In addition to GNSS functionality, the ALT1250’s high level of integration eliminates the need for most external components required to design a cellular IoT module. Approximately the size of a shirt button and less than 100mm2 in size, an ALT1250 module features support for both Release 13 standards – CAT-M1 and NB1, and includes a wideband RF front-end supporting unlimited combinations of LTE bands within a single hardware design, a multi-layered and hardware-based security framework, an internal application MCU subsystem and packaging that enables standard, low-cost PCB manufacturing.

“Location determination is essential in many IoT applications – including asset tracking, vehicle monitoring and wearable devices. Satellite positioning is the most accurate method for doing that,” said Eran Eshed, Co-founder and VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Altair. “Integrating GNSS functionality in the ALT1250 significantly reduces the overall cost of IoT solutions while offering state of the art, low power satellite positioning capabilities in a miniature package.”
