“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,”

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, 2012.
