Wireless communications 3G/2G cellular module comes in 16x26x3mm 96-pin LGA package u-blox’ SARA-U201 3G/2G cellular module supports both 2G and 3G connectivity from a 16x26x3mm, 96-pin LGA package. The voice and data capable device provides 5-band UMTS, quadband GSM, and has global radio regulatory approvals. It is pin-to-pin and form factor compatible with its 2G counterpart SARA-G350. It includes UART and USB data communication interfaces and can be seamlessly combined with any u-blox GNSS modules and chips, thanks to its pre-integrated AssistNow client. Software stack and protocol support includes a dual stack IPv4 / IPv6, embedded TCP/IP, Ethernet over USB and BIP/eSIM support. u-blox www.u-blox.com Dual SMD antenna caters for LF and NFC Premo Group has designed a single-package 3D-coil antenna with dual functionality, suitable both for Low Frequency (125 kHz) and High Frequency applications (13.56MHz). Embedded in the 17.5x16.0x4.0mm 2D1D15 Series are 2D orthogonal coils featuring high surface resistance NiZn ferrite core material (over 10Mohm/mm) with medium initial permeability. This provide a very stable performance in a wide range of temperature (-40ºC to +85ºC). The 2D1D15 Series is offered with 4.77mH at 125kHz and 6uH at 13.56MHz as standard inductance values. This antenna can be ordered with custom inductance parameters to fit the desired performance. The new antenna meets AEC-Q-200, one of the most restrictive quality standards for electric components in automotive applications. Premo www.grupopremo.com Modular router connects railway passengers to Internet The NB3800 Railway Router is Netmodule’s latest product addressing passenger WiFi and infotainment applications. The mobile access is accomplished through multiple LTE modems as well as through IEEE 802.11ac WiFi modules. In addition to its wireless capabilities the Railway Router is equipped with five Ethernet interfaces; two of them have gigabit bandwith. What’s more, the product also comes with solid-state disks (SSD) with capacities up to 1 terabyte, enabling the operator to provide offline content such as travelrelated information, service information or entertainment material. Another novelty form Netmodule is the NB3711, an expanded and extended version of the proven NB3710 Router. Like the NB3800, it is designed for railway deployment, connecting the passenger’s smartphones and tablets via WiFi and LTE to the Internet. As an additional option the NB3711 can be equipped with a GSM-R module, enabling it to connect directly to the railway operator’s communications infrastructure. CAN and IBIS interface modules are available to monitor the on-board electronic systems as well as to the passenger information systems. In addition, a GNSS satellite navigation module enables the operator to precisely locate the vehicle. All NetModule routers are implemented as modular systems, enabling system integrators to configure individual solutions. For instance, multiple LTE wireless modules can be utilised to achieve channel bundling or transparent hand-over between providers. The NetModule routers will be exhibited at the Embedded World trade fair (February 23 through 25 in Nuremberg).
