Embedded World: IoT module has multiband W-CDMA

Quectel A UMTS/HSDPA embedded wireless module from Quectel, which supports the migration from GPRS to UMTS, will be demonstrated by MSC Technologies at Embedded World 2014 exhibition in Nuremberg next week.

Due to the combination of 900/2100MHz- respectively 850/1900MHz multiband W-CDMA and quad-band GSM, the 29 x 29 mm2 module is downwards compatible to EDGE and GPRS with Multi-Slot Class 12.

UC15 is characterised by low power consumption of 3.5mA in sleep mode only, respectively 520mA at the maximum in UMTS mode.

Various interfaces like USB, UART, PCM as well as two analogue I/O and analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) channels are available. The maximum download speed is 3.6Mbit/s and the transfer rate at upload is 384kbit/s, which is predestined for applications with a low amount of data for upload purposes.

Alongside the drivers for Linux, Android and Windows, UC 15 will be delivered with a comprehensive software-package.

Possible applications for the UC15 is smart metering, building applications and utility vehicles due to the extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85 °C combined with the small and robust 68-pin-LCC-Package.
