Ravinder London-based embedded engineer launched an amazing LTE HAT on Kickstarter, Ravinder has already created and delivered two successful campaigns USB to TTL & Sense HAT for Pico. Now he has come up with PiTalk 4G IoT HAT which is compatible with all Raspberry Pi Models having 40 Pins GPIO on it and also he has taken care of non-Raspberry Pi users by introducing 4G USB Dongle which supports all platforms that just need a USB port to get started with it.
PiTalk IoT HAT can be used as a smartphone as it supports SMS, Calling features, Video calling, and many other smartphone features can be used with PiTalk. PiTalk uses the Quectel EG25-G Cat 4 module With maximum downlink and uplink speeds of 150 Mbps and 50 Mbps under LTE, respectively, and backward compatibility with existing 2G networks, the Quectel EG25-G Cat 4 module offers connectivity even in distant locations lacking 3G or 4G coverage. Additionally, MIMO technology satisfies the requirements for data throughput and link dependability.
