Telit GL865 QUAD V3


Product Description

The GL865-QUAD V3 is a quad band GSMIGPRS module based on the latest release of Intel's 2G cellular chipset, protecting our customers· design investments with long­term availability. This variant features VQFN packaging in lieu of LCC castellation of the original GL865 but maintains full pad-level compatibility with previous models, thereby providing a direct replacement path for applications based on the highly popular and widely deployed GL865-QUAD. Simple drop-in migration and technology upgrade path to 3G high-speed performance is also available with pin-to­pin compatible HSPA companion module UL865.


The product is highly recommended for new designs requiring quad band GSMIGPRS coverage and 3G scalabil­ity in a compact and robust QFN package delivering easy integration and reduced impact on final application costs. An embedded SIM-chip is also available as a mounting option.

Family Concept

The Telit xL865 family was conceived to address system integrators and developers needing to start with low volumes (LCC mount) as well as those already running high volumes (VQFN mount). Its ultra-compact pack- age allows integration into very small devices. The family includes products that are pin-to-pin and API compatible in GSM I GPRS, CDMA I 1xRTT and UMTS I HSPA.


Global quad-band coverage. Limited operator coverage in North America due to 2G footprint reduction policies.
