Measuring just 40mm x 32.2mm x 3.9 mm, Wavecom's Quik Q2686 is the first in the Q26 family of long-life wireless quad-band GSM/GPRS module.
The wireless quad-band GSM/GPRS module combines Wavecom´s unique OS 6.60 operating system with GSM/CDMA interchangeability and an extended life-span of up to ten years which paves the way to future EDGE and 3G developments in industrial machine-to-machine applications.
Powered by a new ARM9 processor, the Quik Q2686 integrates a large memory and Wavecom´s OS 6.60 operating system which features an advanced version of the Open AT software environment. This offers lower power modes, new APIs (Application Programming Interface), improved connectivity for USB and remote monitoring ports and internet package for enhanced customisation and cost advantages as well as a fast time-to-market.
The Quik Q2686 also has greater DOTA (Download Over-The-Air) capacity making remote e-maintenance and new feature enhancements a reality. Software upgrades to application equipment can now be implemented while the equipment is in the field, without ever having to return it to a service centre, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership.
The Quik Q2686 starter kit, available from Soanar, includes Open AT software development tools, a development board, handset, quad band antenna, power supply as well as serial and power cables and documentation on CD.
