Glyn High-Tech Distribution has introduced the EZ864 PRO GSM terminal with Microchip PIC18F67J10 microcontroller as a turnkey solution for machine-to-machine (m2m) applications.
The EZ864 Pro incorporates Telit’s GC864 module, which handles all GSM processing for both signal and data, operating at quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz.
The PIC18F67J10 contains 128Kbytes of Flash and 3936 bytes of RAM, and is supported by an external 256Kbit of serial EEPROM and a dedicated 3.3V LDO power supply.
The microcontroller can turn off the DC/DC power supply to the GC864 module and can work on low energy mode on the 3.3V LDO power supply.
For additional low energy the microcontroller can go to sleep mode, enabling the microcontroller to run on 1mA power consumption.
The terminal has single supply voltage (5V to 30V), metal casing, SMA GSM antenna connector, SIM card holder, RS232 9pin female SUB-D type connector, 4 GPIO inputs, one internal relay, and RoHS and WEEE Directives compliant.
The serial interface of the EZ864 PRO Terminal is intended for the communication between the GSM module and the host application.
This RS-232 interface is a data and control interface for transmitting data, AT commands and providing multiplexed channels.
