PHOENIX, US - Media OutReach - 8 December 2020 -
Leading global technology solutions provider Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) today expanded its product line
for rapid IoT development with the launch of the AVT9152 module, designed for a range of embedded applications requiring
cellular connectivity yet demanding low power consumption and minimal component
size. This new addition to the Avnet ecosystem uses leading technology from
Nordic Semiconductor to provide engineers and developers with NB-IoT/LTE-M, GPS
and Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) wireless connectivity in one of the
smallest packages on the market.
module has been developed to support a variety of applications, including
beacons for COVID-19 contact tracing, logistics and asset tracking, vending
machines, kiosk terminals, medical devices and smart building automation. These
applications demand wireless connectivity and power efficiency without sacrificing
a device's scale. Avnet delivers this complete package by leveraging Nordic
Semiconductor's nRF9160 low power System-in-Package (SiP) and nRF52840
Bluetooth 5.2/Bluetooth LE advanced multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC).
"To tap the true
potential of IoT, engineers must be able to minimize the size and power usage
of their devices without compromising on functionality," said Andy Wong, senior
vice president, Design and Solutions Services, Avnet
Asia. "Our new module takes advantage of some of the industry's best SiP and
SoC technology from Nordic Semiconductor to strike that balance for engineers.
The AVT9152 is ideal for IoT applications when low power and small size are at
a premium and is the latest addition to Avnet's robust technology ecosystem."
Bluetooth 5.2/Bluetooth LE advanced multiprotocol SoC features a 64MHz, 32-bit
Arm® Cortex® M4 processor with floating point
unit (FPU) which, alongside the nRF9160 SiP's Arm Cortex-M33 processor,
ensures the module can offer ample computational power to support a range of
complex and processor-intensive IoT applications.
offers a high degree of flexibility and scalability for IoT product development
while shortening time-to-market. Completing an IoT design can be as
straightforward as connecting a power source, sensors, and an antenna to the
Evaluation Kit provides simplified IoT application development with an
end-to-end Cloud connection platform via Avnet's enterprise ready IoTConnect Platform. It also includes Avnet's
global eUICC SIM with 50MB/3-month trial service. The evaluation kit is
available globally and features a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, as
well as pressure, temperature, relative humidity, ambient light, and motion
(PIR) sensors. For more information visit http://avnet.me/AVT9152NPI.
