The SIM7600E-L1C is a Multi-Band LTE-FDD/HSPA+/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSM module solution in an SMT type that supports LTE CAT1 up to 10Mbps data transfer. It has strong extension capability with rich interfaces including UART, and USB2. 0, GPIO, etc.

Wireless communications in the world of electronics and prototyping have always been a rapidly evolving area, with new networks and protocols being introduced at a wildly rapid pace, which each offer distinct benefits and improvements over previous iterations and technologies. However, while these new networks and protocols are undoubtedly better than what we used to deal with in the past, some of them are quite complex in nature and require advanced knowledge and expertise to get working just right – especially when considering the modem complexity required for both high speeds and stable connections.

Fortunately, as Makers in a beautifully modern world, these higher levels of complexity are not quite as daunting as they would have been in the past, as we can now simply get awesome modules like the SIM7600E LTE Cat-1 HAT for Raspberry Pi, which take away all of those complexities in order to provide a simplified, powerful and very functional way for us to take advantage of LTE and wireless comm’s. These modules are specially designed to make your life as a Maker as easy as possible, while still giving you all the benefits that LTE Cat-1 communications can offer. They are designed in the classic Pi HATs style so as to provide excellent compatibility and ease of use and are built to allow you to get your projects connected with impressive networking capabilities, even in remote and hard-to-reach places.

In terms of support and compatibility, we’ve been impressed with just how versatile this Pi HAT really is, as despite being a part of the Pi HATs range, offering simple support for Raspberry Pi via the classic 40 Pin GPIO, this HAT is also perfectly compatible with Arduino Boards as well as many other STM32 based boards via the 15 Pin Control Interface. As such, even if you love working with Arduino, the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, the Orange Pi, or almost any other boards with UART capabilities, you can take full advantage of the awesome features that the SIM7600E LTE HAT is ready to offer.

Please Note: This Pi HAT can operate on both 3.3V and 5V DC, and this can be selected by utilizing the included jumper to tie either voltage pin to the VCCIO Pin. However, it’s important to remember that this must be done while the module is unpowered to avoid any unnecessary damage.
