Arduino for Quectel BC66 LTE Narow Band modules

... and Quectel development platform for PlatformIO v 2.0.0 (must be full Arduino compatible)

A few words in the beginning

  • Version 2.0.0 ... beta, not everything tested...
  • This project not an official product of Quectel / Mediatek
  • The project is based on Quectel OpenCPU and reverse engineering

ATT: work only with firmwares BC66NBR01A04 or BC66NBR01A05

Chipset Mediatek MT2625 SoC Ultra-low power, 3GPP Release-14 enabled NB-IoT platform for wide-ranging home, civic, industrial or mobile applications https://www.mediatek.com/products/nbIot/mt2625

Module: Quectel BC66 is a high-performance, multi-band NB-IoT module... https://www.quectel.com/product/bc66.htm

  • Test Board for the project: BC66-TE-B ( it is shield Arduino, unfortunately... )
  • API: OpenCPU, native C, EAT (Embedded AT) oriented
  • User Application Size: ROM (BIN) 200k, RAM 100k
  • you need firmware BC66NBR01A04 or BC66NBR01A05

ATTENTION: Before start exeriments:

  • Update firmware version BC66NBR01A04 or BC66NBR01A05
  • Make Backup of NVDM Fields (module "eeprom")
  • IoT Flash Tool, [Backup] button, check-box "Backup", select file for backup (use IMEI as name), [Start] and keep the file
  • Now you can start all and you can restore the module if need
  • ATTENTION: if you upload application to module you lose standart AT command via uarts
  • Restore AT interface: send "AT+EPORT=1,connl,0", then remove application
  • SEE THIS
  • Other examples

Install
