Siemens expands its GSM module offering

19 March 2008 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

At the recent 3GSM conference in Barcelona, Siemens announced the latest addition to its GSM module portfolio. The MC75i, TC65i, and TC63i product platform incorporates EDGE, GPRS, GSM, and Java technology, optimised size and performance that comes courtesy of an ARM9 processor, and an RLS Monitor for jamming detection.

Apart from the difference in lengths, the new platform’s modules are compatible with the existing MC75, TC65, and TC63 modules. Built on a common technology platform, the three new modules offer Quad-Band GSM, TCP/IP functionality and M2M interfaces such as a serial or I²C bus. Engineered for compatibility, they share the same size, mounting array and command set. The different modules’ data transmission speeds and the Java open platform functionality vary to meet the needs of various M2M applications such as metering, security, remote maintenance and control.

The MC75i enables deployment of EDGE technology to transmit large amounts of data. It also features a TCP/IP stack, serial and USB ports, and an RIL driver for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices.

The TC65i is a high-performance, open-platform module powered by the Java Virtual Machine. The Java platform runs on an embedded ARM9 processor and memory fine-tuned specifically for the module. With this powerful platform and processor combination, GPRS technology, a TCP-IP stack, and an array of industrial interfaces such as SPI, I²C bus, A-D/D-A converter and GPIOs, the TC65i can help accelerate a product’s time to market and cut development costs.

Featuring GPRS class-12 functionality and an integrated TCP/IP stack, the TC63i comes without the onboard software developer platform. This makes it suitable for M2M applications that already use a micro­controller but need a high-performance wireless communications link. The TC63i is the entry-level option in this triple-module package. It can be used to satisfy basic GPRS needs, and as demand for EDGE technology grows, developers can upgrade to the MC75i without having to redevelop their application.
