Quectel Launched New 5G Sub-6GHz Smart Module SG520B

On December 13th, Quectel, a leading global IoT overall solution provider, announced the official launch of its new generation 5G Sub-6GHz smart module series, SG520B.


The Quectel SG520B  series supports various connectivity technologies including 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth, with powerful multimedia capabilities. It is poised to directly meet the growing market demands for edge computing, graphic processing, and multimedia capabilities in vertical industries such as smart gateways, smart industry, smart retail, and handheld PDAs.

In terms of network connectivity, the Quectel SG520B series emphasizes comprehensiveness, featuring the latest Android 13 operating system and comprehensive coverage of 5G NSA/SA modes, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth connectivity.


On one hand, the Quectel SG520B series complies with the 3GPP Release 16 standard, backward compatible with LTE Cat 15/3G networks to ensure the stability of terminal network environments. Additionally, to minimize errors and optimize data speed, the SG520B series also provides 5G and LTE multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, allowing the receiver to simultaneously use multiple antennas on the same frequency band to enhance data transmission efficiency and quality. Excellent cellular network connectivity fundamentally empowers the SG520B series to meet the strict requirements of the current market for high-speed wireless communication, low latency, and broad connectivity.

Furthermore, the Quectel SG520B series also supports 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi dual-band synchronization (DBS), and other connectivity methods, with a peak data rate of up to 3.6Gbps. It is equipped with Bluetooth 5.2 and an integrated GNSS receiver configuration including GPS/GLONASS/BDS/Galileo/NavIC/QZSS/SBAS, simultaneously meeting the requirements for fast and accurate positioning and multiple network connection methods in environmental applications.


In terms of multimedia functionality, the Quectel SG520B series supports single-screen and multi-camera setups, as well as 1080p@60 fps video encoding and decoding capabilities, making it an ideal choice for industrial and consumer applications with high multimedia requirements, such as smart gateways, CPE, Mi-Fi devices, POS terminals, cash registers, dashcams, digital signage, and industrial PDAs. Additionally, the series integrates a rich set of interfaces including LCM, camera, touchscreen, UART, USB, I2C, and I2S, greatly expanding its application range in the IoT field and leaving room for performance expansion in the later stages.



To adapt to the differentiated demands of various regional markets globally, the SG520B series will launch four sub-models, including SG520B-CN for the domestic market, SG520B-EM for Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Japan, SG520B-NA tailored for the North American region, and the Wi-Fi & Bluetooth version SG520B-WF.


In terms of package design, it adopts the classic LGA method, compatible with Quectel SG560D 5G smart module, and is expected to be stable in supply until 2030, making the SG520B series an outstanding all-around representative of Quectel 5G smart modules.
