u-blox introduced the LUCY family of high-speed wireless modules. LUCY is based on UMTS/HSDPA and supports the world’s fastest globally adopted mobile communications standard. LUCY is ideal for M2M applications like high-bandwidth multimedia systems for mobile Internet and VoIP routing, in-car multimedia, streaming video for remote media panels, and transfer of large data volumes for medical diagnostics, security and surveillance.
LUCY supports tri-band UMTS/HSDPA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE class 12 with embedded TCP/IP stack and SSL client. A key feature of LUCY is its low idle-mode power consumption of less than 2 mA, and wide operating voltage, 3.2 – 4.5 V. The module includes an assisted GPS client for on- and offline telematics applications, and comes in a compact 45 x 37.5 x 3 mm package with 60-pin board-to-board connector. The highly-integrated module supports both voice and data, and requires only an external antenna.
Availability of samples and evaluation kit is expected by the end of April, 2010.
