SC60

Multi-mode Smart LTE Module with Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

SC60 is Quectel’s new generation of multi-mode Smart LTE Cat 6 module with built-in Android 7.1 Nougat OS. Based on Qualcomm Octa-core and 64-bit high-performance processors, SC60 is designed to support leading performance, rich multimedia features and Quick Charge 3.0 technology. It is ideal for both industrial and consumer applications requiring high data-rate and multimedia functions.

SC60 supports multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, a cutting edge antenna technology transmitting multiple data streams on multiple transmitters to multiple receivers. The antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed. The module also combines high-speed wireless connectivity with embedded multi-constellation and high-sensitivity GNSS (GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou) receiver for positioning.

A rich set of interfaces (such as LCM, Camera, Touch Panel, MIC, SPK, UART, USB, I2C, SPI) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as smart cash register, tax controller, security monitoring, on-board equipment, high-level information collection equipment, intelligent robot, smart home, intelligent hardware, intelligent industrial handhelds, intelligent industrial PAD, drones, high-level police enforcement instrument, intelligent intercom devices, smart wearables, vending machine, logistics cabinet, etc.
