As the specialist of radio connectivity modules and publisher of software and service platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT) market, Telit unveiled the first Mini PCIe module LM940, which is the first card in the world to support LTE download speed to 600Mbps. The Telit LM940 module offers full Mini PCI Express format (50.95 x 30 x 2.8 mm) capable of supporting LTE-Advanced Category 11 (Cat-11) technology. The Telit LM940 specifications are very similar to the current hot LTE-advanced pro module Sierra Wireless AirPrime EM7565.
The LM940, which is expected to be approved by several mobile operators in the fourth quarter of 2018, is capable of operating in the temperature range of -40 ° C to + 85 ° C and achieves this through support the carrier aggregation technology (three in this case) and 256QAM modulation. Telit LM940 is based on Qualcomm’s LTE Snapdragon X12 Modem as well as a satellite positioning receiver and is also capable of transmitting 75 Mbit/s in the upstream channel.
“The LM940 module will be of particular interest to OEMs in the 4G cellular router and gateway market, which demand ever higher bandwidths to satisfy applications such as digital signage and automotive infotainment,” commented Sam Lucero, the analyst at IHS Research, “We anticipate the sale of more than six million cellular IoT gateways by 2021, compared to nearly two million in 2016, for a market that will be worth slightly more than $ 1.6 billion that year. “
