Low power cellular IoT

Enabling a world of everything connected

The nRF91 Series

The nRF91 Series is Nordic’s first family of low power cellular devices for the Internet of Things. The nRF91 Series are engineered from inception to perform at the highest possible standards for energy-efficiency and security whilst simultaneously bringing advanced application performance and possibilities to cellular IoT. With an unprecedented level of integration bringing LTE-M, NB-IoT, GNSS, all RF front end (RFFE) and power management into a very small package, the nRF91 Series make single chip solutions a real possibility.

The advantages of nRF9160 in low power cellular IoT

The nRF9160 was built from the ground up with ultra-low power consumption in mind. Our easy-to-use and globally certified solution enable you to achieve absolute minimum time to market. Development is easy through great documentation, full software development kit support, flexible hardware, and complementary tools.

Finally, we have enabled an unprecedented level of integration by making a complete communication and application module with all relevant components in a tiny 10x16mm System-in-Package (SiP).

Unprecedented integration

The nRF9160 uses the Arm Cortex-M33 as a dedicated application processor. It has 1MB of flash, 256kB of RAM, and a broad array of peripherals. Beyond its LTE connectivity and positioning options, it is a device capable to support a broad selection of use-cases and offers real edge computing possibilities for the world of cellular IoT. Nordic provides the open-source nRF Connect Software Development Kit that you can use to develop your customized applications on the dedicated application processor.
