machine learning.
The EM9190 5G NR sub-6 GHz and mmWave embedded module features automatic 4G and 3G fallback networks, integrated GNSS receiver, and FCC certification for CBRS networks, and is offered as providing reliability, security, and flexibility for Industrial IoT designs. The EM9191 5G NR sub-6 GHz module is also available in M.2 form factor, providing a simple upgrade path to mmWave, as well as the EM7690 LTE Cat-20 module to help facilitate the migration and differentiation between 4G LTE and 5G. The EM919x modules are built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System.
The 5G EM919x embedded modules are available now.
