The new multi-wireless modem is a fully integrated solution, combining the advantages of energy-saving LTE cellular connectivity and Bluetooth 5 technology. This unique combination enables new use cases with cost-effective, long-range Bluetooth sensors, all of which can be connected to the next generation LTE network in a much simpler and more cost-effective solution architecture.
The Pinnacle 100 seamlessly integrates a high-performance Cortex M4F controller with a hostless Zephyr RTOS-based software implementation, full Bluetooth 5 functionality and LTE CAT-M1/NB-IoT capabilities - all fully certified. This intelligent modem also offers complete antenna flexibility with pre-integrated and external options such as Laird's Revie Flex LTE and NB-IoT antenna.
This unique combination of features enables new applications combining multiple long-range, meshed Bluetooth sensors connected to the cloud via the emerging global low-power LTE network. The combination of Bluetooth sensors with a single intelligent LTE device enables customers to optimize sensor coverage and manage wireless data with a simple, cost-effective architecture, not to mention reducing time-to-market and providing real-time information.
Several low-cost development kits will be available soon to simplify application development and provide everything needed for initial evaluation, including a standalone Bluetooth 5 environment sensor, a SIM card with free data, an accompanying smartphone app for deployment and a complete end-to-end demo to see your Bluetooth sensor data in the cloud in minutes.
