The A7682E from SIMCom is an LTE Cat 1 cellular module that supports LTE-FDD/GSM/GPRS/EDGE. It delivers an uplink data transfer rate of 5 Mbps (LTE Cat 1), 236.8 Kbps (EDGE), 85.6 Kbps (GPRS) and a downlink data transfer rate of 10 Mbps (LTE Cat 1), 236.8 Kbps (EDGE) and 85.6 Kbps (GPRS). This module requires a DC supply of 3.4-4.2 V and can be controlled via USB 2.0, UART, (U)SIM card (1.8V/3V), Analog audio, ADC, I2C and GPIO interfaces.
The A7682E is compatible with SIM800C, SIM868 series (GSM/GPRS modules), which enables smooth migration from 2G products to LTE products. It is available in an LCC+LGA package that measures 19.6 x 19.6 x 2.4 mm and is ideal for telematics, surveillance devices, industrial routers, remote diagnostics and other IoT applications.
