In Quectel’s effort to build a smarter world, another module has been recently released in China where developers can develop almost any kind of middle/high-end application with this super module, the SC20 aka smart module. SC20 series comes in six variants: SC20-E, SC20-A, SC20-AU, SC20-J, SC20-CE and SC20-W. This makes it backward compatible with an existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks, ensuring that it can be connected even in remote areas devoid of 3G or LTE coverage.
SC20 series is Quectel’s new generation of multi-mode smart LTE Cat.4 modules with built-in Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. It supports short-range wireless communication via Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and BT4.1 LE, and offers data rate up to 150Mbps. It is ideal for both industrial and consumer applications requiring the highest data-rate and high-speed Internet access.
SC20 features multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, a cutting edge antenna technology capable of transmitting multiple data streams on multiple transmitters to multiple receivers. The antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed.
The module also combines high-speed wireless connectivity with embedded multi-constellation and high-sensitivity GPS+GLONASS+BeiDou receiver for positioning. A rich set of interfaces (such as LCD, Camera, Touch Panel, MIC, SPK, UART, USB, I2C) and abundant drivers (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Linux) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications, such as CPE, wireless POS, smart metering, router, data card, automotive, smart phone, digital signage, alarm panel, security and industry PDA.
For quick evaluation and to speed up your development, Quectel offers a complete Evaluation Board with SC20 module.
