The ML865G1 Series from Telit are LTE UE Cat M1/NB2 modules that have been designed for IoT applications offering optimized power consumption and enhanced coverage. They have a maximum downlink data rate of 588 Kbps and an uplink data rate of up to 1 Mbps. The modules support features like Power Saving Mode (PSM) and the extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX). PSM and eDRX allow the devices to wake up periodically to deliver only minimal amounts of data to the networks and then go back to sleep for most of the time, thus allowing prolonged battery operation.
The ML865G1 series require a DC supply of 3.8 V and can be controlled via USB 2.0, UART, SPI, I2C, GPIO, ADC and SIM interfaces. They support GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo), VoLTE (planned) and provide enhanced coverage of up to +15 dB/+20 dB in maximum coupling loss (MCL). This series is available in a VQFN package that measures 24.4 x 24.4 x 2.6 mm with an antenna interface and is ideal for asset tracker, smart metering, smart parking, smart agriculture, waste collection, industrial sensors, healthcare monitors and home automation applications.
