u blox delivers secure automotive telematics modules

u-blox (SIX: UBXN), a global leader in wireless and positioning modules and chips, has announced the TOBY-L4 series of Automotive Grade telematics modules, the company said.

The series integrates LTE, UMTS and GSM connectivity with a powerful embedded processor, enabling a wide range of applications on a single device.

Connectivity is at the heart of the TOBY-L4 LTE Cat 6 modules, providing full gateway capabilities in a single device capable of delivering up to 300Mbit/s data rates with carrier aggregation capability. Its extremely small 248-pin Land Grid Array (LGA) format measuring just 24.8mm by 35.6mm by 2.6mm meets the size/weight/power limitations of in-car applications.

TOBY-L4 supports both voice and data in the form of LTE, UMTS/DC-HSPA+, GSM, SMS and Voice (VoLTE and CSFB). With support for eCall (operating also at +95°C for at least 2 minutes) and ERA Glonass, the module meets all the industry and carrier requirements in place today and is future-proofed for all automotive OEM´s key regions.

Manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites, the modules are qualified to ISO 16750 covering systems installed in vehicles, making it ideal for automotive OEMs.
