Sony Semiconductor Israel, a leading provider of cellular IoT chipsets, has announced that its advanced Altair ALT1350 Wireless System on Chip (SoC) is now commercially available. Altair ALT1350 is the first cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT SoC to adopt a low-power application MCU, a sensor-hub for data collection and processing, enhanced security, integrated SIM (iSIM) location technology, and an additional sub-GHz LPWA/FAN customizable transceiver and NTN communication options in a single chip.

The ALT1350 chipset promises unparalleled connectivity options and can support connectivity choices for all industries and markets. In smart cities and utility spaces, the ALT1350 can perform as a low-power cellular modem, a low-power mesh device, and a router between cellular and mesh networks as well as provide multiple connectivity backup options. The rich feature set and performance make it an ideal solution for single-chip asset-tracking applications, bundling multi-tier location services optimized for battery operated devices.
