Telit Wireless Solutions has launched its GL865-DUAL V3 banded for Asian, European, and Latin American GSM/GPRS cellular markets. The product is a backwards-compatible version of the company's GL865 product family but is based on the latest Intel single-chip, 65nm process CMOS technology. The new generation GL865 operates with 1.8V GPIOs versus its predecessor’s 2.8V, minimizing power consumption.
The dual-band 900/1800MHz GL865-DUAL V3 supports the Python programming language and features VQFN packaging versus LCC castellation in the original GL865, maintaining full pad-level compatibility. Fully voice capable, the GL865-DUAL V3 provides analog and PCM audio inputs and outputs for applications such as voice enabled alarm panels, mHealth patient monitors, and specialty phones such as those for the elderly or sensory-impaired. For easy integration with high level operating systems, the product includes cellular modem (RIL) device drivers for most operating system platforms.
The GL865-DUAL V3 will be available starting December, 2012 with a range of development tools, Python scripts, associated documentation, and engineering design samples available now.
