With its GSM / GPRS modules Quectel addresses typical embedded applications. These are characterized by the fact that relatively small junks of data are transmitted in wider time spans. Looking at the n speeds of GSM and GPRS the transmission of 100 bytes to a few kBytes is usually done within a few seconds only. The advantage of these cellular systems lies in their worldwide availability and their almost complete local coverage. Of course, reliability plays an important role, therefore Quectel’s motto is „Quality in every step“. This reaches from the usage of Mediatek chip sets, to R&D, to production and finally to the support of customers, where Atlantik Elektronik comes into the game.
Quectel’s GSM / GPRS M-series technically shines with very low power consumption, support of GPRS class 12 and therefore a fast uplink, the scalable support of TCP/IP protocols and the availability of interfaces such as USB, camera, SD card and many more. A further advantage is the support of the full industrial temperature range from -40 to +85°C – very often being the weak point of GSM / GPRS modules. High ESD immunity, extra strong PCB as well as small dimensions help to achieve fault-free, long term operation of the modules.
Based on the know-how in other wireless technologies Atlantik Elektronik is the partner-of-choice when it comes to discussions about GSM / GPRS modules. Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, WiFi and ZigBee are other necessary interfaces to design, for instance, a router. An example is Atlantik‘s own RANGER product family which already combines these technologies. In addition, suitable antennas for internal or external use and even for outdoor applications can be offered. Atlantik Elektronik can support during the design itself, assist when it comes to a qualification or help in choosing a test house. µ-controllers and memories, GPS or displays complete the offering for POS, metering and telematics solutions.
