Raspberry Pi 3G/4G & LTE Base HAT

The Sixfab 3G/4G& LTE Base HAT grants your Raspberry Pi or 40-pin Pi compatible single-board-computer a super-simple interface bridge between mini PCIe cellular modems. With the modems you insert into Base HAT, your Raspberry Pi based projects will access data networks all around the world. This Base HAT enables narrow-bandwidth to high-bandwidth cellular connectivity on your remote devices i.e from low-power consumption LTE-M to ultra-high-speed LTE-Advanced mini PCIe modules are supported. Both UART and USB communication with modules is available on the HAT.

Features

  • Fully compatible with Raspberry Pi models that have the 40-pin GPIO header (4, 3, 2, A+). Raspberry Pi Zero may lack performance.
  • Easy-to-use, simple setup.
  • Clip-in Mini PCIe socket is compatible with worldwide LTE, UMTS/HSPA+ and GSM/GPRS/EDGE coverage with regional or global modules which work with different frequencies & carriers.
  • Micro SIM Card socket can easily reachable on the upside of the HAT.
  • It can be used standalone with PC/Laptop over micro USB, without stacking with Raspberry Pi.
  • The HAT can be powered from an external 5V source by exposed power pins, directly from Raspberry Pi 5V GPIO headers, via micro USB, or optional JST connector on the bottom of the board.
  • Efficient and low quiescent current power circuits can hold up to 3Amps.
  • Optional Send/Receive AT commands over Raspberry Pi UART or USB port is available
  • Taking the module into the Airplane mode, resetting module functions can be accessible over GPIO pins.
  • The power of the whole board electronics can be disabled for low-power consumption use cases.
  • The modules have built-in GNSS(GPS/GLONASS) receivers for your location-based applications.
  • Micro USB is used to connect the modem, it transmits data through the cable to the Raspberry Pi.
  • Working temperature range: -40°C ~ 80°C.

Sixfab SIM Card

 

 

 

Sixfab SIM is a cellular connectivity solution for connecting your IoT devices with the best global networks.You can activate and use your SIM card in a few minutes, without any contract or commitment.

 

 

 

 

Antennas

The Kit comes with the following antennas

That has two antenna and u.FL plug at the same time in a single form. One of them is GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Glonass), the other one is full band LTE. It’s a kind of flex PCB (FPC) and can be folded for tight spaces. Also has adhesive tape on the back for fixing it on boxes/enclosures. 

 

LTE Full Band PCB Antenna – u.FL Plug – 100mm

This 100mm long cable flex PCB (FPC) antenna has great antenna gain while using in 3G/4G-LTE applications. It’s slim and can be attached to a surface by its own 3M adhesive tape.

 

Right Angle Micro USB Cable – USB 2.0 A-Male to Micro B

This is a double side right angle Micro USB cable. Perfect for connecting Sixfab Shields to Raspberry Pi USB ports. 8cm length approximately, 0.75 cm more or less.

 

 

Hey, before you leave
Here is a product that you can use with the modem kit that we handpicked for you
This product is designed to solve the problem of power supply, a persistent challenge for the majority of IoT projects.

    Hello,

    Is there a SIM card that is inserted in order to obtain service? Also, is there GPS capabilities? Thanks.

    • ensar

      The package does not include a SIM card. Check out Sixfab SIM. This Sixfab SIM provides a global network for high-quality coverage.
      Yes, it has GPS capabilities.

    Amazing kit! Assembled in no time (check raspberrypi official tutorial how to setup your rpi board. I have used model 3, but the tutorial is same for model 4: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/raspberry-pi-setting-up), run all commands as described in documentation here: https://docs.sixfab.com/docs/raspberry-pi-3g-4g-lte-base-shield-getting-started using QMI interface. And voila – it works!!! My school dream came true – IOT with NO Borders!!!
    I am getting LTE 30/30 Down/Up speed – AMAZING!
    Thank you Sixfab for amazing product and clear instructions! Definitely will look for another cool stuff from you!
    Best,
    Slava

    Great kit. Simple to assemble but SixFab does not provide the standoffs or screws. It’s the little things that make the difference. I highly recommend their Raspberry Pi 4 hats.

    This is a good little kit and works very well. Two things to note:
    1. Use the short, supplied USB cable that comes with the kit. I tried a longer, heavier duty cable and the kernel complained with USB issues. Also, connectivity became intermittent. I tried this with various USB cables (all good quality) and it came down to length.
    2. If using Verizon with the LE910C1-NF, be sure to issue an AT+FWSWITCH=2 to enable the Verizon configuration (it is set up for AT&T by default). You just need to do this once as it is stored in the modem.
    All in all, a nice kit and I like that it doesn’t interfere with other boards on the RPi stack.
