Quad‑band LTE Cat M1 module in a 16x26mm form factor

May 02, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Designed with a 16x26mm form factor, the quad-band LTE Cat M1 module u-blox SARA‑R410M is what manufacturer u-blox claims to be the world's smallest for the rollout of IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.

Designers can easily migrate from u-blox’ existing 2G and 3G modules to take advantage of LTE Cat M1, without changing their circuit board designs.
Innovations included in the SARA‑R10M design allow customers to use a single hardware version globally.  Depending on the installed software, SARA‑R410M broadens the market to multi-regions. Thanks to its quad-band support, this device reaches all of North America to include not only the USA and Canada but also Mexico (B2/B4/B5/B12), or can also service markets in South America, Australia and New Zealand (B3/B5/B8/B28).
Operators and customers can deliver future firmware updates over-the-air with u-blox’s uFOTA client/server solution that uses LWM2M, a light and compact protocol that is ideal for IoT applications. The SARA‑R410M includes power‑save mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) that together deliver battery life of up to 10 years. Operating temperature range is from -40 to +85°C.
