I/O Type
Signal Name/Description
The Serial interface signals are TTL-level signals.
~RTSTTL
IB
~RXDTTL
OB
~TXDTTL
IA
Request To Send (TTL Active Low). ~RTS is used to condition the local
modem for data transmission and, during half-duplex operation, to control
the direction of data transmission.
On a full-duplex channel, RTS OFF maintains the modem in a non-transmit
mode. A non-transmit mode does not imply that all GSM signals have been
removed from the link. RTS OFF may be ignored if the modem is optioned to
strap ~CTS ON; this allows the modem to receive from the DTE even though
RTS is OFF.
RTS input ON causes the modem to transmit data on TXD when ~CTS
becomes active.
Received Data (TTL Active Low). The modem uses the ~RXD line to send
data received from the telephone line to the DTE and to send modem
responses to the DTE. Modem responses take priority over incoming data
when the two signals are in competition for ~RXD.
Transmitted Data (TTL Active Low). The DTE uses the ~TXD line to send
data to the modem for transmission over the telephone line or to transmit
commands to the modem. The DTE should hold this circuit in the mark state
when no data is being transmitted or during intervals between characters.
~CTSTTL
OB
Clear To Send (TTL Active Low). ~CTS is controlled by the modem to
indicate whether or not the modem is ready to transmit data. ~CTS ON,
together with the ~RTS ON, ~DSR ON, and ~DTR ON (where implemented),
indicates to the DTE that signals presented on TXD will be transmitted.
~CTS OFF indicates to the DTE that it should not transfer data across the
interface on TXD. ~CTS ON is a response to ~DTR ON and ~RTS, delayed
as may be appropriate for the modem to establish a connection.
~RITTL
OB
Ring Indicate (TTL Active Low). ~RI output ON (low) indicates the
presence of an incoming call.
~DSRTTL
OB
Data Set Ready (TTL Active Low). ~DSR indicates modem status to the
DTE. ~DSR OFF (high) indicates that the DTE is to disregard all signals
appearing on the interchange circuits except Ring Indicator (~RI).
~DCDTTL
OB
Data Carrier Detect (TTL Active Low). When AT&C0 command is not in
effect, ~DCD output is ON when a link is established or OFF when no link is
established.
IA
Data Terminal Ready (TTL Active Low). The ~DTR input is turned ON
(low) by the DTE when the DTE is ready to transmit or receive data. ~DTR
ON prepares the modem to be connected and maintains the connection
established by the DTE (manual answering) or internally (automatic
answering). ~DTR OFF places the modem in the disconnect state under
control of the &Dn command. The effect of ~DTR ON and ~DTR OFF
depends on the &Dn command.

3.4.3 Antenna Installation
• A minimum separation distance of 20 cm needs to be maintained between the
antenna and all persons.
• The transmitter effective radiated power must be less than 3.0 Watts ERP (4.9
Watts or 36.9 dBm EIRP). This requires that the combination of antenna gain and
feed line loss does not exceed 16 dBi.
3.4.4 User Operation
Do not operate your unit when a person is within 8 inches (20 centimeters) of the
antenna. A person or object within 8 inches (20 centimeters) of the antenna could
impair call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than
necessary.
IMPORTANT: The unit must be installed in a manner that provides a minimum
separation distance of 20 cm or more between the antenna and persons to satisfy
FCC RF exposure requirements for mobile transmitting devices.
IMPORTANT: To comply with the FCC RF exposure limits and satisfy the categorical
exclusion requirements for mobile transmitters, the following requirements must be
met:

External SIM Card Interface (-ES Option)
4 signals exist:
• SIMVCC: SIM power supply.
• SIMRST: reset.
• SIMCLK: clock.
• SIMDATA : I/O port.
The SIM interface controls a 3V SIM. This interface is fully compliant with GSM 11.11
recommendations concerning SIM functions. It is recommended to add Transient
Voltage Suppressor diodes on the signal connected to the SIM socket in order to
prevent any Electrostatic Discharge. TVS diodes with low capacitance (less than
10pF) have to be connected on SIMCLK and SIMDATA to avoid any disturbance of
the rising and falling edge. These types of diodes are mandatory for the Full Type
Approval. They shall be placed as close as possible to the SIM socket.

