Snapdragon Modem-RF Systems Power Telit’s New 5G M.2 Module

With the company’s latest 5G data card release, Telit is offering OEMs and systems integrators a solution that supports new latency-sensitive applications.

Telit’s new 5G data cards, 5G M.2, are powered by Qualcomm Technologies’ Snapdragon X65 and X62 modem-RF systems, both fourth generation. This is the latest version of the 5G standard and comes with enhanced features such as ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) that enables new use cases for industrial IoT (IIoT), smart manufacturing, robotics, industrial gateways, fixed wireless access, SD-WAN, 4K/8K video streaming, extended reality (XR), gaming, eHealth and private 5G networks.

The Snapdragon X65 and X62 are 3GPP Release 16 modem-RF and 10 Gigabit 5G systems. The modem-to-antenna solutions come with an upgradeable architecture for quick rollout of Release 16 features through software updates.

Snapdragon X65 supports mmWave and sub-6 GHz spectrum aggregation, as well as mmWave in standalone mode and FDD+TDD, TDD+TDD and FDD+FDD in sub6 GHz flexible carrier aggregation combinations. Its highly integrated L1/L5 dual-frequency GNSS is what makes applications that require precise location possible.

Features such as the 4 nm baseband chip and technologies like the 7th-gen Qualcomm® Wideband Envelope Tracking, Qualcomm® AI-Enhanced Signal Boost and Qualcomm® 5G PowerSave 2.0 lend to power efficiency that enable all-day battery life as well as high transmit and receive performance.
Other capabilities that increase attainable 5G network speeds and improve capacity with available spectrum include the mmWave-sub6 aggregation and large bandwidth aggregation for downlink and uplink. The solutions also come equipped with Qualcomm® SmartTransmit™ 2.0 technology for smart control of multiple antennas for optimal mmWave and sub-6 performance.

Telit’s current solution, FN980, is powered by Snapdragon X55 Modem-RF System for 3GPP Release 15, making this integration a natural evolution for the company’s new data cards.
