CAT-M1 IoT Chipset with CAT-1 Fallback

The ALT1210 is an LTE CAT-M1 IoT chipset with CAT-1 fallback featuring downlink speeds up to 1 Mbps, with extremely low power consumption, and is software upgradeable to single antenna LTE CAT-1. ALT1210 is highly integrated with an on-chip PMU, DDR memory and a low-power application layer with a robust security framework for customer-developed applications, enabling designs with just a few external components.

Altair’s OneSKUTM   RF Technology enables supporting multiple LTE bands with a single device SKU, simplifying global IoT deployments.

Featuring a rich set of host, peripheral and sensor interfaces, ALT1210 is ideal for a variety of IoT applications such as wearable devices, video cameras, industrial devices, and more.
