Wireless CPU family

December 2008 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

3G GSM and CDMA solutions for wireless alarm, automotive and tracking.

Wavecom has introduced two new members of its sleek Q26 series wireless CPU family. The Q26 Extreme offers dual-mode 2G and 3G to enable data-intensive applications like realtime video streaming for the security or automotive industries. In addition, the Q26 Elite offers CDMA 2000 1x wireless voice and data connectivity in the same form-factor, so customers can design their application once and connect using any cellular protocol, anywhere around the world.

Extreme performance

The 3G Q26 Extreme is equipped with antenna diversity and runs at peak data rates up to 7,2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA with automated 2G/3G handover. It supports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE on the 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz bands and tri-band HSPA on the 850, 1900, 2100 MHz bands for global network compatibility.

It can be used as a smart wireless modem, connecting to back end IT systems securely, sharing the system load of the final product with a host processor; alternatively, it provides users with the option to embed their application directly on the device’s integrated ARM9 32-bit processor.

In addition, external or embedded applications written for Q2686 or Q2687 Wireless CPU devices are fully portable, without additional software coding thanks to the smart operating systems.

To support the unique needs of automotive, finance and security customers, the Q26 Extreme is available with inSIM, the Wavecom integrated subscriber identity module, for enhanced durability in extreme environmental conditions. It also comes with unique Open AT Plug-Ins designed to make integrating best-in-class security and GPS technology simple. If the customer prefers, the Wavecom Q26 Extreme can also interface with Microsoft Windows CE.

To further reduce total cost of ownership, the new Q26 Extreme supports the unique, secure Wavecom Intelligent Device Service offer, providing customers with access to the world’s most powerful Web-based service platform for upgrading and monitoring networked products – a critical factor in maintaining functionality through ongoing network changes.

Elite performance

The second new product, Q26 Elite, features up-to-date CDMA technology and supports GPS, making it uniquely suited for fleet management and tracking applications with E911 requirements. In addition, it provides customers using CDMA an opportunity to upgrade as new technology becomes available. Both Q26 Elite and Q26 Extreme are automotive grade products, meeting some of the toughest quality requirements in the industry.
