UC20 Mini PCIe

UMTS/HSPA+ Module

Quectel UC20 Mini PCIe is a powerful function UMTS/HSPA+ module featuring a maximum data rate of 14.4Mbps downlink and 5.76Mbps uplink. It is designed to provide customers with global network coverage on the connectivity of HSPA+/WCDMA, and is also fully backward compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks through multi-band combination of quad-band GSM and dual-band WCDMA.

The compact profile of 51.0×30.0×4.9mm in standard Mini PCIe form factor and the high integration level enable integrators and developers to easily design their applications and truly benefit from the low power consumption and convenient Plug and Play Function.

With an extended operation temperature range from -40°C up to 80°C, UC20 Mini PCIe functions reliably in extreme environments, and thus is ideal for use outdoors or inside at sites that lack cooling and heating systems.

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/PCM/LED_WWAN#/GNSS) and abundant functions (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows CE, Linux, Android) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of commercial and industrial M2M applications.

Key benefits

  • Worldwide UMTS/HSPA+ and GSM/GPRS/EDGE coverage
  • Standard Mini PCIe form factor maximizes the convenience for customers to design and use
  • High-quality data and image transmission even in hazard conditions and dark environment
  • High sensitivity GNSS receiver available for applications requiring fast and accurate fixes in any location
  • Fast time-to-market: reference designs, evaluation tools and timely technical support minimize design-in time and development efforts
  • Robust mounting and interfaces
