Quectel CC660D-LS IoT-NTN module is built for Skylo’s satellite network

Skylo Certified Quectel CC660D LS IoT NTN Chip

Quectel recently announced the launch of the Quectel CC660D-LS IoT-NTN module, created in partnership with Skylo. Designed for two-way IoT (Internet of Things) applications this model supports the latest 3GPP Release 17 standards for IoT over non-terrestrial networks (NTN). Additionally, It can operate on L-band (1 to 2 GHz), and S-band (2 to 4 GHz) frequencies, making it ideal for asset tracking, fleet management, and agricultural and maritime uses. Last year, we wrote about Qualcomm 212S and 9205S satellite modems which were also developed in collaboration with Skylo. Quectel CC660D-LS IoT-NTN Satellite Module Specifications: Module Type – NTN satellite communication module Compliance – Supports 3GPP Rel-17 IoT-NTN Frequency Bands – Operates on L-band (B255) and S-band (B256/23) Internet Protocols – Abundant embedded Internet service protocols Power Supply – Supports low voltage power supply from 2.2–3.6 V Power Consumption – Ultra-low power usage Sensitivity – Super-high sensitivity Temperature Range – Extended […]

Ambarella N1 SoC brings Generative AI to the edge for video analytics, robotics, industrial applications

Ambarella N1

Ambarella has been working on adding support for generative AI and multi-modal large language models (LLMs) to its AI Edge processors including the new 50W N1 SoC series with server-grade performance and the 5W CV72S for mid-range applications at a fraction of the power-per-inference of leading GPU solutions. Last year, Generative AI was mostly offered as a cloud solution, but we’ve also seen LLM running on single board computers thanks to open-source projects such as Llama2 and Whispter, and analysts such as Alexander Harrowell, Principal Analyst, at Omdia expect that “virtually every edge application will get enhanced by generative AI in the next 18 months”. The Generative AI and LLM solutions running on Ambarella AI Edge processors will be used for video analytics, robotics, and various industrial applications. Compared to GPUs and other AI accelerators, Ambarella provides AI Edge SoC solutions that are up to 3x more power-efficient per generated […]
