Description: Replacement: None. We no longer carry this particular breakout or module but check out the cellular category for more cellular modules and evaluation boards. This page is for reference only.

This is a breakout board for the new Telit GE865 Quad cell module. The board comes with the 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 (3.22-4.5VDC, 3.8VDC nominal), SIM card, antenna, serial connection and a power button and you’re off and running!

The new GE865 product family introduces the smallest GSM/GPRS Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) modules in the market. The low profile and small size of the unique BGA package for the GE865-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 GE865 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 ADCs, DACs and GPIOs provide connectivity to external peripherals such as sensors and displays.


Dimensions: 1.8x1.8" (45.7x45.7mm)

Customer Comments

  • Do you have the .brd files for this part? I’m curious what the traces look like for the antenna connector. Thanks

  • Any hints on how to route to the antenna pads in Eagle? I assume that the outer (ground) ring is ignored, and the center pin ‘just flows’ when it’s assembled? Can you supply either the .brd file, or a pic of the antenna area on the PCB? Thanks!

  • Do you plan to make the eagle board files available ?

  • beware that while the module requires ~3.8v to operate, the I/O pins are only 3v tolerant (2.8v really)! You’ll likely need to do some level shifting and order a 2.8v regulator from somewhere to interface this to most PICs.
