Product Description

Add a 3G mobile data connection to the Raspberry Pi

**Raspberry Pi sold separately**

Important information regarding antennas: 

 

The PiloT® is a WAN communications board which provides an HSPA wireless interface for the Raspberry Pi 2. Conforming to the HAT specification, the PiloT® also provides location information using an on-board GNSS solution.*

 

Which PiloT is suitable for my application?

HL8548-G: A 3G / HSPA+ (with 2G fallback) variant for the global market. Ideal for IoT projects and applications requiring location services.

HL8548: A 3G / HSPA+ (with 2G fallback) variant for the global market. Ideal for IoT projects and applications that DO NOT require location services.

HL8518: A 3G / HSPA+ (with 2G fallback) variant for the European market. Ideal for IoT projects and applications that DO NOT require location services.

HL7692: A 4G / LTE (with 2G fallback) variant for the European market. Ideal for 4G, low power IoT projects that DO NOT require location services.

Highly versatile design

The PiloT® is able to communicate with the Raspberry Pi using serial or USB communications, with separate channels for control, data and location data. It can be powered by the Raspberry Pi, or a separate power supply can be used.
When used in CDC-ECM mode over USB, the PiloT® presents as an Ethernet-like WAN device, simplifying control of data sessions. In this mode, PPP is not required; a simple command initiates the session.

Fast and accurate time and location tracking*

The GNSS engine is based on SiRF V technology. GNSS data can be transferred over serial or USB interfaces, providing accurate location information for your application. It can also be used to provide accurate time.*

Compatible with IoT Acceleration Platform

The PiloT® can also be used to transfer MQTT data from a Raspberry Pi to the Sierra Wireless AirVantage® service, offering a rapidly deployable device-to-cloud architecture.

The PiloT® uses a number of I/Os; the remainder are passed through on the 40-pin headers for use by other applications.
