MC90

LCC Quad-band GSM/GPRS/GNSS/Wi-Fi Module

MC90 is a quad-band full-featured GSM/GPRS/GNSS/Wi-Fi module using LCC castellation package. It supports hybrid positioning technology, which includes GNSS, Cell ID and Wi-Fi aided positioning. The module also features low power consumption and supports dual SIM single standby function.

Thanks to the hybrid positioning technology, MC90 supports position tracking under both indoor and outdoor environments. GNSS+Cell ID+Wi-Fi hybrid positioning ensures that the module can track position even in weak or no signal areas; and Wi-Fi positioning is used to ensure position tracking indoors. MC90 also supports EPOTM technology which provides predicted Extended Prediction Orbit to speed up TTFF without the need of any extra server. Based on EPO data, QuecFastFix Online function further reduces TTFF in cold start. EASYTM technology enables a very fast first fix when there is no enough satellite information. GLP (GNSS Low Power) power saving mode ensures great positioning accuracy while with ultra-low power consumption. The built-in LNA provides the module with improved RF sensitivity and exceptional acquisition/tracking performances even in weak signal areas.

The compact form factor, great positioning performance, low power consumption and dual (U)SIM interfaces make MC90 a best choice for a wide range of M2M applications, such as bicycle-sharing system, student ID card, vehicle tracker, wearable device (smartwatch), pet tracker, asset tracker, driving recorder, etc.
