According to data released by GSMA, there will be 3.2 billion IoT cellular connections in 2024. To this end Qualcomm Technologies is announcing a cutting-edge product that it claims can drive the growth of the mobile IoT: the Qualcomm 212 LTE IoT modem, presented as the single-mode NB2 (NB-IoT) chipset with the highest energy efficiency in the world".
Energy efficiency is a priority for IoT devices, which must last for years. With a request for quiescent current lower than the micro-amp (1uA), the energy efficiency architecture of the Qualcomm 212 LTE IoT modem promises extremely low average consumption. To support a wide range of batteries and ensure a longer life of the device in the field, the modem combines very low system voltage cutting with reserves to adapt the energy use according to the different power supply levels of the source allowing the final devices to reach levels of power supply up to 2.2 volts.
The Qualcomm 212 LTE IoT modem will help usher in a new era for IoT applications worldwide, especially for those that require deep connectivity within buildings combined with low power consumption, such as battery-powered IoT devices that they must be operational for 15 or more years, "says Vieri Vanghi, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Europe. Its low energy consumption, compact form factor and low cost will greatly facilitate OEMs in creating the new generation of low energy IoT devices ".
