l-LTE v1.07 - ARDUINO, BEAGLEBONE & RASBERRY PI 4G modular shield , our latest released product, compact as 1.35"x1.93" (34.29 x 49.02mm) and with weight around 11g, it is the first and the most compact 4G modular shield available today.
l-LTE series shares the same ITBMM interface [itbrainpower.net modular modem interface] with all our previous modular modems: dual SIM GSM only version (c-uGSM dual SIM shield), GSM + BTH 3.0 version (h-nanoGSM shield) and the 3G/UMTS version (d-u3G shield). Together, are parts of our modular modem designed around our original "plug-able boards" concept.
Accessories as: 4V and 5 V switching power supplies (g-SPS v1.02 LiPOL and DDRV), i-hatGSM3G (RASPBERRY PI adapter board for ITBP modular modem shields) and j-328GSM3GLader (Arduino Micro / Arduino Mini / Arduino Nano adapter board for ITBP modular modem shields) are pin to pin compatible with l-LTE.

l-LTE shields was released without performance compromises and brings to you the best market solution at reasonable cost and becomes the reference for this new product class. The l-LTE 4G modem family was designed and it is manufactured in EUROPE by R&D Software Solutions team -awarded in 2006 with the GST SSC Bronze Award.

l-LTE v1.07 4G / LTE modular modem integrates in this format the following main features:
  • high performances GNSS engine embedded with parallel GPS and Glonass satellites interpolation for best accuracy and signal sensitivity. Supports active and passive GNSS antennas.
  • USB serial connectivity adapter with RaspberryPI, BeagleBone, Windows and Linux. USB connection, offers multiple serial ports support for concurrent application/threads communication.
  • 2.8-5V auto-level digital interfaces (UART TX+RX / RESET / POWER ON-OFF / RI / STS / RTS / CTS / SLEEP), for direct connection with Arduino boards, BeagleBone, Raspberry PI or any other 2.8V up to 5V micro-controller board
  • build in Lithium Polymer battery charger. Depending on powering schema, all boards version can be used with or without LiPol battery.
  • Plug-able accessories as: switching power supply (stand alone or with LiPol usage), adapter boards for RPI, Arduino and BeagleBone and (future) u-controller boards, other.
  • POWER ON / OFF and RESET push micro switches
  • Standard size SIM support
  • uFL or SMA F antenna connector [4G side] and uFL antenna connector [GNSS side]

The l-LTE modular modem series answers at your needs for a fully lightweight, integrated, fully functional and affordable cellular 4G modem shield / platform. Smart complete design of the l-LTE modular shield brings you the flexibility and easiness in integration, wherever your platform and application. Beyond ARDUINO / BEAGLEBONE / RASPBERRY PI / others hobby / DYI platforms integration, the l-LTE family can be easily and in a time manner incorporated into your equipment regardless your previous experience in the modem technology. The l-LTE series represents your best choice for usage into a wide range of designs requiring robust 4G/3G mobile communications and reliable performance, having in plus a embedded multi constelation satellite positioning engine.

Manufactured in EU.
