The 9602 is a short-burst data transceiver designed for use on the Iridium Satellite Network. This tiny two-way transceiver is perfect for use in applications for the rapidly growing M2M market, including remote asset tracking and monitoring solutions.
The 9602’s very compact form factor and lower power consumption will offer great flexibility to solution developers as they design the module into their products. Their final product packages can be smaller and less obtrusive, a feature that will be attractive to end users.
A unique feature of the Iridium 9602 is its built-in GPS input/output ports which will permit system integrators to interface with an external GPS receiver, using a single dual-mode L-Band antenna for GPS and Iridium SBD, saving the cost of an antenna in their applications.
