Mouser ships Nordic’s nRF91 SiP
Featuring an integrated application microcontroller, full LTE modem, RF front end, and power management in a single device, the nRF91 SiP is designed for low power cellular IoT applications, says Mouser. The distributor is now shipping the system in package (SiP) from Nordic Semiconductor.
The nRF91 provides globally compatible narrowband (NB) IoT and LTE-M support in bands ranging from 700 MHz to 2.2 GHz. It has an integrated Arm Cortex-M33 processor, which has Arm CryptoCell and Arm TrustZone security technology for secure operation.
The nRF9160 SiP uses Qorvo’s proven RF front-end packaging and MicroShield technology to combine high performance with low power consumption, says Mouser. The GCF-certified, 3GPP LTE-compliant module is available with built-in GPS support, offering a cost-effective solution for asset tracking applications.
The nRF91 SiP is housed in a 10 x 16 x 1.0mm package and features 32 general-purpose input and output (GPIO) pins and a range of peripherals and interfaces.
There are software examples and hardware reference designs available to simplify the design process and reduce time-to-market. The nRF91 SiP offers extended battery life and low-cost maintenance and installation, making it suitable for smart city products as well as industrial, medical, and agricultural applications.
The nRF9160 development kit is available for rapid prototyping and allows access to all interfaces and IO via connectors. The nRF9160 kit features four LEDs, two switches, and two buttons, which are user-programmable for tailored performance.
