PC/104 CPU Board with GPRS modem?

Started by Udo January 22, 2007
I searched some hours with Google, but could not find much for my
needs.

Anybody knows if there is a PC/104 CPU board with a GSM GPRS modem on
the same single board? I know there are GPRS extension modues but I'm
looking for a single module solution.

Probably I'm demanding too much, but maybe I have luck and some company
builds such boards?... ;)

No much CPU power required, 100 MIPS would be fine.

Thanks for any hints,
Udo

The only onboard solutions I have so far seen were extra PC104 cards just with either GSM/GPRS module or PCMCIA slot for a card. There may be one but not very likely. Even these PC/104 modules were much more expensive than a standalone module.

You will find it a lot cheaper and easier to find the PC/104 CPU of your choice and a standalone module.

Thanks for your reply. I'm not very suprised that there are no combined modules. At the moment the only possibility would probably be a CPU board with CompactFlash slot and a CF modem. Not sure if that's expensive.

So far I found these GSM modules (with GPS options): EuroTech COM-1289: http://www.eurotech.it/main/product.asp?4M=COM-1289 Emac PCM-36E06: http://www.emacinc.com/sbc_pc_addons/pcm_36e06.htm FNM UMTS modem: http://www.fmncom.com/download/PI_alpha_umts_wtm_pc_d.pdf (have no pricing details of these) Do you know about others modules?

You could try a German company http://www.roundsolutions.com/ They have Telit modules and others, on site various documents and their euro price list. PC104 module but expensive http://www.dsl-ltd.co.uk/productspec.aspx?ProdID=PV-1800 Search for GSM or GPRS modems shoul reveal a few others. Siemens and others make these modules, sometimes refered to as Machine to Machine comms or M2M phone/data services. -- Paul Carpenter | paul@pcserviceselectronics.co.uk <http://www.pcserviceselectronics.co.uk/> PC Services <http://www.gnuh8.org.uk/> GNU H8 & mailing list info <http://www.badweb.org.uk/> For those web sites you hate
