Product of the Day: Communication PC/104 Module with GPS and GPRS/GSM/PCS
The spread of GPS technology into everyday products will become the norm soon, it just won't be just an expensive option in luxury cars. With this new PC/104 module manufactured by Emac Inc., GPS technology will spread a little faster in other applications. EMAC offers a comprehensive line of products and services that includes Single Board Computers, peripherals, custom engineering, and manufacturing.
EMAC's just released PCM-36E06, is an advanced communication PC/104 module that can be configured to provide Serial port, GPS, GPRS/GSM/PCS cell modem, and Dial-Up modem capabilities. The PCM-36E06 uses a dual UART, where channel A can be configured as an RS232 Serial port or GPS and channel B can be configured as a Dial-Up or GPRS/GSM/PCS Fax/Modem. This gives the PCM-36E06 the flexibility to handle most communication needs.
The combination of GPS and a GPRS/GSM/PCS modem on a single PC/104 module is extremely useful. Virtually all GPS applications that require communication must do so wirelessly. And the best wireless solution is GPRS/GSM/PCS Cell modem. The PCM-36E06 incorporates both of these capabilities into a single PC/104 module.
The rugged PC/104 form factor makes it an excellent fit for small and harsh environment applications. The PCM-36E06 Advanced Communication module has a low cost and a low power consumption of 300mA (typical @ 5V). The cost of the PCM-36E06 configured with GPS and GPRS/GSM/PCS is $512 USD in quantity one including antennas. The PCM-36E06 configured with GPS only is $210.
