4G LTE click — carrying the LARA-R2 module from u-blox
Posted by Lana Vulic on 26 April 2017 03:54 PM
As you may have noticed all the u-blox modules we have on our click boards™ have rather lovely girl names – like NINA on the BLE3 click, and LEA for the GPS click, SARA for the 3G SARA click. This time the module is the LARA-R2, and the click that carries it is 4G LTE click. You must admit that it’s really nice sounding group.
4G LTE click
Both click boards™ carry a cellular module from u-blox, the LARA-R2 series of LTE Cat 1. The module offers an integrated IP stack, and data rates of up to 10.3 Mb/s for download.
For more information about the 4G LTE click board see the product page.
Other click boards™ with u-blox modules
There are five more click boards™ with u-blox modules for you to check out, so click here to see them all. GSM, GPS, GNSS or Bluetooth Low Energy, everything is covered.
GPS click carries the LEA-6S high-performance position engine. With low power consumption and the ability to track 16 satellites at once. It’s the perfect combination with 4G-LTE click, if you are building an application for asset tracking.
Let us know how you would combine these click bords to achieve the best combination.

Our new design partner, u-blox, is a Swiss-based company dedicated to making the best possible wireless semiconductors and modules.
BLE 3 click carries the NINA-B1 Bluetooth 4.2 low energy module. The real time counter on the module can be used to generate precisely timed BLE advertising events – broadcasting events to every device around.
GPS click carries the LEA-6S, a high-performance u-blox 6 positioning engine. The module has been designed for low power consumption.
3G SARA click carries the smallest UMTS/HSPA cellular modem in the world — u-blox U201. Adding 3G to your device has never been so easy and simple. The click is able to send and receive data at speeds up to 7.2 Mb/s. You can download a free PC app, provided by u-blox, for sending and receiving messages and calls from your computer.
SARA-U2 modules received the “Product of the Year” award in 2014, from M2M Evolution magazine.
GSM 4 click the u-blox SARA-G3 series 2.5G GSM/GPRS cellular quad-band module. The module has a miniature LGA (Land Grid Array) form factor, and RF transceiver and a power amplifier.
All u-blox cellular modules are of top-level quality; they offer GSM/GPRS, CDMA, UMTS/HSPA, NB-IoT, LTE and RPMA. For applications requiring positioning data, u‑blox provides easily integrated GNSS modules and chipsets.
