Telit Wireless’ first 3G-cellular modules to employ VQFN mounting technology, the UL865 series, is capable of running customer applications internally without the need for additional electronics. The series, which also incorporates a Python Script Language interpreter, delivers HSPA data rates of 7.2 Mbps down and 5.76 Mbps up and will be available in variants targeted at European and North American markets. The dual-band UMTS/HSPA, dual-band GSM/GPRS engine in the new modules is voice-capable supporting DVI interface. It delivers UMTS/HSPA 3GPP Release 7 compliant data communications and is equipped with a high-speed USB 2.0 port, eight I/O ports, two A/D and one D/A converters. The embedded Python script interpreter allows processing core in the cellular engine to run customer applications which can among other things, access a companion Telit GPS|Glonass receiver module directly for a complete tracking device. The new series is ideally suited for the battery-powered wearable technology segment because of its low-power consumption, 24.4 x 24.4 x 2.6 mm size, and GPIOs operating on battery-friendly 1.8 V logic.
