CubieBoards support Ethernet and WIFI to access the network in most cases. But if you need to access the Internet any where, you need to use the mobile communication network. As we known, WCDMA is most widely used mobile communication standard all over the world. It shares the more than 80% market now, and has the stronger business ability. So we decided to develop a WCDMA module with can be used with all CubieBoards. This module not only can be used for development, but also can be used to assemble the finished products.
Name: 3G Module WCDMA
Property： Software open source, Hardware open, Production materials closed
Owner: CubieTech Limited
Target: Developer, Geek, Maker, Scholar…and finished products Manufacturer
3G module WCDMA is a 3G module based on MF210/UC15 mini PCIE card that adopts WCDMA standard. It’s a USB interface add-on board for CubieBoards, and can bring data connection service for it. Because of its easy to use and easy to assembly, this board can used in development together with CubieBoards and also can be used in finished products.
MF210/UC15 can support GSM, EDGE, and WCDMA network, and the transmit speed is HSDPA 7.2Mb/s, HSUPA 5.75Mb/s at maximum. It supports 2100, 1900, 1800, 900, 850MHz Frequency Band. More MF210 details refer to this link.
In the shipping package, we supply the USB cable and the external antenna to obtain the best signal. If you don’t like the USB cable and antenna in finished products, you can do some modifications. The USB signal can use header pins to connect and the antenna also can be replaced by another type after the signal matching and test.
