Just have a look on the world smallest Quad-band GSM / GRPS module on LCC packaging. On top a Bluetooth 3.0 module is already included. Even if there are two radios inside, the price of the combined is close to the half of a standard GSM / GPRS module.

Based on the latest 2G chip set, it has the optimal performance in SMS & Data transmission and audio service even in harsh environment. Its ultra-compact 15.8 × 17.7 × 2.3 mm profile makes the module a perfect platform for size sensitive applications.

The Quad-band GSM / GRPS module adopts SMT (surface mounted technology), making it the ideal solution for durable and rugged designs. And its low profile and small size of LCC package ensure the module easily embedded into the low-volume applications and provide the reliable connectivity with the applications. This kind of package is ideally suited for large-scale manufacturing which has the strict requirements for cost and efficiency.

Its compact form factor, low power consumption and extended temperature make Quad-band GSM / GRPS the best choice for applications such as wearable devices, automotive, industrial PDA, personal tracking, wireless POS, smart metering, telematics and other M2M applications.
