Leading GPS positioning and wireless chip and module
manufacturer, u-blox announces the release of LISA-C200 wireless
voice and data modem supporting the CDMA2000 1xRTT mobile
communications standard. The low-cost, surface-mount module is
ideal for a wide range of M2M applications.
The new modem is based on CDMA technology gained through the
recent acquisition of San Diego-based Fusion Wireless.
Packaged in u-blox' micro-miniature LISA LCC (leadless chip
carrier), it offers pin/pad compatibility with the popular LEON
GSM/GPRS and LISA W-CDMA module families.
"Many of our UK customers have been asking for a wireless module
for the US market and the addition of the LISA-C200 now offers our
customers a complete range of wireless modules available in a pin
compatible form factor. The addition of the LISA-C200 means
that our UK customers can now design products to support all
popular mobile communication standards in the Americas," said
Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro. "With this
concept, our customers can create a single hardware design that
supports multiple standards throughout the world."
LISA-C200 supports analog and digital voice in the 800 MHz and
1900 MHz bands, up to 153 kb/s forward and reverse data
communications and OTA provisioning methods (OMA/DM, FUMO, OTASP
and OTAPA). The modem includes an embedded TCP- and UDP/IP stack
and is scheduled for certification by US CDMA operators Sprint,
Verizon and Aeris.
First customer samples of LISA-C200 will be available in Q1,
