205102 Iridium 9523 Interface:
The Iridium interface board can provide RUDICS and Short-Burst Data Iridium satellite communications. It also includes a GPS module for positioning and pulse-per-second timing.
(RUDICS is a circuit-switched data call capability between a mobile Iridium modem and an Internet host. Short-Burst Data (SBD) is similar to a text message capability between a mobile Iridium modem and an Internet host or email address. The Iridium module is also capable of modem-to-modem circuit-switched calls and older pre-SBD Iridium text messages.)
The board includes an Iridium 9523 module with SIM card holder and a u-blox MAX-7Q-0 GPS module in a Micromodem-sized form factor such that it can be mounted on the Micromodem stack in certain applications. It also includes an on-board low-power microcontroller and FPGA to allow for custom applications to interface between the Micromodem or other sensors.
