Fibocom’s SC126-NA 4G smart module has received certification from a leading carrier in North America.

The LTE entry-level IoT SoC module is tailored for the AIoT market. Receiving the certification has verified the capability of its operation in the local telecom operator’s network, further accelerating the deployment of AIoT applications in the regional market.

Integrated with a quad-core processor and leveraged 11nm technology, the smart module is designed for the entry-level intelligent IoT market. It can provide an integrated, seamless connectivity service to a range of AIoT terminals including smart wireless payment terminals, industrial handhelds and 4G PTT-over-cellular terminals by gaining the certification.

The global artificial intelligence IoT market is projected to reach high demand with the expansion of AI technology. As an essential in fostering AIoT market growth, smart modules empower IoT devices with mobile computing capabilities, allowing real-time data processing and analysis, reducing the decision-making timeline in critical scenarios for industrial users and improving overall efficiency. The validation of the SC126-NA smart module can shorten the certification cycle of terminal devices and ease the investment concerns for IoT projects.

Notably, the module is equipped with an open Android operating system with multimedia processing capabilities. It can be connected to an FHD (1920 x 1080 at 30fps) touchscreen, supporting multi-channel camera input, plus H.265 and H.264 encoding and decoding capabilities and integrating with facial recognition algorithms.

Packaged in LCC + LGA form factor, the module offers flexibility to develop terminal devices for various markets. In addition, it can provide precise positioning and navigation with GNSS.

Furthermore, with the scalability to support a set of interfaces including Mipi, USB, uart, SPI and I2C, it provides smart wireless connectivity for applications that require the integration of cellular communication and multimedia features.

With the expanding landscape of AIoT applications in the global market, Fibocom ( developed a series of regional versions of SC126 to support the frequency bands in Europe and Apac, as well as a wifi only version to satisfy market demands.
