IoT product provider Thundercomm has launched commercial-ready 5G products, including a system-on-module, an IoT 5G AI kit, and 5G solutions for location tracking and XR.

The TurboX T55 SoM is based on the second generation Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System. Designed in both LGA and M.2 form factors, the T55 SoM supports the 5G NR sub-6GHz spectrum bands and virtually any available sub-6 GHz spectrum band, mode or combination. It also supports LTE FDD and TDD connectivity and has embedded GNSS capability. Applicable to 5G standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes of operation, the T55 is designed to provide a unified experience for customers to build new 5G applications across a range of new verticals.

The Thundercomm TurboX AI Kit, powered by the Qualcomm SDA845 processor, is an embedded development device, supporting on-device AI application development. The 5G AI Kit can realize low-latency, high-speed and low power-consumption performance for next-generation IoT applications while supporting on-device AI development. Applications include immersive 360-degree video, and industrial edge servers. 

"5G will position the IoT to realize its promise of massive scale, ultra-low latency, and ultra-high reliability in communications between devices of all sorts," said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "We are very excited to see Thundercomm offer these 5G offerings for the IoT to build off of our foundational compute & connectivity technologies and kickstart this promising area."
