LISA-U2 - UMTS/HSPA(+) modules

With 6-band W-CDMA(UMTS) and quad-band GPRS/EDGE, LISA-U2 modules are suited for networks worldwide.

EVK-U20 available from our webshop (UK & ROI orders only)

With 6-band W-CDMA(UMTS) and quad-band GPRS/EDGE, LISA-U2 modules are suited for networks worldwide. Features include data-rates of up to 21.1 Mb/s (downlink), a rich set of internet protocols, very small footprint, very low power consumption and extended operating temperature range. LISA-U2 modules provide fully integrated access to u-blox positioning products. Antenna diversity permits LISA-U2 modules to provide the highest data speeds.

LISA-U2 modules are ideal for consumer/industrial applications requiring high-speed data transmission, and machine-to-machine applications. They are the perfect choice for mobile Internet terminals, tablets, in-car infotainment, connected navigation systems, security and surveillance systems, eCall, fleet management, metering, anti-theft systems, and other automotive applications.

The compact SMT package enables easy manufacturing, and migration from u-blox SARA, LEON, and other LISA modules is simple. This allows customers to take maximum advantage of their hardware and software investments, and provides very short time-to-market. An extensive set of national regulatory and operator certificates is available. RIL software for Android and Embedded Windows is available free of charge.
