Kyocera Wireless used this week’s BREW conference in San Diego to take the wraps off two new BREW-enabled modules – the 300 and the 1xD. The modules allow customers to reduce cost by running integrated BREW applications within the embedded module. This reduces the need for external application processors in M2M solutions.
“In leveraging the … BREW platform within our new modules, we are creating additional value and versatility for our customers,” said Dean Fledderjohn, general manager of the M2M product line at Kyocera Wireless.
The 300 module integrates Qualcomm chipsets in a small but rugged form factor and delivers lower power consumption, extended operating temperatures and multimode assisted and integrated autonomous GPS.
The 1xD module provides a cheaper platform for telemetry and other data-only applications that don’t need GPS or voice features. The module’s reduced power consumption, streamlined feature-set and small size reduce the total cost of ownership and make it ideal for remote metering/monitoring and alarm applications.
