3G/HSPA+ 14.4/5.76 Mbps, Built-in GPS, 2x Serial I/O

This new VAYU2-3GUC20-G cape provides 3G/HSPA+ connectivity for data communication all over the world with its global bands support. It meets the ever increasing data throughput requirements in M2M sector, specifically for video, voice-over-IP, and high speed realtime logging applications. The cape includes an integrated GPS/GLONASS receiver for precise location.

  • Global GSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/900/900/1900/2100 bands covering all regions/carriers of the world
  • GPRS, EDGE, 3G/HSPA+ connectivity
  • Up to 14.4 Mbps (DL)/ 5.76 Mbps (UL) speed in WCDMA mode
  • Integrated GPS capability provides standard compliant NMEA based geolocation using GPS/GLONASS systems
  • SMS Send/Receive
  • Push-Push MicroSIM card connector
  • Main and Diversity antennas for enhanced connectivity
  • Stackable BeagleBone header to mount other capes
  • This 3G module is FCC/CE/PTCRB/GCF certified (plus many national approvals)

The cape communicates with Beaglebone over HS USB , utilising its USB host port. To compensate for this used USB port on Beaglebone, we have provided an USB host port on our cape for connecting user devices. The cape is shipped with a mini USB-B to USB-A cable for connectivity to BeagleBone system, while it is mounted on standard BeagleBone header.

We provide full software support for VAYU2-3GUC20-G which includes kernel modules with drivers, Device tree overlays and sample wvdial files.

As an added value for M2M applications, 2x utility UART ports with a robust +/- 15KV ESD protection and +/- 25V receiver voltage tolerance are provided on these capes to overcome the standard BeagleBone UART’s 3.3V level limitation. Standard 3-pin JST connectors are used to connect to UART signals.

Technical Support:
