Out‑Of‑The‑Box Rapid Prototyping Solution For IoT Applications That Support GSM, UMTS And CDMA Networks

Posted by Industry News on

u-blox C027 Mbed enabled Internet of Things kit

The u‑blox C027 application board serves as a rapid prototyping solution for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications that require support for GSM, UMTS, and CDMA networks. 

The board comes with a MAX‑M8Q GPS/GNSS receiver and a LISA UMTS/CDMA or SARA GSM cellular module, allowing a smooth development of location‑aware, global communication applications. 

The C027 utilizes the powerful and flexible open‑source ARM Mbed development platform that provides free-of-charge software libraries, hardware designs, and online software tools for professional and rapid prototyping. 

The platform supplies access to a high‑level standards‑based C/C++ SDK for developing applications on the u‑blox C027, an extensive component database of drivers for peripheral components, and online compiler and developer tools for effective reuse and collaboration on designs to build products as fast as possible.


  • Quick prototyping with Arm® Mbed™ on integrated host CPU
  • Powerful, user‑programmable Cortex‑M3 microprocessor
  • Compatible with a standard‑based form factor with expansion board options
  • Free online mbed compiler and libraries
  • 22 GPIOs with SPI, I2C, UART, and I2S interfaces
  • USB drag‑n-drop programming
