Telit's Miniature ME310G1 IoT Module | Symmetry Blog
Based on Qualcomm’s 9205 LTE modem, Telit’s ME310G1 module is the latest addition to their LTE Cat M1 product portfolio. Ideal for IoT applications requiring compact size, long battery life, and low BOM costs–the ME310G1 supports integrated GNSS and worldwide LTE bands, along with a 2G fallback variant for applications requiring global deployments.
ME310G1 LTE UE Cat M1/NB2
Compliant with 3GPP Release 14, supporting LTE Cat M1/NB2–the ME310G1 offers lower power, higher data rates, and better performance for mobile applications. To achieve low power consumption, the ME310G1 uses Power Saving Mode (PSM) and extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) to direct devices to wake up periodically to transmit data and then transition back to a state of dormancy. The ME310G1 offers maximum coupling loss (MCL) to improve coverage and support better in-building penetration. Additionally, the ME310G1 offers up to 1 Mbps in uplink and 588 Kbps in downlink in Cat M1 mode.
ME310G1 Offers a Compact Footprint
One of the biggest advantages of the ME310G1 is its footprint. The LTE-only variant is under 200 mm2, whereas the variant that includes 2G fallback measures to nearly 300 mm2. The ME310G1’s compact size and low power consumption makes it suitable for developing ultra-small battery-powered products such as wearables and medical devices.
xE310 Family of Miniature IoT Modules
The ME310G1 belongs to Telit’s xE310 family of modules which are pin-to-pin compatible with one another. Offering the same footprint eliminates the need to redesign the PCB and decreases development time. The xE310 family supports multi-technology modules, making it easier for design engineers to update technologies as per the requirements.
