MC60

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

MC60 is a quad-band full-featured GSM/GPRS module using LCC castellation package. With an extensive set of internet protocols (TCP, UDP, PPP, FTP, HTTP and SSL*), it has integratedthe GNSS technology for satellite navigation. Based on the latest 2G chipset, it has the optimal performance in SMS & data transmission as well as audio service even in harsh environments. It features Dual SIM Single Standby function.

MC60 module 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, making cold start TTFF comparable to that in hot start. EASYTM™(Embedded Assist System) technology is also supported. It enables the GNSS engine to achieve a very fast first fix when there is no enough satellite information. MC60 additionally supports working in proven AlwaysLocate™ and GLP (GNSS Low Power) modes, which ensure great positioning accuracy while with verylow 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, low power consumption and dual SIM card interfaces make MC60 the best choice for a wide range of M2M applications, such as automotive, telematics, wearable device, asset tracker, pet tracker, and so on.
