1 Functional description
1.1 Overview
The TOBY-R2 series comprises LTE Cat 1 / 3G / 2G multi-mode modules in the small TOBY LGA form
factor (35.6 x 24.8 mm, 152-pin) that are easy to integrate in compact designs.
TOBY-R2 series modules support up to five LTE bands, up to four 3G UMTS/HSPA bands and up to
four 2G GSM/(E)GPRS bands for voice and/or data transmission.
TOBY-R2 series modules are form-factor compatible with u-blox SARA, LISA and LARA cellular
module families and are pin-to-pin compatible with u-blox TOBY-L cellular module families: this
facilitates easy migration from the u-blox GSM/GPRS, CDMA, UMTS/HSPA, and LTE high data rate
modules, maximizes the investments of customers, simplifies logistics, and enables very short
time-to-market.
The modules are ideal for applications that are transitioning to LTE from 2G and 3G, due to the long
term availability and scalability of LTE networks.
With a range of interface options and an integrated IP stack, the modules are designed to support a
wide range of data-centric applications. The unique combination of performance and flexibility make
these modules ideally suited for medium speed M2M applications, such as smart energy gateways,
remote access video cameras, digital signage, telehealth and telematics.
TOBY-R2 series modules support Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice service over 3G or 2G (CSFB) for
applications that require voice, such as security and surveillance systems.

Feature
Description
LTE / 3G Rx Diversity
Improved cellular link quality and reliability on all operating bands, by means of 2 receiving antenna
inputs.
GNSS via modem 7
Full access to u-blox positioning chips and modules is available through a dedicated DDC (I2C)
interface. This means that from any host processor a single serial port can control the cellular module
and the positioning chip or module. For more details, see the GNSS Implementation Application
Note [5].
Embedded AssistNow
Software 7
Embedded AssistNow Online and AssistNow Offline clients are available to provide better GNSS
performance and faster Time-to-First-Fix. An AT command can enable / disable the clients.
CellLocate® 7
Enables the estimation of device position based on the parameters of the mobile network cells visible
to the specific device based on the CellLocate® database:
Normal scan: only the parameters of the visible home network cells are sent
CellLocate® is available via a set of AT commands for CellLocate® service configuration and position
request.
Hybrid Positioning 7
The current module position is provided by a u-blox positioning chip or module or the estimated
position from CellLocate® depending on which method provides the best and fastest solution
according to the user configuration.
Hybrid positioning is available via a set of AT commands that allow the configuration and the position
request.
Wi-Fi via modem 8
Full access to Wi-Fi modules is available through a dedicated SDIO interface. This means that from
any host processor a single serial port can control the cellular module and the short range
communication module.
DTMF decoder
During a voice call, the Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency detector analyses the RX speech (coming from
remote party). The detected DTMF symbols can be output via the related URC.
The feature can be enabled and configured through the +UDTMFD AT command.
Smart Temperature
Supervisor
Constant monitoring of the module board temperature:
Warning notification when the temperature approaches an upper or lower predefined threshold
Shutdown notified and forced when the temperature value is outside the specified range (shutdown
suspended in case of an emergency call in progress)
The Smart Temperature Supervisor feature can be enabled and configured through the +USTS AT
command.
The sensor measures board temperature, which can differ from ambient temperature.
Power saving
The power saving configuration is by default disabled, but it can be enabled and configured using the
+UPSV AT command. When the power saving is enabled, the module automatically enters the low
power idle-mode whenever possible, reducing current consumption.
During idle-mode, the module processor core runs with the RTC 32 kHz reference clock, which is
generated by the internal 32 kHz oscillator.
Fast Dormancy
The Fast Dormancy feature, defined in 3GPP Rel.8, allows reduction of current consumption and
network utilization during periods of data inactivity. It can be activated and configured by +UFDAC and
+UDCONF=61 AT commands.
LTE cDRX
Both the Long DRX Cycle and the Short DRX cycle are supported for LTE Connected Discontinuous
Reception, allowing reduction of current consumption and LTE network utilization during periods of
data inactivity

