Samples of automotive 5G Release 16 modules now available

Rolling Wireless on 27th Feb’2023 announced the availability of the first engineering samples of its RN93xx and RN94xx automotive-grade 5G Release 16 modules. Based on the Snapdragon® Auto 5G Modem-RF Gen 2 platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the Rolling Wireless RN93xx and RN94xx modules will bring a host of enhancements to automotive applications. In addition to support for 5G Release 16, features include a high-performance multicore application processor and an integrated hardware engine for security features, plus options such as a cellular antenna switching system, eCall antenna backup, and larger memory for customer applications.

More than just 5G Release 16 modems, the modules are delivered with an integrated, flexible software platform. Customers can build their Telematics Control Units (TCUs) on the ready-to-use Core Connectivity Services from Rolling Wireless, on Telematics Application Framework (TelAF) from Qualcomm Technologies, or even a custom application framework.

The flexible software platform also offers customizable middleware components as well as a range of “smart services”: ready-to-use applications designed to address common connected vehicle use cases.

Rolling Wireless has already secured its first design win for the 5G Release 16 NAD, which will equip the next-generation telematics solutions of one of the world’s top 5 auto makers.
