Robust PCIe Mini Card Carrier on CompactPCI Serial

(PresseBox) (Nuremberg, Germany, )
  • 2 PCI Express Mini Card slots for LTE, UMTS, GSM, HSPA communication
  • 2 external antennas per module (reverse SMA)
  • 1 PCI Express Mini Card slot for WLAN, GPS, virtual SIM card, audio codec
  • 10 microSIM card slots
  • Software tool for switching SIM cards and remote power up/down of modems
  • -40 to +85°C screened, conformal coating
The new CompactPCI Serial carrier board G227 for PCI Express Mini Cards fulfills almost any wish regarding wireless data communication. It offers space for two PCIe Mini Card slots for LTE, UMTS, GSM or HSPA, each with two antenna connectors at the front, one PCI Mini Card slot for WLAN, telephony, GPS or audio signals and up to ten microSIM cards.

Wireless communication for transportation applications

The versatile PCI Mini Card carrier board G227 is the solution for wireless applications like fleet management or passenger information in the train and other mobile markets.

The CompactPCI Serial card is equipped with three PCIe Mini Card slots in total: two of them for communication via LTE, UMTS, GSM or HSPA – each with two front-sided antenna connectors – and another for WLAN and GPS, for transmission of audio signals or as virtual SIM card.

The integration of GNSS signals with MEN’s PCI Mini Card PX1 as well as the connection of an additional antenna connector at the front is also possible via the third slot.

Particularly for the usage with frequent location or rate-related network changes, ten microSIM cards can be accommodated on the G227. The remote software provided by MEN allows the separate control and the power up and down of the microSIMs.

For use in harsh environments, the G227 works in an operating temperature of -40 to +85°C. In addition, the board is coated against dust and humidity.
