3G EVDO Embedded Modem

The Skywire® Embedded EVDO 3G modem is a member of the Skywire® family of plug-in cellular products. The 3G EVDO modem supports CDMA EV-DO rev A and integrates GPS and GLONASS receivers for worldwide positioning coverage. GPS & GLONASS use a separate, dedicated U.FL connector to maximize receive sensitivity.

The 3G EVDO is end of life. It is not recommended for new design (NRND).

We strongly recommend migrating to any of our LTE modems. Got questions, please send us a note.