2 Interfaces
2.1 Power management
2.1.1 Module supply input (VCC)
TOBY-R2 series modules must be supplied through the three VCC pins by a DC power supply. Voltage
must be stable, because during operation the current drawn from VCC can vary by some order of
magnitude, especially due to the surging consumption profile of the GSM system (described in the
TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2]). It is important that the system power supply circuit
is able to support peak power.
TOBY-R200 modules provide separate supply inputs over the three VCC pins:
VCC pins #71 and #72 represent the supply input for the internal RF power amplifier, demanding
most of the total current drawn by the module when RF transmission is enabled during a
voice/data call
VCC pin #70 represents the supply input for the internal baseband Power Management Unit and
the internal transceiver, demanding minor part of the total current drawn by the module when RF
transmission is enabled during a voice/data call
2.1.2 RTC supply input / output (V_BCKP)
When VCC voltage is within the valid operating range, the internal Power Management Unit (PMU)
supplies the Real Time Clock (RTC) and the same supply voltage is available on the V_BCKP pin. If the
VCC voltage is under the minimum operating limit (e.g. during not powered mode), the V_BCKP pin
can externally supply the RTC.
2.1.3 Generic digital interfaces supply output (V_INT)
TOBY-R2 series modules provide a 1.8 V supply rail output on the V_INT pin, which is internally
generated when the module is switched on. The same voltage domain is used internally to supply the
generic digital interfaces of the modules. The V_INT supply output can be used in place of an external
discrete regulator.
2.2 Antenna interfaces
2.2.1 Antenna RF interfaces
The modules have two RF pins with a characteristic impedance of 50 . The primary antenna pin
(ANT1) supports both Tx and Rx, providing the main antenna interface, while the secondary antenna
pin (ANT2) supports Rx only for the LTE / 3G Rx diversity configuration.
2.2.2 Antenna detection
The ANT_DET pin is an Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) input with a current source provided by
TOBY-R2 modules to sense the antenna presence (as an optional feature). It evaluates the resistance
from ANT1 and ANT2 pins to GND by means of an external antenna detection circuit implemented on
the application board. For more details, see the TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2] and
the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1].

2.3 System functions
2.3.1 Module power-on
TOBY-R2 series can be switched on in one of the following ways:
Rising edge on the VCC pins to a valid voltage for module supply, i.e. applying module supply: the
modules switch on if the VCC supply is applied, starting from a voltage value of less than 2.1 V,
with a rise time from 2.3 V to 2.8 V of less than 4 ms, reaching a proper nominal voltage value
within VCC operating range.
Alternately, in case for example the fast rise time on VCC rising edge cannot be guaranteed by the
application, TOBY-R2 series modules can be switched on from not-powered mode as following:
RESET_N input pin is held low by the external application during the VCC rising edge, so that the
modules will switch on when the external application releases the RESET_N input pin from the low
logic level after the VCC supply voltage stabilizes at its proper nominal value within the operating
range
PWR_ON input pin is held low by the external application during the VCC rising edge, so that the
modules will switch on when the external application releases the PWR_ON input pin from the low
logic level after the VCC supply voltage stabilizes at its proper nominal value within the operating
range
When the TOBY-R2 series modules are in the power-off mode (i.e. properly switched off as described
in section 2.3.2, with valid VCC module supply applied), they can be switched on as follows:
Low pulse on the PWR_ON pin, which is normally set high by an internal pull-up, for a valid time
period (see section 4.2.8). The PWR_ON line should be driven by open drain, open collector or
contact switch.
Rising edge on the RESET_N pin, i.e. releasing the pin from the low level, normally set high by an
internal pull-up. The RESET_N line should be driven by open drain, open collector or contact switch.
RTC alarm, i.e. pre-programmed scheduled time by AT+CALA command.
2.3.2 Module power-off
TOBY-R2 series can be properly switched off, saving current parameter settings in the module’s non-
volatile memory and performing a proper network detach, by:
AT+CPWROFF command (see the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1]).
Low pulse on the PWR_ON pin, which is normally set high by an internal pull-up, for a valid time
period (see section 4.2.8). The PWR_ON line should be driven by open drain, open collector or
contact switch.
An abrupt under-voltage shutdown occurs on TOBY-R2 series modules when the VCC supply is
removed. If this occurs, it is not possible to store the current parameter settings in the module’s non-
volatile memory and to perform the proper network detach.
An abrupt shutdown occurs on TOBY-R2 series modules when a low level is applied on the RESET_N
pin, which is normally set high by an internal pull-up. If this occurs, it is not possible to store the
current parameter settings in the module’s non-volatile memory and to perform the proper network
detach.
An over-temperature or an under-temperature shutdown occurs on TOBY-R2 modules when the
temperature measured within the cellular module reaches the dangerous area, if the optional Smart
Temperature Supervisor feature is enabled and configured by the dedicated AT command. For more
details, see the TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2] and the u-blox AT Commands
Manual [1], +USTS AT command.

