Product description

The Cinterion AH3 module is the latest in a long history of successful automotive grade products for enhanced automotive applications. It is the first variant of a new 3G automotive platform to incorporate dedicated features such as antenna diagnostics, extended temperature range, SIM access profile and a configurable RLS function for jamming detection.

State-of-the-art chipsets with 45 nanometer technology ensure a long product lifecycle and highest reliability even under rugged conditions. An intelligent single-sided design also provides superior heat dissipation characteristics. With an 80-pin B2B connector, the Cinterion AH3 enables flexible mounting for easy design-ins and testing. In addition, it offers the most advanced embedded GPS capabilities with three antennas for HSPA diversity and concurrent GPS tracking to avoid GPS blanking. Based on the latest HSPA+ technology, AH3 is optimized for high bandwidth speeds up to 14.4 Mbps for downlink and 5.7 Mbps for uplink.

AH3 comes in two versions: AH3-US which supports AWS band in Northern America, and AH3-W which adds 900 MHz to cover all other world regions and to ensure true global roaming.
