Ericsson has unveiled its second generation of the F3307 mobile broadband module, specifically designed for tablet computers and other consumer electronic devices, at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco. Pre-certified with the world's largest HSPA networks, the advanced modules require minimal power consumption and enables manufacturers to quickly equip tablets and other consumer electronic devices with integrated mobile broadband wireless connectivity.

Mats Norin, Vice President, Ericsson Mobile Broadband Modules says, "Tablet computers are creating a new portable window to the world by redefining the way we connect to the internet and share and search for information. Combining our cost-effective mobile broadband solution with the innovation of tablets, Ericsson is enabling connectivity anywhere at any time."

Based on ST-Ericsson's leading M34x HSPA 7.2 Mbps thin modem platform, the F3307 module maintains the high performance expected from Ericsson modules, while reducing power consumption by up to 50 percent in comparison with previous generations, thereby extending battery life and enabling the key feature of always-on connectivity in portable devices.

The optimized module, with a download speed of up to 7.2Mbps and an upload speed of up to 5.76Mbps, enables tablet users to directly access the internet through HSPA, the leading mobile broadband technology in almost 150 countries worldwide. Ericsson modules are also preapproved by mobile operators allowing device manufacturers to cut the product launch phase by shortening the final certification process and enabling faster time to market.

The module also features Quick Connect, which enables an embedded device to connect to the internet just seconds after resuming from sleep mode, essentially giving end users the seamless experience of always being connected.

The module supports major and open source operating systems and is commercially available in the global markets from September.
