u-blox has announced the LISA-C200 wireless voice and data modem supporting the CDMA2000 1xRTT mobile communications standard. The LISA-C2 series provides dual-band CDMA2000 1xRTT data and voice communication in a compact SMT form factor. They are fully qualified and certified modules, featuring extremely low power consumption and a rich set of Internet protocols.
LISA-C2 modules are designed for M2M and automotive applications such as fleet management, automatic meter reading (AMR), people and asset tracking, surveillance and security, and Point of Sales (PoS) terminals. The new modem is based on CDMA technology gained through the recent acquisition of San Diego-based Fusion Wireless.
Packaged in u-blox' micro-miniature LISA LCC (leadless chip carrier), LISA-C200 offers pin/pad compatibility with the LEON GSM/GPRS and LISA W-CDMA module families.
LISA-C200 supports analog and digital voice in the 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands, up to 153 kb/s forward and reverse data communications, and OTA provisioning methods (OMA/DM, FUMO, OTASP and OTAPA). The modem includes an embedded TCP- and UDP/IP stack and is scheduled for certification by US CDMA operators Sprint, Verizon, and Aeris.
LISA-C200 completes the u-blox family of layout compatible modems for CDMA, W-CDMA & GSM, enabling u-blox customers to create a single hardware design that supports multiple standards throughout the world.
First customer samples of LISA-C200 will be available in Q1, 2012. For more information visit u-blox.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
