Arrow Israel has announced the expansion of its collaboration with Quectel Wireless Solutions, which provides cellular modules in G5, LTE, LTE-A, LPWA, C-V2X, GSM / GPRS, UMTS / HSPA technologies, smart modules and GNSS modules. Arrow Electronics, in collaboration with Shiratech Solutions, has developed several boards for quick addition of Quectel’s modules to development boards and systems: boards with an Arduino Shield connection or a 96Borads standard connection. In the coming weeks, Arrow will offer some of Shirhatech’s development boards free of charge.
Quectel is considered an IoT leader and provides a one-stop-shop service for cellular modules. There are more than 100 million devices in the world that contain at least one Quectel module. The rate doubles every year. The company provides a wide range of 4G modules in CAT1 to CAT20 categories, in various configurations of MiniPCIE, LGA and M.2. Quectel also launched a series of two 5G families for Sub 6G and for mmWave, based Qualcomm processors.
GNSS and Smart Modules
Quectel provides a variety of GNSS products, including High Precision Location and Timing, Dead Reckoning, Multi-frequency receivers, Multi-constellation support, Raw Data and more. It includes also Android and Linux-based complete modules (Qualcomm processors, RAM, Flash, Cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth). The modules come with a software platform that simplifies and shortens development time and reduces the total cost of design.
Service in Israel
Quectel operates a local office that provides direct response and consulting, planning, sales and testing services tailored to the communications service providers demands around the world.
