Avnet Presents New Cellular Module AVT9152 for IoT Development

Avnet has expanded its product line for rapid IoT development  and design with the launch of the AVT9152 module, designed for a range of embedded applications requiring cellular connectivity yet demanding low power consumption and minimal component size.

 

AvnetThis new addition to the Avnet ecosystem uses leading technology from Nordic Semiconductor to provide engineers and developers with NB-IoT/LTE-M, GPS and Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) wireless connectivity in one of the smallest packages on the market.

 

“To tap the true potential of IoT, engineers must be able to minimize the size and power usage of their devices without compromising on functionality,” said Andy Wong, senior vice president, Design and Solutions Services, Avnet Asia. “Our new module takes advantage of some of the industry’s best SiP and SoC technology from Nordic Semiconductor to strike that balance for engineers. The AVT9152 is ideal for IoT applications when low power and small size are at a premium and is the latest addition to Avnet’s robust technology ecosystem.”

 

The AVT9152 module has been developed to support a variety of applications, including beacons for COVID-19 contact tracing, logistics and asset tracking, vending machines, kiosk terminals, medical devices and smart building automation. These applications demand wireless connectivity and power efficiency without sacrificing a device’s scale. Avnet delivers this complete package by leveraging Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF9160 low power System-in-Package (SiP) and nRF52840 Bluetooth 5.2/Bluetooth LE advanced multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC).

 

The nRF52840 Bluetooth 5.2/Bluetooth LE advanced multiprotocol SoC features a 64MHz, 32-bit Arm Cortex M4 processor with a floating-point unit (FPU) which, alongside the nRF9160 SiP’s Arm Cortex-M33 processor, ensures the module can offer ample computational power to support a range of complex and processor-intensive IoT applications.

 

The module offers a high degree of flexibility and scalability for IoT product development while shortening time-to-market. Completing an IoT design can be as straightforward as connecting a power source, sensors, and an antenna to the module.
