Chipset from Sony Semiconductor Israel to transform IoT landscape

Sony Semiconductor Israel announced the commercial availability of its ALT1350 wireless System on Chip (SoC) for cellular IoT. LPWA cellular modules, designed by AM Telecom and Fibocom, are now available for sampling, with mass production set for the first half of 2024.

The Altair ALT1350 is a cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT SoC that integrates a low-power MCU, sensor hub, security, iSIM and sub-GHz LPWA transceiver. The company says that eDRX connectivity and low power consumption offer up to 10 times longer battery life than previous generations.

According to Nohik Semel, the CEO of Sony Semiconductor Israel, this SoC enables applications in various sectors like smart cities, logistics, health devices and wearables. Semel adds that it ushers in an era of seamless connectivity where battery efficiency is no longer a worry.

“We are excited to be working with our partners to bring this SoC to the market and help them build innovative products,” says Semel.

Sony notes that the ALT1350 chipset offers connectivity options for various industries. It functions as a low-power cellular modem, mesh device and router, with multiple backup choices. The company asserts that it is ideal for asset tracking and provides rich features and performance in a single-chip solution.

Jin Gyu Lee, the CMO of AM Telecom, says that developing our connectivity module and network device based on the ALT1350 chipset has been a valuable experience. This collaboration provides a significant advantage in LTE network coverage and cost-effectiveness by combining sub-GHz LPWA and LTE-M processing on a single SoC with the ALT1350.

Sony Semiconductor Israel says it offers low-power, cost-efficient chipsets for industrial and consumer IoT applications like trackers, smart meters and wearables. Their cellular IoT chipsets are deployed on networks worldwide.

In 2023, Sony Semiconductor Solutions (SSS) introduced IMX992 and IMX993 short-wavelength infrared image sensors for industrial use. These sensors feature small pixel sizes for a compact design while maintaining high resolution.
