MC60E

Ultra-small LCC Quad-band GSM/GPRS/GNSS Module

MC60E is a quad-band full-featured GSM/GPRS/GNSS module using LCC castellation package. It is fully pin-to-pin compatible with MC60, and supports both BT4.0 and BT3.0 specifications. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology features ultra-low peak, average and idel mode power consumption, making MC60E especially ideal for applications requiring energy efficient Bluetooth wireless conectivity. The module also supports Dual SIM Single Standby.

MC60E integrates both GPRS and GNSS engines in one compact and low profile SMT package. It supports EPO™ technology which provides predicted Extended Prediction Orbit to speed up TTFF without need of extra server. Based on EPO data, QuecFastFix Online function further reduces TTFF in cold start. EASY™ technology enables a very fast first fix when there is no enough satellite information. AlwaysLocate™ and GLP (GNSS Low Power) power saving modes ensure great positioning accuracy while with very-low power consumption. The built-in LNA provides the module with improved RF sensitivity and exceptional acquisition/tracking performance even in weak signal areas.

The compact form factor, great positioning performance, low power consumption and dual SIM card interfaces make MC60E a best choice for a wide range of M2M applications, such as automotive, telematics, wearable device, asset tracker, pet tracker, and so on.
