Altair Semiconductor gets its fifth operator certification in the past year for its dual-mode cellular IoT Chipset, ALT1250. The leading provider of Internet of Things chipsets is now globally certified, with 15 carrier certifications dating back to 2018.



How Altair's ALT1250 is changing the IoT game?


Altair Semiconductor's ALT1250 is a narrowband cellular IoT chipset with integrated GNSS/GPS capability. The module supports both Release 13 standards - CAT-M1 and NB1 and includes a wideband RF front-end supporting a wide range of combinations of LTE bands within a single hardware design. It integrates an LTE baseband processor, RF transceiver, PMU, memory, PAs, filters and antenna switch, a GNSS and a cellular-based location engine, as well as an IoT-optimized security framework. The chipset has ultra-low power consumption in a variety of modes, including 3GPP PSM and eDRX, enabling more than 10 years of battery life. It is available in a package measuring less than 100 mm2 in size and is ideal for many IoT applications - including asset tracking, vehicle monitoring, and wearable devices. The ALT1250 chipset is designed to operate with rechargeable Li-ion and prime batteries.

Altair says its dual-mode cellular IoT chipsets provide low power consumption which enables a long battery life. The commercially available chipsets feature a hardware-based security framework and an integrated SIM (iUICC), MCU, and GNSS appropriated for industrial and commercial IoT applications. Altair's dual-mode cellular IoT chipsets are the most advanced in the country.



IoT product manufacturers can use the ALT1250 to design and manufacture connected devices for global markets without having to create alternate product versions for different markets or global regions.

The 15 CAT-M and NB-IoT carrier certifications of the ALT1250 chipset or ALT1250-based products include AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Softbank, KDDI, Docomo, Deutsche Telecom, Vodafone and Telstra. Besides, Altair reports, ALT1250-based products are approved by most operator networks that accept GCF or PTCRB certifications.



Deutsche Telekom, one of the world’s leading mobile operators, is currently developing a portfolio of certified chipset modules that will allow end-users to add their devices to the network. Their certified LTE-M chipset, ALT1250, will allow for interoperability, faster time-to-market, wide deployment options, and reduced operating costs.
