Telit Communications will unveil the GE865, a recent extension to their GE product range and will be available from Glyn High-Tech Distribution . The GE865 Ball Grid Array (BGA) module is based on a single-chip solution with a form factor of 22 x 22 x 3mm and it is a small GSM/GPRS module.
The GE865 Ball Grid Array module can be incorporated into high-volume M2M applications in which the module size and low energy consumption play a key role. The module features quad-band technology and can be operated on global GSM networks, making various data services possible over GSM/GPRS networks.
An integrated TCP/IP protocol stack provides support for UDP, FTP and SMTP through AT commands. The GE865 Ball Grid Array module also features RUN AT Commands which allow users to run any AT Command through SMS or TCP. The remote control of different events on the application side is simplified by using text messages from any phone for both activation commands and receiving replies.
Some of the applications are related to monitoring of GPIOs, roaming, battery level, voltage, or module state with the possibility to send alerts in the event that conditions change. The GE865-QUAD also enables its use in an extended temperature range from -30 to +80°C. According to Telit Communications, the GE865 Ball Grid Array module is suitable for complex M2M applications. In terms of software, as with all Telit Communications modules, the GE865 Ball Grid Array module can be fully integrated with earlier Telit Communications platforms, and can thus be implemented easily into existing designs. The GE865 Ball Grid Array module is suitable for locating people or objects in professional and consumer applications.
