The new FM330 series of 5G RedCap module combines MediaTek’s T300 5G modem. The FM330 series incorporates a single-core Arm Cortex-A3 processor in a significantly compact PCB area, which offers extended coverage, increased network efficiency and device battery life for industry customers.

The FM330 series can handle the demand for 5G applications by reaching a maximum bandwidth of 20MHz, thus reaching the peak data rate of up to 227Mbps downlink and 122Mbps uplink, with less data throughput while balancing the power efficiency.

The FM330 series hardware design ultimately optimizes cost and size:

The M.2 form factor measured at 30x42mm benefiting from the unique RFSOC solution integrated with T300, in addition to the optimized antenna design in 1T2R, which significantly saves the PCB area. Moreover, FM330 series is pin-compatible with Fibocom LTE Cat 6 module FM101, easing the concerns for customers’ migration from 4G to 5G. Furthermore, the module provides 64QAM/256QAM (optional) modulation scheme to greatly optimize the cost and size.

Fibocom’s FM330 series supports Windows, Linux, and Android mainstream operating systems. By using a standard USB peripheral interface, internet access is simplified with plug and play, and can be applied to terminal devices such as PC, drones, tablets and industrial routers. This 5G dongle solution adapts to the fast-growing marketplace and 5G monetization realization.
