“LISA leads the industry in terms of wireless modem size, power consumption and performance.” said Thomas Seiler, u-blox CEO. “LISA enables our global customers to design cutting-edge products that deliver a fast and secure broadband experience to consumers and professional end-users.”
The modules provide high performance with uplink data speeds of up to 5.7 Mb/s (HSUPA) and downlink data speeds of up to 7.2 Mb/s (HSDPA) using UMTS/WCDMA technology. LISA also supports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (2G). The module series comes in a compact 33.2 x 22.4 x 2.7 mm surface mount package.
The family includes variants supporting dual-band UMTS frequencies in EMEA/Asia and the Americas (900/2100MHz and 850/1900MHz) plus versions dedicated to data-only applications. All LISA modules are optimized to work with u-blox’ GPS receivers via direct interface. LISA follows u-blox’ highly successful LEON 2G module, and is layout compatible to enable mounting of either module on the same PCB footprint.
LISA is an ideal solution for ultra-portable devices requiring high speed wireless Internet access. In 2010, 10% of all mobile computers shipped will have broadband connectivity, a figure which is estimated to exceed 50% by 2014.
Samples and evaluation kit will be available in early Q1, 2011. Operator and standards bodies’ certification is in progress.
