Designed for global market, SIM868 is integrated with a high performance GSM/GPRS engine and a GNSS engine.
SIM868 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS module that works on frequencies GSM 850MHz, EGSM 900MHz, DCS 1800MHz and PCS 1900MHz.
SIM868 features GPRS multi-slot class 12/class 10 (optional) and supports the GPRS coding schemes CS-1, CS-2, CS-3 and CS-4.
The GNSS solution offers best-in-class acquisition and tracing sensitivity, Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF) and accuracy.
With built-in LNA, SIM868 doesn’t need external LNA. SIM868 can track as low as -167dBm signal even without network assistance.
The SIM868 has excellent low power consumption characteristic (acquisition 24mA, tracking 21mA).
SIM868 supports various location and navigation applications, including autonomous GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, QZSS, SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, GAGAN, MSAS) and A-GPS.
With a tiny configuration of 17.6*15.7*2.3mm, SIM868 can meet almost all the space requirements in customers’ applications, such as smart phone, PDA and other mobile devices.
SIM868 is a SMT+LGA package with 77 pads, and provides all hardware interfaces between the module and customers’ boards.
