Avnet Launches Cellular Module for IoT-Application-Development

IoT-Application-Development: Global technology solutions provider Avnet just launched the AVT9152 module. It is designed for a range of embedded applications that require cellular connectivity and demand low power consumption as well as minimal component size. This addition to the Avnet ecosystem uses technology from Nordic Semiconductor to provide NB-IoT/LTE-M, GPS and Bluetooth LE wireless connectivity in one of the smallest packages on the market.

One of the goals of the modules development is the support a variety of applications –among them beacons for COVID-19 contact tracing, logistics and asset tracking, vending machines, kiosk terminals, medical devices and smart building automation. Applications that demand wireless connectivity and power efficiency without sacrificing a device’s scale. To be able to deliver this complete package, Avnet leverages Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF9160 low power System-in-Package (SiP) and nRF52840 Bluetooth 5.2/Bluetooth LE advanced multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC).

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 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. Avnet Launches Cellular Module for IoT-Application-Development The AVT9152 Evaluation Kit allows simple IoT application development via Avnet’s enterprise-ready IoTConnect Platform. It also includes Avnet’s global eUICC SIM with 50MB/three-month trial service. The evaluation kit is available globally and features a three-axis accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope, as well as pressure, temperature, relative humidity, ambient light and motion passive infrared (PIR) sensors.
