Eurotech Introduces Wireless Communication Module

By Niladri Sekhar Nath, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Eurotech this week introduced its new COM-1289, a high-integration wireless PC/104 communication module capable of precision GPS satellite positioning and seamless communication in 900/1800 and 1900MHz cellular GSM/GPRS networks.

The COM-1289 is based on the latest low power, high-sensitivity Fastrax iTrax03 GPS receiver technology. That makes the product capable of performing positioning calculations in complex urban canyon and dense foliage environments. The position can be updated at 1-3Hz, and GPS data is available in NMEA or binary protocol.
The internationally approved Siemens (News - Alert) MC55 tri-band GSM/GPRS wireless terminal supports SMS, high-speed GPRS data, fax and voice communication. An onboard locking SIM-card slot can be easily accessed with the module installed in a system. Optionally, an external SIM card interface can be connected to the module. The audio I/O-port can be used to connect to low power devices or a headset for voice communication.
According to a news release, the peripheral interfaces built into Eurotech’s product include two 16C550-compatible, RS-232 level serial ports that provide traditional hardwired serial I/O functions for legacy communications. The GPS and GSM/GPRS terminal are accessed through a standard UART interface that is supported by all operating systems.
Eurotech said that the board configuration is fully software-controlled; all resources can be set with the module installed in the system. Settings—such as serial port base address, interrupts and GPS communication protocol—can be customized at any time and configuration data is stored in the onboard non-volatile EEPROM. The jumperless board configuration increases flexibility and increases mechanical reliability.
This rugged RoHS compliant module makes the most of all the latest technologies and is compatible with all Eurotech rugged high-reliability computers, PC/104 and PC/104+ CPUs and peripheral expansion modules.
The COM-1289 is compatible with embedded operating systems such as Linux, Windows-CE and XPE. The module also comes with easy-to-use GPS and GPRS antennas and interface cabling.
The Eurotech Group develops innovative high performance and low power embedded computing systems.
The group is a global family of leading-edge technology companies covering the most important and active market areas across three continents.
