Nordic Semiconductor's nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP) LTE-M/NB-IoT and GPS cellular IoT module entered final volume production phase having successfully passed a series of major qualifications and certifications that include GCF, PTCRB, FCC (U.S. & LAT AM), CE (E.U.), ISED (Canada), ACMA (Australia & New Zealand), TELEC/RA (Japan), NCC (Taiwan), and IMDA (Singapore). The nRF9160 SiP integrates everything a cellular connection and IoT application may need beyond requiring just an external battery, SIM, and antenna. 

 

The nRF9160 SiP’s modem and MCU are designed from the ground-up for optimized power performance in IoT systems enabling nRF9160 SiP-based devices to stay connected to a cellular network with unparalleled low power consumption. Along with this, Nordic also offers nRF9160 SiP on a powerful single-board Development Kit (DK) for the IoT application developer. The DK comes with free development tool support, a Cloud demonstration platform, and a Software Development Kit (SDK) in GitHub with sample applications which provides a great starting point for product development.
