NORDIC SEMICONDUCTOR End-to-end cellular IoT solution with support for DECT NR+ (NR+) is based on the award-winning nRF91 Series Systems-in-Package (SiPs), bringing simplicity, stability and cost efficiency through chipsets, modules, software and services designed, controlled, and supplied by Nordic. This is the first time a fully inclusive, world-class cellular IoT solution has been offered through a single company. IoT solution with support for NR+ now comprises three nRF91 Series SiPs including two new devices, the nRF9161 and nRF9131, evaluation and development tools, development software, nRF Cloud Services, and world-class support. NR+ is the world’s first non-cellular 5G technology standard.
The nRF9161 SiP is a complete, globally pre-certified SiP that makes it possible to select either cellular IoT connectivity using the secure and global cellular infrastructure or use NR+ to realize massive, ultra reliable private 5G networking, using a single device. New features introduced in the nRF9161 SiP modem firmware and on nRF Cloud help customers further reduce power consumption making the SiP ideal for use cases demanding the longest possible battery life. The new product also boasts enhanced GNSS and cell-based location performance, plus a range of other improvements.
The nRF9131 SiP is a feature-compatible alternative to the nRF9161 measuring half the size and offering greater flexibility in design and sourcing for high-volume businesses. By integrating the SoC and RF Front End in a mini-SiP, the nRF9131 eliminates major RF risks and simplifies the manufacturing process compared to the traditional use of chipset in high-volume designs.
