MFF2 solder M2M SIM card to FPC adapter
In the M2M industry, the ETSI MFF2 (Machine Form Factor) SIM, is gaining momentum. As opposed to regular SIMs, this type of sim is not user-removable, but soldered into the GSM-enabled product.
This MFF2 SIM is sometimes also called VQFN8 SIM or SON-8 SIM.
When debugging or analyzing problems with such MFF2 SIM, they cannot be directly used with regular phones, test mobiles or SIM protocol tracers like our SIMtrace product.
However, using this adapter and our FPC SIM adapters, it is possible to use a ETSI MFF2 solder-type SIM with a mobile phone that has a plug-in sized (ID-000) SIM card slot.
Please note that this adapter is only the PCB adapter with a MFF2 footprint and the FPC connector. No FPC SIM cable is included, and no MFF2 SIM is included!
You will have to obtain the FPC SIM cables separately. If you already have a SIMtrace including the adapters, you can use them with this product.
Any ETSI MFF2 compliant solder-type SIM can be soldered onto this adapter and used in regular mobile phones.
