The new GL865-QUAD product is the new representative of Telit's GSM/GPRS LCC surface mounted family. It features the same performances of its companion module GL865-DUAL but in all GSM bands.
The Telit EVK is required in order to design with all Telit interface boards.
GL865-QUAD is a quad band GSM/GPRS device in LCC castellation packaging with extremely low power consumption, extended temperature range and compact profile.
The GL865-QUAD modules with LCC castellation package technology are surface mount package devices, which use metalized pads on the sides of the package. This kind of packaging is ideally suited for uncomplicated and low-cost applications based on Four-Layer PCB (printed circuit board). Moreover, with the option for manual soldering and removal, it can also serve niche applications with a low volume production. Since connectors are eliminated, the solution cost is significantly reduced compared to conventional mounting.
Additional features such as integrated TCP/IP protocol stack, serial multiplexer and Remote AT commands extend the functionality of the application at no additional cost.
The GL865-QUAD makes it possible to run the customer's application inside the module by means its embedded Python Script Interpreter, thus making it the smallest, complete SMT platform for m2m solutions.
The GL865-QUAD is also compliant with eCall EU Directive, sponsored by the European Commission and it's based on the EU directive E112. It is intended to adopt a black box device installed inside vehicles, wirelessly connected to Emergengy Centers. In case of an emergency such as an accident or by user intervention, the black box and its sensors will send information about the event to such centers, with the chance to establish a voice call for safety measures.
As a part of Telit's corporate policy of environmental protection, all products comply to the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive of the European Union (EU Directive 2002/95/EG).
Symmetry Electronics (and its e-commerce division: SemiconductorStore.com) is an authorized Telit distributor.
