Telit has is to unveil a new portfolio of short-range modules for 2009, as well as a small GSM/GPRS module.

In addition to offering the existing cellular technologies GSM/GPRS, UMTS/Wedge/HSDPA and CDMA, Telit now also offers Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Short Range RF (proprietary mesh and point-to-point for unlicensed frequency bands), Wireless MBus and GPS machine-to-machine (M2M) modules.

The 15 new modules are now available.

Telit is also unveiling the GE865, the latest extension to its GE product range.

The Ball Grid Array (BGA) module is based on a single-chip solution with a form factor of 22 x 22 x 3mm.

Telit claimed that this makes it currently the smallest globally available GSM/GPRS module.

The GE865 can be incorporated into high-volume M2M applications in which the module size and low energy consumption play a key role.

Thanks to quad-band technology, the module can be operated on all of the global GSM networks and makes all of the various data services possible over GSM/GPRS networks.

An integrated TCP/IP protocol stack provides support for UDP, FTP and SMTP via AT commands.

GE865 also features Run AT Commands.

This feature allows users to run any AT Command via SMS or TCP.

The remote control of different events on the application side is simplified by using text messages from any phone for both activation commands and receiving replies.

Some of the major applications are related to monitoring of GPIOs, roaming, battery level, voltage, or module state with the possibility to send alerts in the event that conditions change.

The GE865-Quad also enables its use in an extended temperature range from -30C to +80C.

The GE865 can be fully integrated with previous Telit platforms and can be implemented easily into existing designs.

The module is ideal for locating people or objects in both professional and consumer applications.

It will be fully certified for all international markets and is already available in sample quantities.