Audio - Interface
3.8.1 Speaker-Circuit
Audio output is useful for monitoring the modem's call-progress tones and modem
system debugging, as well as for fullfeatured Voice applications. You can directly
connect a speaker of 32 to 150 Ohms to pins 63 and 64. The connection is singleended, with analog-ground at pin 63. Use good shielding of the audio-connections as
to avoid disturbing performance by entering RF.
The gain of the SPK output is internally adjusted and can be tuned using an AT
command. The possible range of output-levels is 4mV to 210mV rms (max. Levels).
Recommended characteristics for the speaker:
• Type: 10mW, electro-magnetic
• Impedance: 32 to 150 Ohms / 1nF (32Ohm for headsets, 150Ohms other
applications)
• Sensitivity (SPL): 100dB min
• Frequency response compatible with the GSM specifications

3.8.2 Microphone circuit
The AL7020S has an analog input, referenced to the microphone ground (pin 63).
The AL7020S contains an analog amplifier with a default gain of 22dB, which can be
adjusted in seven steps between 0 and 31dB using the AT+MMICG command. For
more details about this command, refer to the AT Commands document (AT_7020A).
When the default gain of 22dB is used, then the level considerations should be as
follows:
Pin 62 is the headset microphone input. The input for this line can come directly from
a headset microphone. The maximum input to the AL7020S headset microphone
before there is signal distortion in the network is 12 mvRMS.
The Microphone ist connected single-ended to pin 62, with analog ground at pin 63.
At pin 62 there is also a phantom feeding-voltage of 2.2 Volts.
Recommended characteristics for the microphone:
•
•
•
•
•
2V – 0.5mA
KOhms
Sensitivity -40 to –50dB
SNR > 50dB
Frequency response compatible with the GSM specifications
3.8.3 Audio Circuit Design Considerations
In order to design an audio circuit that produces clear audio, without being affected by
the GSM transmission, the following guidelines should be considered when designing
the circuit:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The audio input to the AL7020S should be referenced to the MIC GND line of the
Module.
The microphone bias of the AL7020S for the microphone is 2.2 V. If a microphone
with a different voltage is used, the bias should be as clean as possible, and
referenced to MIC GND. Because most GSM buzz (217Hz TDMA noise) is
generated from the microphone path, if a different bias is created, it should be
filtered to supply DC only.
The MIC GND and GND are connected inside the module and should not be
connected to the application board.
Keep the lines of the microphone inputs as short as possible. To filter the lines
from RF emission, 39pF capacitors can be used.
The Module GND should be connected on all pins.
If possible, the RF cable ground from the AL7020S should be connected to the
GND of the Module.
The digital lines of the application should never be referenced to the MIC
GND(63).

Reset Signal (ON/OFF Signal)
After power is applied to the AL7020S module, the power-on process is initiated,
which lasts about five seconds, after which the module is ready to communicate. After
power-on, the on/off signal is pulled high to the VCC by a 200kΩ resistor. The module
remains active until power is turned off or the power-off process is initiated by
activating the Reset (ON/OFF) signal. The AT interface answers "OK" to the
application, when the reset is complete.
After the AL7020S is turned on, the line should be pulled low for a minimum of 2
seconds to turn it off. The unit can be turned off only if at least 10 seconds have
elapsed since turning it on. To turn the AL7020S on again, the on/off signal should be
pulled low for a minimum of 800 ms.
Figure 3.8 shows the timing diagram for the on/off signal.

In Figure 3.8, the following timing requirements apply:
• T1 minimum = 800 ms.
• T2 minimum = 10 seconds.
• T3 minimum = 2 seconds.

It is possible to reset the module by software, which activates an internal reset
generator (see AT Commands Reference Manual).

