EC20 Mini PCIe adopts the standard PCI Express® MiniCard form factor (miniPCIe) and provides global network coverage on the connectivity of LTE. It delivers 50Mbps-up and100Mbps-down data rates on LTE FDD networks and can also be fully backward compatible with existing UMTS and GSM/GPRS networks. It contains two variants EC20 Mini PCIe-A and EC20 Mini PCIe-E, which makes it backward-compatible with existing EDGE and GSM/ GPRS networks to ensure that it can connect even in remote areas devoid of 4G or 3G coverage.

EC20 Mini PCIe supports Rx diversity which allows the end-device to be equipped with two distinct cellular antennas improving the quality and reliability of the wireless connectivity. Leveraging the Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, its antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed. It also combines high-speed wireless connectivity with embedded multi-constellation high-sensitivity positioning GPS+GLONASS receiver.

A rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces and abundant functionalities (USB drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Linux, Android/eCall) extend the applicability of the module to a wide range of M2M applications such as CPE, router, data card, rugged tablet, automotive, security and industry PDA.
