SMT cellular M2M communication module for automotive use
June 15, 2012 // Julien Happich
Cinterion launched what it claims to be the world's smallest surface mount automotive M2M module providing global voice and data communications for vehicle telematics.
The AGS2, measuring 27.6x18.8mm is Cinterion’s first offering as an Associate Partner in the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance program, which provides OEMs and developers with the advanced hardware, software, firmware, tools and systems integration support needed to bring leading-edge technology solutions to market faster.
The AGS2 Land Grid Array surface mount module was designed for cost effective vehicle telematics such as fleet management solutions, car alarms and eCall applications. The module features a secure Internet protocol connection, digital audio and advanced voice technology with voice prompts, which can be crucial during emergencies. Quad-band capability helps eliminate coverage disruptions, providing reliable communications even when roaming between counties and across different carrier networks. The module’s advanced jamming detection feature strengthens theft prevention while its low power consumption helps extend vehicle battery life. AGS2 development kits are available immediately with commercial production starting now.
