Discover nRF9161 SiP
Compared to its predecessor (nRF9160 SiP), the nRF9161 boasts improved features, including support for DECT NR+ and 3GPP Release 14 LTE-M/NB-IoT. Housed within a compact 10x16mm design, this SiP integrates a programmable Arm Cortex-M33 application processor, a comprehensive LTE modem with GNSS and DECT NR+ capability, an RF Front End (RFFE), and a power management system (PMIC) and the necessary passives and crystals. The result is the most energy-efficient complete cellular IoT solution available, now with added compatibility for non-cellular 5G applications through NR+.
Global Connectivity and Power Efficiency
The integrated modem of the nRF9161 supports 3GPP Release 14 LTE-M and NB-IoT globally, without regional limitations. Take advantage of power-saving features like eDRX, PSM, and AS-RAI, along with robust IPv4/IPv6 support up to the transport and security (TCP/TLS) level. Ensure your device stays up to date with secure firmware upgrades through Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) updates, all while maintaining exceptional power efficiency. In addition you get all the unique Nordic features for additional power saving or ease of use.
Unleashing the Potential of DECT NR+ and Advanced Application Development
Harness the capabilities of the Wirepas DECT NR+ stack with the nRF9161, enabling massive mesh applications that prioritize reliability, secure connections, long range, and scalability. This opens up new possibilities for IoT applications, giving you the freedom to explore innovative solutions.
Develop advanced applications within a single device using the programmable Arm Cortex-M33 application processor, 1 MB flash, and 256 KB RAM of the nRF9161. Enhance your application's capabilities with the built-in GNSS receiver for precise location tracking and support for cellular-based location features. Seamlessly integrate with the nRF7000 Wi-Fi companion IC to leverage SSID Wi-Fi locationing support.
Comprehensive Interfaces, Robust Security, and Connectivity Options
The nRF9161 offers a wide range of interfaces and peripherals, including ADC, RTC, SPI, I²C, I²S, UARTE, PDM, and PWM, providing extensive flexibility to tailor your solution to specific requirements. Protect your device with Arm TrustZone technology, secure boot, trusted firmware updates, and root of trust implementations. Further enhance security and performance with the cryptographic and energy-optimized resources provided by Arm CryptoCell.
Connect effortlessly with mobile network operators using SIM, eSIM, and Software SIM authentication options supported by the nRF9161. Stay ahead of the curve with upcoming hardware and development kits that will support end-to-end sensor-to-cloud development and seamless integration with nRF cloud services.
