GL865-QUAD V3 is a quad band GSM/GPRS device based on the Intel 2G cellular chipset and is in VQFN castellation packaging instead of the LCC packaging but maintaining full pad-level compatibility with previous models. The GL865-QUAD V3 has extremely low power consumption, extended temperature range and a compact profile. It features the same performances of its companion module GL865-DUAL but in all GSM bands.

Simple drop-in migration and technology upgrade path to 3G high-speed performance is a natural trade up path with the pi-to-pin compatible HSPA companion module UL865. The GL865-QUAD V3 is recommended for new designs requiring quad band GSM/GPRS coverage and 3G scalability in a compact and robust QFN package giving easy integration and a long life.

The GL865-QUAD V3 makes it possible to run the customer's application inside the module by means its embedded Python Script Interpreter, thus making it the smallest, complete SMT platform for m2m solutions.

The GL865-QUAD V3 is also compliant with eCall EU Directive.

The eCall project is sponsored by the European Commission and it's based on the EU directive E112. It is intended to adopt a black box device installed inside vehicles, wirelessly connected to Emergengy Centers. In case of an emergency such as an accident or by user intervention, the black box and its sensors will send information about the event to such centers, with the chance to establish a voice call for safety measures.
