Quectel launches UC15 Module - Cost-efficient and Full-featured UMTS/HSPDA Module

UC15 module features maximum download speed of 3.6 Mbps and upload transfer rate of 384 Kbps.

Quectel Wireless Solutions, a leading global supplier of GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA/LTE and GNSS modules, solutions and services, today announced UC15 module, the latest UMTS/HSDPA module featuring a maximum data rate of 3.6Mbps downlink and 384Kbps uplink in the LCC castellation packaging. Designed to be compatible with Quectel GSM/GPRS M10 and M12 module in the compact and unified form factor, UC 15 module provides a flexible and scalable platform for migrating from GSM/GPRS/EDGE to UMTS/HSDPA. This enables integrators and developers to design their applications once and take advantage of true worldwide coverage and service flexibility afforded by the combination of the two most prevalent cellular technologies worldwide.

UC15 module supports Over Temperature and Voltage Protection with a supply range of 3.3~4.3V. It integrates with a rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/ADC/Status Indicator/PCM) and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows CE, Linux, Android/eCall), extending the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications. In addition, UC15 supports FOTA, enabling remote updates of data and applications, which are crucial for keeping M2M solutions current over the long life of applications. For easy integration with high level operating systems, UC15 includes cellular modem (RIL) device drivers for most operating system platforms.

Quectel U15 M2M moduleJaron Xu, Quectel Marketing Director, said:

“The UC15 module is a product that takes full advantage of M2M technology to address increasing market demand.”

“It is characterized by low power consumption, 3.5mA at the sleep mode and 520mA at the maximum in UMTS mode. Sharing nearly the same compact footprint as Quectel’s M10 and M12 GPRS Class-12 module, UC15 module enables network migration within a single design while ensuring long-lasting, future-proof applications. With the most competitive pricing, UC15 module is right choice for our customers.”

UC15 module is suitable for Smart Metering, Mobile POS Terminal, Fleet Management, Security System, Routers & Data Cards, Industrial PDA & Modem and Mobile Computing due to its extended temperature range of -40 to +85 combined with the small and robust 68-Pin-LCC-Package.

UC15 module will be available starting March, 2014 with a range of development tools and associated documentation. Engineering design samples available now.
