Recently, the three major operators have announced the test and commercial time of NB-IoT. At the same time, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is also promoting NB-IoT standardization, and put forward new requirements for NB-IoT modules in terms of appearance, packaging, and pin definition. It is foreseeable that NB-IoT will usher in a wave of outbreaks.
The outbreak of NB-IoT is inseparable from the support of chip manufacturers. So which chip manufacturers have launched NB-IoT chips? Xiaobian conducted relevant information collection and collation, and asked people in the industry that it is currently known to launch NB. -There are 7 manufacturers of IoT chips, excluding those who have announced their investment in NB-IoT chip development, but there are no specific models.
The chip of Huawei NB-IoT is Boudica, an ultra-low-power SoC chip, based on ARM Cortex-M0 core, and will be equipped with Huawei LiteOS embedded IoT operating system.
Quectel BC95 module based on Boudica 120
XMM 7115, which supports the NB-IoT standard. Samples are expected in the second half of 2016. XMM 7315 supports LTE Category M and NB-IoT standards. A single chip integrates LTE modem and IA application processor. Commercialization is expected in 2017.
FIBOCOM is based on MM7115 module N510
MDM9206, supports Cat-M (eMTC) and NB-IoT.
Quectel BG96 module based on MDM9206
The nRF91 series is Nordic's NB-IoT cellular technology product. Samples are expected in the second half of 2017 and supply in 2018.
