The System-in-Package expands IoT connectivity, simplifying development for applications like asset tracking and agriculture with its compact size and energy efficiency.


Nordic Semiconductor, a leading provider of wireless connectivity solutions, is taking a significant step forward in its nRF91 Series cellular IoT devices. With the introduction of the nRF9151 System-in-Package (SiP), we are expanding our product range to meet the evolving needs of the IoT market.

Cellular IoT is rapidly becoming the backbone of many applications due to its global reach, robustness, low power consumption, and security features. From asset tracking and smart metering to smart cities and agriculture, cellular IoT enables devices to communicate efficiently on a tight energy budget. Nordic Semiconductor’s cellular IoT solution is a game-changer, helping businesses bring their applications to market efficiently and quickly and ensuring they stay ahead in the competitive IoT landscape.

The SiP enhances the cellular IoT solution, which includes hardware, software, tools, and nRF Cloud Services. This integrated approach offers features and integration, simplifying the development process for IoT devices.

The nRF9151 SiP, a compact, pre-certified, and integrated device, stands out in the market. It includes a System-on-Chip (SoC), power management, and an RF front-end, all developed by Nordic Semiconductor. This unique combination is designed to be more resilient in the supply chain and offers a 20% reduction in footprint compared to its predecessors in the nRF91 Series. This smaller size is advantageous for devices, sensors, and other IoT applications with limited space, as it allows for more compact products without sacrificing performance.

Furthermore, the nRF9151 introduces support for Class 5 20dBm output power and the existing Class 3 23dBm support. This new power class provides developers with flexibility, especially for battery-powered products, by easing the requirements for output power.

“Our decision to develop the nRF9151 stems from a deep understanding of market demands and the need for solutions that seamlessly address the challenges faced by our customers”, says Kjetil Holstad, EVP of Strategy and Product Management. “With the nRF9151, we aim to fill a crucial gap in the market, streamlining the development process and reducing both power consumption and footprint. This strategic addition to our cellular IoT portfolio confirms our dedication to providing cutting-edge cellular IoT solutions and our continuous drive to stay ahead”.
