The Sterling-LWB+ is available as a System-in-Package (SIP) and two certified module versions, supporting either an on-board chip antenna or a MHF connector for an external antenna. It was designed to meet the demands of medical and industrial IoT applications, including rugged handheld devices, industrial IoT connectivity, industrial IoT sensors, and battery-powered medical devices.
