Based on Qualcomm’s qualified AEC-Q100 chipsets, Quectel’s new line of modules includes the AG59xH series which includes Qualcomm’s SA525M, and the AG59xE series which incorporates Qualcomm’s SA522M. Similar to Quectel’s other automotive products, AG59x modules comply with the IATF 16949:2016 international automotive quality management system and meet the high requirements of automotive equipment. Very robust, the AG59x series offers high performance even in high temperature environments.

“We are excited to launch the highly anticipated 5G NR Release 16 module to global automotive markets. Its significant improvements in latency and ultra-high reliability are essential for autonomous driving applications, said Manfred Lindacher, Vice President Global Sales, Automotive International, Quectel Wireless Solutions. The combination of its many advantages makes our AG59x series an excellent choice for a wide range of automotive applications, including telematics boxes, telematics control units, C-V2X systems, in-vehicle units and roadside units. .”

AG59x modules comply with the 3GPP Release 16 specification. They are compatible with 5G NR standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes, and are backward compatible with existing LTE, WCDMA and GSM networks, allowing them to be connected in areas where the current 5G NR is not deployed. In addition, their DSDS (Dual SIM Dual Standby) technology can, if necessary, help to overcome poor signal coverage.

The AG59x supports 4 x 4 downlink Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology which greatly improves wireless communication performance and optimizes data speeds. The AG59xH provides a maximum downstream rate of 4.3 Gbps and a maximum upload rate of 1 Gbps for 5G NR, while the AG59xE provides a maximum downstream rate of 2.4 Gbps and a maximum maximum amount of 550 Mbps. With these faster data rates, emergency data and user diagnostic data can be transferred in real time with increased reliability.

The AG59x, which can optionally support C-V2X PC5 direct communications, provides superior vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure (V2I) communication performance, which improves the efficiency and safety of traffic management. The module integrates a powerful application processor with up to 20KDMIPS computing power, available to run C-V2X stack and applications. It also integrates an ECDSA engine assuming the C-V2X verification capability.

Highly integrated, the AG59x module further offers flexible GNSS positioning services, including dual-frequency L1+L5/L1+L2 GNSS (optional), dead reckoning (DR), and service PPE+ data correction tools that provide fast and accurate location and positioning services.

Available in LGA package, the AG59x is pin-to-pin compatible with Quectel’s previous generation 5G NR AG55xQ and AG57xQ automotive modules, making it very easy for automotive OEMs and global Tier 1 customers to upgrade their devices for less. a simple direct replacement. The AG59x offers various interfaces, including PCIe 3.0, USB 2.0 and 3.1, SDIO, I2S, SPI, I2C, UART, PCM, ADC, (U)SIM, 1PPS and GPIO. It is also compatible with RGMII and SGMII interfaces simultaneously, which greatly improves the adaptability of on-board Ethernet.

Quectel’s AG59x series is complemented by a range of high performance antennas , already used in the self-driving car market. Quectel also offers custom antennas that fit various vehicle configurations. Quectel’s range of combined antennas, which integrate several technologies such as 5G, 4G and GNSS, thus offer an extremely flexible and reliable antenna solution for automotive applications.

Engineering samples of AG59x modules will be available in the first half of 2023, with numerous variants corresponding to various global markets.
