SC20 series is Quectel’s new generation of multi-mode Smart LTE Cat.4 modules with built-in Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. It supports short-range wireless communication via Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n
and BT4.1 LE, and offers data rate up to 150Mbps. It is ideal for both industrial and consumer applications requiring the highest data-rate and high-speed internet access.

SC20 series comes in five variants: SC20-CE, SC20-E, SC20-A, SC20-AU and SC20-J. This makes it backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks, ensuring that it can be connected even in remote areas devoid of 3G or LTE coverage.

SC20 features multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, a cutting edge antenna technology capable of transmitting multiple data streams on multiple transmitters to multiple receivers.
The antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed. The module also combines high-speed wireless connectivity with embedded multi-constellation and high-sensitivity GPS+GLONASS+BeiDou receiver for positioning.
 
A rich set of interfaces (such as LCM, Camera, Touch Panel, MIC, SPK, UART, USB, I2C) and abundant drivers (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Linux) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications, such as CPE, wireless POS, smart metering, router, data card, automotive, smart phone, digital signage, alarm panel, security and industry PDA.
 

Key benefits

● Integrates Android OS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GNSS into one module

● Worldwide LTE, UMTS/HSPA+ and GSM/GPRS/EDGE coverage

● MIMO technology meets demands for data rate and link reliability in modem wireless communication systems

● Multi-constellation GNSS receiver available for applications requiring fast and accurate fixes in any environment

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.
