GL865-Quad GPRS module

The GL865-Quad is a tiny GSM/GPRS module (24×24×2.8 mm only). GL865-QuAD is a quad band  GSM/GPRS module in LCC package. It offers ultra low power consumption and an extended temperature range.



The small size enables the design of tiny M2M applications. By saving the board to board connectors the BOM (Bill of Material) was reduced and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) will higher. With the option for manual soldering and removal, GE865-Quad can also serve niche applications with a low volume production.

The GL865-Quad comes with embedded Python Script Interpreter. By saving the micro controller it can save further costs and space on PCB. This helps to develop tiny M2M applications.

Right now we are thinking about a reference designs of small M2M app based on GL865-Quad, because we already have access to world smallest GSM antennas and GPS antennas. This combined with eSIM (SIM on Chip) could save further costs and space.
