WisLTE development board is based on Quectel launched a new generation of Internet of things module BG96.
BG96 is an embedded IoT (LTE Cat M1 and LTE Cat NB1) wireless communication module without receive diversity. It supports LTE-TDD and Half-Duplex LTE-FDD wireless communication, which provides data connectivity on LTE-TDD/FDD networks. It also provides GNSS1) and voice2) functionalities to meet customers’ specific application demands. The following table shows the frequency bands of BG96 module.
BG96 is a series of LTE Cat M1 and Cat NB1 module offering a maximum data rate of 375kbps downlink and uplink. It features ultra-low power consumption, and provides pin-to-pin compatibility with Quectel LTE module EG91, Cat NB1 (NB-IoT) module BC95, UMTS/HSPA modules UG95/UG96 and GSM/GPRS module M95.
With cost-effective SMT form factor of 22.5mm × 26.5mm × 2.3mm and high integration level, BG96 enables integrators and developers to easily design their applications and take advantage from the module’s low power consumption and mechanical intensity. Its advanced LGA package allows fully automated manufacturing for high-volume applications.
A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/I2C/Status Indicator) and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows 7/8/10, Linux and Android) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as wireless POS, metering, tracking, etc.
