Telit Wireless has introduced the HE910, which it claims is the world’s smallest module featuring five-band HSPA+. The module can thus be used in any 3G network worldwide without the need for regional variants.
The land-grid-array (LGA) form factor with a footprint of 795mm2 is suitable for compact devices such as e-readers or PDAs, with data-rich multimedia applications.
In 3G mode, it supports all five existing frequency bands: 850, 900, 1700, 1900 and 2100MHz. Additionally, it provides ubiquitous 2G coverage with quad band GPRS and Edge class 33. It eliminates the need for individual country versions and part numbers of the module, featuring different frequency allocations. On the other hand, it helps users whose portable devices require worldwide coverage because regionally differing frequency bands are no longer an issue.
The LGA package has a size of 28.2 by 28.2 by 2.6mm.
With transfer rates HSDPA of 14.4Mbit/s (Cat 10) and HSUPA of 5.7Mbit/s (Cat 6), it is particularly suited for devices with high throughput applications such as mobile computing, in-car telematics, PDAs, e-readers, tablet PCs and consumer electronics in general.
Future firmware releases provide the possibility to increase the throughput without having to make changes to the hardware.
