RockBLOCK 9603 is the smaller version of our standard RockBLOCK product. It has the same capabilities, but is specifically designed to be as small and light as possible. The RockBLOCK 9603 is targeted primarily at systems integrators and product developers where space inside your enclosure is at a premium.
It has a small form factor Molex connector to link the serial, power, and signalling lines to your controller. This may be marginally harder to use for hobbyists than the 0.1″ dot pitch header used on the standard RockBLOCK product. At the heart of RockBLOCK 9603 is an Iridium 9603 modem.
The RockBLOCK hosts the 9603 and provides it with an antenna and its power supply requirements. It exposes the modem’s serial interface via a breakout connector over serial and also offers an SMA connector for external antenna usage.
