BG95

LTE Cat M1/NB2/EGPRS

BG95 is a series of multi-mode LTE Cat M1/Cat NB2/EGPRS module with integrated GNSS functionality. It is fully compliant with 3GPP Rel. 14 specification and offers a maximum data rate of 375Kbps downlink and 1.2Mbps uplink. It features ultralow power consumption by leveraging the integrated RAM/flash as well as the ARM Cortex A7 processor supporting ThreadX, achieving up to 70% reduction in PSM leakage and 85% reduction in eDRX current consumption compared to its predecessor.

BG95 boasts a comprehensive set of hardware-based security features and enables trusted applications to run directly on the Cortex A7 TrustZone engine. As well, BG95 provides pin-to-pin compatibility with Quectel LTE module EG91/EG95, LPWA module BG96 & BC95, UMTS/HSPA module UG95/UG96 and GSM/GPRS module M95.

With a cost-effective SMT form factor of 23.6mm × 19.9mm × 2.3mm and high integration level, BG95 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) and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Linux and Android) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as wireless POS, smart metering, tracking, wearable devices, etc.
