Fibocom has unveiled a multi-mode LTE smart module to drive digital transformation across AIoT industries.

Empowered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon SM6225 chip, the SC228 module delivers CPU processing performance and power efficiency backed by the features of an octa-core processor and high-level graphics processor.

Target markets include smart retailing, smart wearable cameras, industrial IoT and in-vehicle infotainment.

Integrated with a 6nm processor, the module uses the CPU and GPU to deliver multimedia performance while conserving power. Compatible with frequency bands worldwide, it also supports Bluetooth and dual-band wifi for short-distance wireless communication.

The integration of AI and IoT is reshaping the way decision-makers from various industries operate and respond to real-time information. The integrated SC228 can offer a comprehensive option for industrial users to improve product performance and facilitate the decision-making process.

It can support the smooth running of AI algorithms, which ensures the terminals realise a bunch of functionalities such as facial recognition and human-machine interaction.

In terms of multimedia processing, the module has a low-power island DSP (digital signal processor) for sensors and audio. Furthermore, it also supports multi-camera input and output with up to three of them working simultaneously.

To cater to diverse IoT applications, the module is designed with interfaces including Mipi, USB, uart, SPI and I2C to help users develop the terminals flexibly.

In software design, it is preset with an upgradable Android 14 operating system to cope with evolving software innovations, which can help users quickly meet the requirements for Google Mobile Service certification and continuous development for long lifecycle terminals. Notably, the premium smart module is also built-in with GNSS for fast and accurate positioning for mobile scenarios.

“AI-driven productivity is inevitably evolving as an essential to extend the capabilities of IoT devices, significantly improving the operational efficiency by enriching the IoT device with edge computing,” said Eden Chen, general manager at Fibocom ( “We are pleased to be at the forefront of the AIoT market to provide a comprehensive, highly integrated SC228 smart module for various industries. Looking forward, we are optimistic to unleash the interconnected intelligence with our powerful smart module portfolio.”

Engineering sample will be available towards the end of the year.
