RYZ014A All-in-One Single-Mode LTE Category M1 Module

Pre-tested and pre-certified, RYZ014A from Renesas Electronics is an all-in-one, single-mode LTE category M1 module with worldwide deployment and roaming capability. Optimized for wireless IoT networks, this device is one cost-effective solution that simplifies the global development and deployment process by eliminating the need for gateways.  

With this Renesas RYZ014A module, customers need not worry about design and certification issues for building a wireless IoT solution as it comes with RF regulatory certification, PTCRB/GCF certification, and carrier certification for the customer’s network operator of choice. It has been certified with all major radio frequency regulations in the world as well as with leading network operators in North America, APAC, and Europe.

Sequans Communications has joined hands with Renesas Electronics and is offering the Monarch LTE CAT-M1 hardware and software technology that is used in the module. The device has been combined with various components like power ICs, Li-ion battery charger, light-to-digital sensor, and multiple RA family MCUs. These combinations will enable customers to quickly implement complete remote industrial process monitoring and automatic plant watering systems with an LTE Connection.

The device can be used in metering (electricity/gas/water, automated meter reading) smart home (HVAC, thermostats) infrastructure (charge poles, parking systems) industry (pumps) agriculture wearables, trackers, etc. The new RYZ014A module and the RYZ014A-EVK evaluation kits are available from the company website.
