Smaller IoT form factor modules introduced by Telit to meet demand for wearable solutions

Yossi Moscovitz of Telit

The xE310 family of miniature IoT (Internet of Things) modules has been launched today by TelitWith initial models planned in LTE-M, NB-IoT and European 2G, the new form factor will enable Telit to meet growing demand for ultra-small, high-performance modules for wearable medical devices, fitness trackers, industrial sensors, smart metering, and other mass-production, massive deployment applications. Telit will start shipping xE310 modules in Q4 this year.

The xE310 family is said to be one of the smallest LGA form factors available in the market with a flexible perimeter footprint supporting various sizes from compact to smaller than 200 mm2. The xE310’s 94 pads include spares to provide Telit the flexibility to quickly deliver support for additional features as technologies, applications and markets evolve. Spares can be used for modules supporting Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or enhanced location technologies – in addition to cellular – while maintaining compatibility with cellular only models. They can also be used for additional connections that may be required for new 5G-enabled features.

The new form factor also gives original equipment makers (OEMs) greater flexibility, efficiency and yield during design and manufacturing. The xE310 family provides easy PCB routing while minimising manufacturing process issues such as planarity and bending. The unique circular pad facilitates correct package orientation for automated assembly.

“The new xE310 is among the smallest form factors available today despite being packed with technologies and capabilities that developers and designers say they need to enable tomorrow’s IoT applications,” said Yossi Moscovitz, Telit president of products and solutions. “With this new form factor, xE310 modules can comfortably take IoT integration across all industries seamlessly from current standards, way into 5G many years from now; much the same way the standard setting xE910 has done over the past 10 years.

To learn more about the new xE310 family, visit the Telit stand 431 at IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on October 16-18.
