The new Cinterion PXS8 Multimode cellular machine-tomachine (M2M) module offers a smart solution for wireless connectivity today and in the future. PXS8 supports both CDMA and GSM/HSPA+ technology standards, eliminating the need for multiple designs and redundant hardware for worldwide M2M solutions.

Gemalto M2M provides the PHS8 (HSPA+ only) and the PVS8 (CDMA only) module as well allowing room for growth to 4G cellular technology in the exact same form factor, to support highest flexibility and a future proof design for our customers. With the latest technology, PXS8 is optimized for high bandwidth and allows speeds up to 14.4 Mbps for downlink and 5.7 Mbps for uplink. By enabling a full range of M2M functions and features, the PXS8 offers an ideal communication solution for the challenging requirements of a variety of global M2M applications, such as ruggedized mobile computing, security solutions or medical equipment. Two antenna pads enable diversity support allowing PXS8 to provide improved dataspeeds even under fluctuating 3G network conditions. The GPS antenna path is optimized for elimination of blanking on GPS for consistent performance.

The unique type of LGA technology enables optimized heat dissipation that prevents warpage. It gives our customers the freedom to select the most beneficial soldering paste for each individual application. Like all Cinterion products, the PXS8 comes with full type approval (FTA) and is certified by the largest carriers worldwide.
