Longer battery life targeting up to 10 years; Superior coverage for IoT devices underground and deep inside buildings; and Reduced module and deployment cost. Sierra Wireless’ HL78 embedded modules use the ALT1250 radio baseband chipset from strategic partner Altair. “The strength of our ongoing partnership with Sierra Wireless helped us rapidly integrate and certify our ALT1250 chipset into the compact HL78 modules,” said Ilan Reingold, Vice President, Business Development and Marketing at Altair Semiconductor (A Sony Group Company). “The comprehensive market-leading efficiency of the HL78 modules will be the catalyst for a new generation of IoT applications.” AirPrime® HL78 modules deliver best-in-class power performance, extending the life of battery-operated devices by 5-10 times compared to other available LTE-M/NB-IoT modules. This new level of ultra-low power consumption, with improved wake-up and sleep mode responsiveness, makes HL78 the module of choice for any power-constrained IoT application. In addition to low-power performance unique to the HL78 design, the modules integrate GNSS tracking capability, security and an embedded SIM in a new compact CF3® size (18mm x15mm) that is pin-to-pin compatible with other HL Series modules. Customers have the flexibility to deploy the same device on global LTE-M (Cat-M1/eMTC) and NB-IoT (Cat-NB1) networks, with support for more than 20 LTE frequency bands in addition to optional 2G fallback. Built-in security, including HTTPS, secure socket, secure boot and free unlimited firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updates from the AirVantage® device management IoT Platform, helps customers ensure HL78 deployments are future-proof and secure.