DESIGN GUIDELINES
Good engineering practices must be adhered to when designing a printed circuit
board (PCB) containing the GSM Socket Modem module. Suppression of noise is
essential to the proper operation and performance of the modem itself and for
surrounding equipment.
Two aspects of noise in an OEM board design containing the GSM Socket Modem
module must be considered: on-board/off-board generated noise that can affect
analog signal levels and analog-to-digital conversion (ADC)/digital-to-analog
conversion (DAC), and on-board generated noise that can radiate off-board. Both onboard and off-board generated noise that is coupled on-board can affect interfacing
signal levels and quality, especially in low level analog signals. Of particular concern
is noise in frequency ranges affecting modem performance.
On-board generated electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise that can be radiated or
conducted off-board is a separate, but equally important, concern. This noise can
affect the operation of surrounding equipment. Most local governing agencies have
stringent certification requirements that must be met for use in specific environments.
Proper PC board layout (component placement, signal routing, trace thickness and
geometry, etc.), component selection (composition, value, and tolerance), interface
connections, and shielding are required for the board design to achieve desired
modem performance and to attain EMI certification.
5.1
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Considerations
The EMC tests have to be performed as soon as possible on the application to
detect any possible problem. When designing, special attention should be paid to:
• Possible spurious emission radiated by the application to the RF receiver in the
receiver band.
• Metallic case or plastic casing with conductive paint are recommended
The following guidelines are offered to specifically help minimize EMI generation.
Some of these guidelines are the same as, or similar to, the general guidelines but
are mentioned again to reinforce their importance. In order to minimize the
contribution of the Socket Modem-based design to EMI, the designer must
understand the major sources of EMI and how to reduce them to acceptable levels.
1. Keep traces carrying high frequency signals as short as possible.
2. Provide a good ground plane or grid. In some cases, a multilayer board may be
required with full layers for ground and power distribution.
3. Decouple power from ground with decoupling capacitors as close to the Socket
Modem module power pins as possible.
4. Eliminate ground loops, which are unexpected current return paths to the power
source and ground.
5. Locate high frequency circuits in a separate area to minimize capacitive coupling
to other circuits. Distribute high frequency signals continuously on a single trace
rather than several traces radiating from one point.
Doc. No. DG_7020B
Altec Electronic AG
Seite 25 / 32
AL7020S Designer’s Guide
6. Locate cables and connectors so as to avoid coupling from high frequency circuits.
7. If a mulilayer board design is used, make no cuts in the ground or power planes
and be sure the ground plane covers all traces.
8. Minimize the number of through-hole connections on traces carrying high
frequency signals.
9. Avoid right angle turns on high frequency traces. Forty-five degree corners are
good, however, radius turns are better
5.1.1 Grounding
Pins 26 and 41 are for grounding. Connect all of them to the same ground-layer or a
big ground-area on your board. The ground-area should completely cover the area
below and around the module and the regulator. Make the connections as wide as
possible. For better RF-perfomance, connect the metal-housing to ground, very near
the ground-pins of the module.
5.1.2 Power Supply 5V (5V Models)
A power supply with 5.0V DC +/- 5% (5V models) and a minimum power of 1.5A is
strictly required to supply this module. The supply-regulator should be placed as close
to the module as possible (about 5cm or nearer). The 5V-trace between regulator and
module should be at least 2.5mm wide or better an entire layer.
Important:
The module draws up to 1.3A max. for 577µs every 4,6ms at GSM transmit level
PCL5 (2W). Therefore a regulator with fast transient response and good load
regulation is strongly recommended.

5.1.3 Power Supply 3.3V (3V Models)
A power supply with 3.3V +/- 5% (3V models) and a minimum power of 1A is strictly
required to supply this module. The supply-regulator should be placed as close to the
module as possible (about 5cm or nearer). To keep a short and low impedance
connection between the regulator and the module is very important when supplying
the module with 3.3V. The 3.3V-trace between regulator and module should be at
least 2.5mm wide or better an entire layer.
Important:
The module draws up to 0.8A max. for 577µs every 4,6ms at GSM transmit level
PCL5 (2W). Therefore a regulator with fast transient response and good load
regulation is strongly recommended.

5.1.5 RF Antenna
Antenna sub-system and integration in the application is a major issue.
Attention should be paid to :
• Choice of the antenna cable (type, length, performance, thermal resistance, etc)
• Antenna connector (type + losses). These elements could affect GSM
performances such as sensitivity and emitted power
• The antenna should be isolated as much as possible from the digital circuitry
(including the interface signals)
• It is strongly recommended to shield the terminal.
• On terminals including the antenna, a poor shielding could dramatically affect the
sensitivity of the terminal. Moreover, the power emitted through the antenna could
affect the application.
Warning:
Altec Electronic strongly recommends to work with an antenna manufacturer either
to develop an antenna adapted to the application or to adapt an existing
solution to the application. The antenna adaptation (mechanical and electrical
adaptation) is one of the key issues in the design of a GSM terminal.
The antenna-cable and the antenna should be as far as possible away from other
circuitry, specially switching-regulators, analog- and uC digital circuits. It is
recommended to place the antenna-jack near a metal enclosure and go through this
one with the antenna-cable.
5.2
Manufacturing Considerations
The Socket Modem has been designed to be mounted onto the host board in one of
two ways.
The first method consists of soldering two 32-pin strip sockets to the host board and
inserting the Socket Modem into the sockets. A suggested part number for the 32-pin
socket is Sam Tec SMM-132-01-F-S.
The second way is to solder the Socket Modem directly to the host board. The most
efficient way to do this is through a wave solder process. The recommended hole size
for the Socket Modem pins is 0.036 in. ±0.003 in. in diameter. Spacers can be used to
hold the Socket Modem vertically in place during the wave solder process. A spacer
should be placed on pin 32 and pin 64 of the Socket Modem. A suggested part
number for the spacer is BIVAR 938-0.130 for P1(0.310in) option Socket Modems.
The spacers can be left on permanently and will not effect operation.
Socket Modems can be put through a water wash process.

