EDGE and HSDPA embedded modules

28 April 2010 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Sierra Wireless has launched its new AirPrime SL series of intelligent embedded modules delivering EDGE and HSDPA connectivity.

Designed to suit the needs of manufacturers of small host devices in high-volume production, the modules are available in a compact and lightweight form factor based on standard 25 x 30 mm LGA (land grid array).

The LGA surface-mount technology and the standardised form factor enable device manufacturers to easily place AirPrime SL Series modules into the final product using automated manufacturing equipment, offering flexibility and scalability to manufacturers of mobile consumer, transportation, energy, sales and payment, networking, and field management and logistics solutions. The product line is currently available in footprint compatible EDGE (SL6087) and HSDPA (SL808x) versions.

The AirPrime SL6087 features quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) EDGE connectivity and an extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). It can be used as a simple modem controlled via AT commands, or it can host and natively execute the customer’s standard ANSI C/C++ application in addition to the communications function, eliminating the need for an additional processor and reducing the total size and cost of the final product. The AirPrime SL6087 module is also delivered with the full set of plug-ins for Open AT OS, enabling users to easily add TCP/IP and Internet, security, Lua scripting language and companion GPS capabilities.

The AirPrime SL8080 (850/1900 MHz), SL8082 (900/2100 MHz) and SL8084 (850/2100 MHz) offer high-speed HSDPA connectivity in the same standard LGA form factor as the SL6087. They all support Sierra Wireless Watcher, a connection manager which supports a fast connection experience, and reduces the number and duration of technical support calls.

All AirPrime SL series products are available with Embedded SIM as an option. Embedded SIM is a fully industrialised and personalised component SIM solution that removes the plastic from a conventional SIM card. The SIM function is integrated into the module itself, ensuring proper functioning in harsh environments and reducing the risk of disconnected devices. Embedded SIM also simplifies the logistics associated with SIM card inventory and eliminates the risk of SIM card theft.

For increased efficiency and simplicity in remote device management, AirPrime SL series modules can be managed with Sierra Wireless AirVantage Management Services for AirPrime. AirVantage device management enables manufacturers, or their service provider customers, to remotely monitor and upgrade AirPrime devices in the field through a web portal.
