Description: Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this breakout board and module, check our cellular section for some other options. This page is for reference only.

This is a breakout board for the Telit GE864 Quad cell module.The board comes with a module installed, as well as a U.FL antenna connector. Standard 0.1" spaced headers allow easy access to a full range of functionality. Just connect your power supply (3.8V), SIM card, antenna, serial connection and a power button and you’re off and running!

The low profile and small size of the unique BGA package for the GE864-QUAD enable the design of very compact applications. Since connectors are eliminated, the solution cost is significantly reduced compared to conventional mounting.

With its ultra-compact design and extended temperature range, the Telit GE864 product line is the perfect platform for high-volume M2M applications and mobile data devices. Additional features such as integrated TCP/IP protocol stack and serial multiplexer extend functionality of the application at no additional cost.

State-of-the-art ADC, DAC, GPIO, SPI and I2C interfaces provide connectivity to external peripherals such as sensors and displays.


Dimensions: 2.1 x 2.1" (53.3 x 53.3mm)

Customer Comments

  • Does anyone have a diagram of them connecting this up? Or any good tutorial?

  • This breakout seems to be extremely over priced. The 864 module is about $80, so the PCB [with nothing but holes and one connector], and soldering on the module is $70!!!
    Am I missing something?

  • Donny: You would use the SIM Card Breakout Board under Related Products. You can see the pinouts for it in the zoom shot (left hand side).

  • A previous Telit module I worked with had a SIM card slot built in. Is this the case with this break-out?

  • Have you guys considered using the new GE864-QUAD ANTENNA module from Telit? It’s a GE864 with an embedded antenna, could be much more useful than the simple GE864. The GE864-QUAD ANTENNA can be found at http://www.telit.com/en/products/gsm-gprs.php?p_id=12&p_ac=show&p=77
