Surface Mount Technology to eliminate the need of board-to-board connectors or RF cables
Motorola has introduced the G30 GSM/GPRS LGA series of wireless modules, the latest addition to its machine-to-machine solutions portfolio.
Motorola has said that the new land grid array (LGA) module platform is suitable for the automated metering industry, as well as other machine-to-machine (M2M) segments including telematics, security and electronic point of sale.
According to the company, the G30 GSM/GPRS LGA modules feature compact dimensions of 32.2 x 20.8 x 3.4mm, its surface mount technology (SMT) eliminates the need of board-to-board connectors or RF cables, and it supports the 3GPP 7.05, 7.07 and 7.10 protocols and an additional set of Motorola proprietary commands including an internal TCP/IP stack. It also offers a programmable M2M application processor and FOTA (firmware over the air) capabilities for better flexibility.
Shamai Wasserman, vice president of strategy and business development at Motorola Israel and director of Motorola wireless modules business unit, said: The G30 is consistent with Motorola’s tradition as a wireless leader providing superior products that fulfill market requirements. This latest addition further strengthens Motorola’s commitment to the M2M market, serving its customers with the latest technological advancements to help them design cost effective and reliable solutions.
