4G/LTE, CAT4 150/50 Mbps, Built-in GPS, 2x Serial I/O
This new VAYU2-4GEC25-E cape provides 4G/LTE,CAT4 connectivity for data communication in EMEA/Asia. 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.
- GSM: B3/B8, WCDMA: B1/B5/B8, FDD-LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20, TDD LTE:B38/B40/B41 bands covering regions/carriers of Asia, Europe, Middle East (please check supported bands with your carrier)
- GPRS, EDGE, 3G/HSPA+, 4G/LTE connectivity
- Up to 150 Mbps (DL)/ 50 Mbps (UL) speed in LTE FDD 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 4G 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 VAYU2-4GEC25-E 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.