REGULATORY APPROVALS
The GSM Socket Modem is approved as a host-independent modem module. To
maintain type approvals, permits and/or licenses valid, the guidelines described in this
document must be followed.
7.1
Considerations for Regulatory Approvals
The AL7020S Socket Modem has been assessed and has been found to comply with
the following regulatory approvals:
-
FCC
DOC
PTCRB
R&TTE
EMC
GCF
7.1.1 Regulatory Requirements
The Federal Communications Commission (FEC) requires application for certification
of digital devices in accordance with CFR Title 47, Part 2 and Part 15. This includes
Electromagnetic Energy Exposure (EME) testing. As the AL7020S modem is not a
standalone transceiver but is an integrated module, the AL7020S cannot be tested by
itself for EME certification. It is, however, the integrator’s responsibility to have the
completed device tested for EME certification.
7.1.2 Regulatory Statement
The following safety precautions must be observed during all phases of the operation,
usage, service or repair of any cellular terminal or mobile incorporating the AL7020S
module. Manufacturers of the cellular terminal are advised to convey the following
safety information to users and operating personnel, and to incorporate these
guidelines into all manuals supplied with the product.
Failure to comply with these precautions violates safety standards of design,
manufacture and intended use of the product. Altec assumes no liability for customer
failure to comply with these precautions.
1. The AL7020S must be operated at the voltages described in the technical
documentation.
2. The AL7020S must not be mechanically nor electrically changed. Use of
connectors should follow the guidance of the technical documentation.
3. The AL7020S is designed the meet the EMC requirements of ETS 300 342.
4. When integrating the AL7020S into a system, Altec recommends testing the
system to ETS300342-1.
4. The AL7020S meets the safety requirements of EN60950.
5. Systems using the AL7020S are subject to mandatory EMC testing under directive
89/336/EEC (see item 3 above). Other directives, such as the LVD directive
73/23/EE, may also apply to a system using the AL7020S module.

7.2
Safety Precautions
Your GSM terminal is based on the GSM standard for cellular technology. The
GSM standard is spread all over the world. It covers Europe, Asia and some parts
of America and Africa. This is the most used telecommunication standard.
Your GSM terminal is actually a low power radio transmitter and receiver. It
sends out and receives radio frequency energy. When you use your GSM
application, the cellular system which handles your calls controls both the radio
frequency and the power level of your cellular modem.
7.2.1 User Operation
Do not operate your unit when a person is within 8 inches (20 centimeters) of the
antenna. A person or object within 8 inches (20 centimeters) of the antenna could
impair call quality and may cause the phone to operate at a higher power level than
necessary.
IMPORTANT: The unit must be installed in a manner that provides a minimum
separation distance of 20 cm or more between the antenna and persons to satisfy
FCC RF exposure requirements for mobile transmitting devices.
IMPORTANT: To comply with the FCC RF exposure limits and satisfy the categorical
exclusion requirements for mobile transmitters, the following requirements must be
met:
7.2.2 Antenna Installation
A minimum separation distance of 20 cm needs to be maintained between the
antenna and all persons.
The transmitter effective radiated power must be less than 3.0 Watts ERP (4.9 Watts
or 36.9 dBm EIRP). This requires that the combination of antenna gain and feed line
loss does not exceed 16 dBi.
7.2.3 Antenna care and replacement
Do not use the GSM terminal with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna
comes into contact with the skin, a minor burn may result. Replace a damaged
antenna immediately. Consult your manual to see if you may change the antenna
yourself. If so, use only a manufacturer-approved antenna. Otherwise, have your
antenna repaired by a qualified technician. Use only the supplied or approved
antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications or attachments could damage the
terminal and may contravene local RF emission regulations or invalidate type
approval.
7.2.4 Electronic devices
Most electronic equipment, for example in hospitals and motor vehicles is
shielded from RF energy. However RF energy may affect some improperly
shielded electronic equipment.
