Quectel's 3G-Module UC15 is the right choice for cost efficient migration from 2G to 3G

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) Quectel's UMTS/HSDPA-Module UC15, which is pin-compatible to Quectel's M10- and M12-GPRS Class 12-Modules, is allowing an exceedingly cost efficient migration from GPRS to UMTS. MSC Technologies will present this module for the first time on embedded world 2014 fair, in Hall 2, Booth 130.

Due to the combination of 900/2100-MHz- respectively 850/1900-MHz-Multiband-W-CDMA and Quad-Band-GSM, the compact module (29 x 29 mm2 only) is downwards compatible to EDGE and GPRS with Multi-Slot Class 12. Hence, the 2G-Support is providing an excellent network coverage already today. Additionally, the integrated 3G-Technology is offering a high level of ROI (return on investment) to developers.

UC15 is characterized by low power consumption of 3,5 mA in sleep mode only, respectively 520 mA at the maximum in UMTS mode. Various interfaces like USB, UART, PCM as well as two analog I/Os and ADC-Channels are available. The maximum download speed is 3,6 MBit/s and the transfer rate at upload is 384 kbit/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. In addition to all major standard internet protocols and a file system, UC 15 supports FOTA and eCall as well. For evaluation purposes, a full development kit including hardware, software, specifications, application notes, debug and testing tools, certification and test reports are available.

UC15 is distinguished for 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.

MSC Technologies can be found on the embedded world show in hall 2, stand 2-130.
