Hi Team,

          Before, we place order, it would be great to get following queries answered to get ahead with order-placement.
  1. As per data sheet EC25-E module from this series is supported for Indian market. Can you please confirm above mentioned item is EC25-E module?
  2. In recent past, we have ordered following dev kit board

Hello Vaman,

Welcome to the DigiKey Tech forum community.

Yes, according to the data sheet the EC25-E is suitable for EMEA region which includes India.

Also according to the Quectel website, the UMTS-LTEEVB-KIT is compatible with EC25 series modules. You can view that information in the link below:

Hi vkulkarni,

If you are asking if the EC25AFA-512-STD is the EC25-E module, no it is not. The EC25EFA-512-STD (notice the “E” following the “EC25” in the part number) is the EC25-E variant. The EC25AFA-512-STD is a North American variant.

Regarding compatibility with that development board, I believe both the EC25AFA-512-STD and the EC25EFA-512-STD appear to be just the bare module, which must be soldered to a base board rather than coming already soldered down to adapter board and ready to plug into that development board. It is not clear to me whether carry versions compatible with that board.

We will inquire with our product manager and let you know about this. I would recommend you hold off on ordering until we find out for sure.
