April 08, 2015 // By Julien Happich
The TOBY-L280 announced by u-blox is claimed to be the first LTE Category 4 rugged module in an LGA package to support FDD-LTE in frequency band 28, now in commercial use in Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand, with further rollouts planned throughout the Asia Pacific region, Brazil and Argentina.

Capable of download speeds up to 150Mb/sec, the TOBY-L280 supports not only FDD-LTE but also HSPA+ and GSM/GPRS fall-back for global operation.

The unit is available in professional grade with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C for applications ranging from automotive infotainment and navigation systems to rugged handsets.

The platform is also offered in standard grade (-20 to +65°C) in the mPCI format for notebooks, tablets and set top boxes. The products are equally suited to provide reliable cellular communications in video surveillance, medical, digital signage and transit systems. The support of Band 28 enables the design of products that can roam across many countries in Asia.
