UC15 Mini PCIe


UC15 Mini PCIe is the latest Quectel UMTS/HSDPA module featuring a maximum data rate of 3.6Mbps downlink and 384Kbps uplink. It is designed to provide customers with global network coverage on the connectivity of HSDPA/UMTS, and it is also fully backward compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks through multi-band combination of dual-band UMTS and dual-band GSM.

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

With an extended temperature range from -40°C up to 80°C, UC15 Mini PCIe functions reliably in extreme environments for use outdoors or inside at sites that lack cooling and heating systems.

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces (USB/UART/Analog Audio/LED_WWAN) 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/HSDPA 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
  • Fast time-to-market: Reference designs, evaluation tools and timely technical support minimize design-in time and development efforts
  • Robust mounting and interfaces
