Duragon takes the lead in integration of 5G in Railway Systems
Bangkok - October 8th, 2020 - Duragon Systems will integrate the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ SDX55 5G Modem-RF SoC into its systems portflio. This Qualcomm modem chipset can work standalone or connecting to a Linux application processor using USB 3.0 interface. Integration of the SDX55 modem directly onto the system board will enable the full use of internal resources and interfaces of this SoC. 5G-connectivity with GNSS and High speed WiFi will be available as an option for all railway systems controllers starting in Q1/2021. Dedicated Linux firmware executing on the internal CORTEX A7 processor of the SoC will enable transparent device management in eSIM based globally connected multi-operator profile solutions. Furthermore, Duragon will be able to offer 5G-connected light-EDGE devices, where the the SDX55 internal CORTEX A7 boot processor will also operate as the application processor executing software from the internal 4GB NAND Flash.
