Telit GE863-PY Module

Telit GE863-PY Module

Part no.: 3990250654
Manufacturer: Telit

Availability: In Stock

The GE863-PY module is now boasting quad-band functionality and RoHS compliance and additional new features. This translates into one consistent product offering for global GSM networks and provides for significant cost advantages with the savings in approvals and logistics costs.

The unique Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) package enables a low profile and small resulting product size for the design of compact applications. Since connectors are eliminated, the solution cost is significantly reduced compared to conventional mounting. With its low profile design and extended temperature range, the Telit GE863-PY is the perfect platform for compact, medium to high volume m2m applications. Additional features such as jamming detection, integrated TCP/IP protocol stack, and Easy Scan® functionality enhance the application at no additional cost.

The GE863-PY makes it possible to run the customer's application inside the module, thus making it a complete platform for m2m solutions. State-of-the-art SPI and IIC interfaces provide connectivity for external peripherals such as sensors and displays.
