BPI-R3 Mini with RM520N-GL AP

Hello, Will the RM520N-GL module in the AP version (RM520NGLAP) work properly with bpi-r3 mini? Do I need the AA version? Thank you for your tips.

Both can be used, but the frequency bands are slightly different.

Which one does your local carrier support?

AA—5G NR sub6Hz Bands: n1/n2/n3/n5/n7/n8/n12/n13/n18/n20/n25/n26/n28/n29/n30/n38/n40/n41/n48/n66/n71/n75/n76/n77/n78/n79/n91/n92/n93/n94

LTE Band: LTE-FDD: B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B9/B12/B13/B14/B17/B18/B19/B20/B25/B26/B28/B29/B30/B32/B66/B71; LTE-TDD: B34/B38/39/B40/B41/B42/B43/B48; LAA: B46 WCDMA Bands: B1/B2/B4/B5/B8/B3/B6/B19


Bands are not a problem. The problem may be the interface - the AP version only supports PCIe interface only. AA has a PCIe/USB interface. If I understand the r3 mini documentation correctly, I need the AA version. Can you confirm or deny this?

Really? I don’t have an AP version , but I asked the supplier and they said it’s just a difference in bands.

R3mini does not support PCIe interface modules, so you may need to change to the AA version.
