The first integrated multi-mode LTE chipset enhances connectivity globally in private, critical, and utility networks across all terrains and conditions.


GCT Semiconductor Holding Inc., a designer and supplier of 5G and 4G semiconductor solutions, has introduced GDM7243SL, which the company describes as the world’s first integrated multi-mode LTE chipset. The chipset supports network categories, including Cat 4, Cat 1bis, Cat-M1, Cat NB1/NB2, and non-terrestrial networks (NTN). With over two decades of experience in 450 MHz technology, the new System on Chip (SoC) is designed for use in private, mission-critical, and public utility networks worldwide, ensuring coverage across land, sea, and air.

Anticipating expansion in 450 MHz deployments, the company is leveraging its knowledge in the 450 MHz and industrial sectors to help members of the 450 MHz Alliance access new markets and opportunities. The chipset features dual RX and low-band dual TX capabilities, using UL diversity and increased power to maintain connections in environments such as underground or remote deep forests. This new dual-core solution includes integrated RAM and an optional Flash, enabling the development of integrated devices without needing an external processor. It also consists of a baseband, a radio that can be tuned from 380 to 3,800 MHz, and multiple ports to minimize the need for external RF components.

“450 MHz device deployments are already in millions of devices worldwide and serve critical communications needs in safety and emergency services, as well as remote healthcare facilities, schools, and more,” said John Schlaefer, CEO of GCT. “With this new chipset, GCT is fully ready to support the continued growth of 450 MHz, 410 MHz, and 380 MHz networks worldwide.”

“We’re excited to have GCT continue its support of the 450 MHz Alliance members and ecosystem,” said Gösta Kallner, Executive Chairman of 450 MHz Alliance. “Bringing a new LTE chipset to market during a time when 5G has taken the spotlight shows true leadership and understanding of the 450 MHz market as it enters a period of strong growth.”
