Fast data transmission is becoming an inseparable part of devices for automotive industry, measuring, tracking, security systems, wireless terminals (POS), mobile computers etc.

When we´re choosing a module for above mentioned segments, it´s surely worth if the module also offers somewhat so to say “extra”. In case of the UC20 module it´s true, because there´s probably no parameter, which would the UC20 not meet and when you look closer at the datasheet, you´ll also find another functions like for example 2x 15 bit AD converter and other. A big advantage of the UC20 is, that it supports a fast transmission even outside of the 3G networks thanks to a dual mode (+ Multi-band) for WCDMA but even GSM with a support of GPRS/EDGE Multi-slot Class 12. A considerable benefit are also the Windows USB drivers (Linux and Android drivers are in development).

UC20 can air itself even with a high sensitivity and a high integrity of transferred data even in adverse conditions. For a development support, there are also available reference examples - UC20-reference design as well as UC20-Compatibility design regarding HW compatibility of UC20 with the M10 module.

All package (12x pdf) of software user guides can be downloaded on this link (11MB). Detailed information will provide you the documents UC20-Specification, UC20-Presentation and UC20 Hardware design.

For many applications can be beneficial the UC20 module on a PCB in a form of the Mini PCIe card. Also available is the UC20_EVB development board.
