Expansion of nRF91 Series cellular IoT devices

Renowned for their low power wireless connectivity solutions, Nordic Semiconductor has recently announced the expansion of its nRF91 Series cellular IoT devices. This expansion comes with the introduction of the new nRF9151 System-in-Package (SiP).

Enhancing Nordic’s End-to-End Cellular IoT Solution

The newly introduced nRF9151 further strengthens Nordic’s comprehensive cellular IoT solution. This all-inclusive solution covers hardware, software, tools, and nRF Cloud Services. With the nRF9151, Nordic offers advanced capabilities and seamless integration, aiming to significantly streamline the development process.

Reduced Footprint and New Power Class Support

The nRF9151 stands out as a compact, pre-certified, and highly integrated device. It incorporates a System-on-Chip (SoC), power management, and RF front-end, all of which are provided by Nordic Semiconductor. In comparison to its predecessors in the nRF91 Series, the nRF9151 is designed for enhanced supply chain resilience. The device manages to achieve a notable footprint reduction of 20%, which allows for the creation of more compact products without any compromise on performance. This is particularly advantageous for wearable devices, smart sensors, and other IoT applications that are constrained by space.

Alongside its compact size, the nRF9151 brings in support for Class 5 20dBm output power, which complements the nominal Class 3 23dBm. This enhancement provides developers with increased flexibility, as it simplifies the requirements for battery-powered products.

Addressing Market Demands and Challenges

The development of the nRF9151 is a strategic response to market demands and the need for solutions that can effectively tackle the challenges faced by customers. The nRF9151 aims to bridge a significant gap in the market, simplifying the development process, and reducing both power consumption and footprint. This strategic addition to the cellular IoT portfolio reaffirms Nordic’s commitment to offering innovative cellular IoT solutions and maintaining a proactive approach to staying ahead in the market.

In conclusion, the launch of the nRF9151 signifies a major step forward for Nordic Semiconductor. This move not only enhances their nRF91 Series cellular IoT devices but also reaffirms their commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that address market needs and customer challenges.
