Eurotech releases the COM-1288, a new GSM-R/Tri-band GPRS Module for railways applications

Amaro, Udine (Italy) ? May 10th, 2005. Today Eurotech ( www.eurotech.it ) releases the COM-1288, a new small and smart PC/104 board that is the ideal choice for mobile communications and global positioning applications.

The COM-1288 combines wireless Tri-band-GPRS or GPRS/GSM-R connectivity with a low power 12-channel parallel-tracking GPS receiver in an embedded module. This low power highly integrated rugged board is the ideal choice for computing applications requiring worldwide GPRS roaming, precise GPS positioning or mobile GSM-R communication for railways applications. The COM-1288 module is built to resist high mechanical, thermal shocks and extended temperature ranges.

The board can be configured through a flexible EEPROM that stores the board settings and does not need banks of interrupt or base address jumpers: configuring the COM-1288 is easy even after the system is completely assembled.
A standard SIM card can be installed onboard into a locking cardholder, or onto an external SIM card carrier. The board supports full interrupt sharing for all the serial ports. A 16 bit wide programmable digital I/O can be used to interface to other low power digital devices, whereas the two automotive level digital inputs can be used to connect to any 12V or 24V digital signals. An audio interface port for a headset is provided in order to give maximum comfort with user voice communications.
