  • EC20 Mini PCIE
  • EC20 Mini PCIe adopts the standard PCI Express® MiniCard form factor (miniPCIe) and provides global network coverage on the connectivity of LTE. It delivers 50Mbps-up and100Mbps-down data rates on LTE FDD networks and can also be fully backward compatible with existing UMTS and GSM/GPRS networks. It contains two variants EC20 Mini PCIe-A and EC20 Mini PCIe-E, which makes it backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/ GPRS networks to ensure that it can connect even in remote areas devoid of 4G or 3G coverage.

EC20 Mini PCIe adopts the standard PCI Express® MiniCard form factor (miniPCIe) and  provides global network coverage on the connectivity of LTE. It delivers 50Mbps-up and100Mbps-down data rates on LTE FDD networks and can also be fully backward compatible with existing UMTS and GSM/GPRS networks. It contains two variants EC20 Mini PCIe-A and EC20 Mini PCIe-E, which makes it backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/ GPRS networks to ensure that it can connect even in remote areas devoid of 4G or 3G coverage.

 

EC20 Mini PCIe supports Rx diversity which allows the end-device to be equipped with two distinct cellular antennas improving the quality and reliability of the wireless connectivity. Leveraging the Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, its antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed. It also combines high-speed wireless connectivity with embedded multi-constellation high-sensitivity positioning GPS+GLONASS receiver.

 

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, WindowsVista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Linux, Android/eCall) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as CPE, router, data card, rugged tablet, automotive, security and industry PDA.

The module is sensitivity to moisture absorption. Before reflow, Module should be baked for 192 hours at temperature 40℃+5℃/-0℃ and <5% RH in low-temperature containers, or 24 hours at temperature 125℃±5℃ in high-temperature containers. Care should be taken that plastic tray is not heat resistant. Module should be taken out before preheating, otherwise, the tray maybe damaged by high-temperature heating.