2.3.3 Module reset
TOBY-R2 series modules can be reset (rebooted) by:
AT+CFUN command (see the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1]). This causes an “internal” or
“software” reset of the module. The current parameter settings are saved in the module’s non-
volatile memory and a proper network detach is performed.
An abrupt “external” or “hardware” reset occurs when a low level is applied to the RESET_N pin, which
is normally set high by an internal pull-up, for a valid time period (see the section 4.2.9). This causes
an “external” or “hardware” reset of the entire module, including the integrated power management
unit, except for the RTC internal block: the V_INT generic digital interfaces supply is switched off and
all the digital pins are tri-stated, but the V_BCKP supply and the RTC block are enabled. The current
parameter settings are not saved in the module’s non-volatile memory and a proper network detach
is not performed. The RESET_N line should be driven by open drain, open collector or contact switch.
2.3.4 Module / host configuration selection
Selection of module / host configuration over HOST_SELECT0 and HOST_SELECT1 pins is not
supported.
TOBY-R2 series modules include two pins (HOST_SELECT0, HOST_SELECT1) for the selection of the
module / host application processor configuration.
2.4 SIM
2.4.1 SIM interface
A SIM card interface is provided on the VSIM, SIM_IO, SIM_CLK, SIM_RST pins: the high-speed
SIM/ME interface is implemented as well as the automatic detection of the required SIM supporting
voltage.
Both 1.8 V and 3 V SIM types are supported (1.8 V and 3 V ME). Activation and deactivation with
automatic voltage switch from 1.8 V to 3 V is implemented, according to ISO-IEC 7816-3 specifications.
The SIM driver supports the PPS procedure for baud-rate selection, according to the values proposed
by the SIM card/chip.
2.4.2 SIM detection
TOBY-R2 series modules provide the SIM detection function over the GPIO5 pin to sense the SIM card
physical presence (as an optional feature) when the pin of the module is properly connected to the
mechanical switch of the SIM car holder (for more details, see the TOBY-R2 series System Integration
Manual [2]).
2.5 Serial communication
TOBY-R2 series provides the following serial communication interfaces:
UART interface: Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter serial interface available for the
communication with a host processor (AT commands, data communication, FW update by means
of FOAT), for FW update by means of the u-blox EasyFlash tool and for diagnostic.
USB interface: Universal Serial Bus 2.0 compliant interface available for the communication with
a host application processor (AT commands, data communication, FW update by means of the
FOAT feature), for FW update by means of the u-blox EasyFlash tool and for diagnostic.
DDC interface: I2C bus compatible interface available for the communication with u-blox GNSS
positioning chips/modules and with external I2C devices as an audio codec.
SDIO interface: Secure Digital Input Output interface available for the communication with
compatible u-blox short range radio communication Wi-Fi modules.

TOBY-R2 series - Data Sheet
UBX-16005785 - R13 Interfaces Page 13 of 46
2.5.1 UART interface
TOBY-R2 series modules include a 9-wire unbalanced Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter
serial interface (UART) for communication with an application host processor (AT commands, data
communication, FW update by means of the FOAT feature), for FW update by means of the u-blox
EasyFlash tool and for diagnostic.
UART features are:
Complete serial port with RS-232 functionality conforming to the ITU-T V.24
Recommendation [14], with CMOS compatible signal levels (0 V for low data bit or ON state and 1.8
V for high data bit or OFF state)
Data lines (RXD as output, TXD as input), hardware flow control lines (CTS as output, RTS as
input), modem status and control lines (DTR as input, DSR as output, DCD as output, RI as output)
are provided
Hardware flow control (default value), software flow control, or none flow control are supported
Power saving indication available on the hardware flow control output (CTS line): the line is driven
to the OFF state when the module is not prepared to accept data by the UART interface
Power saving control over the RTS input or the DTR input can be enabled via AT+UPSV command
(for more details, see the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1] and TOBY-R2 series System Integration
Manual [2])
The following baud rates are supported: 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200 (default baud rate
when autobauding is disabled), 230400, 460800, 921600, 3000000, 3250000, 6000000 and
6500000 bit/s
One-shot autobauding is supported and it is by default enabled: automatic baud rate detection is
performed only once, at module start up. After the detection, the module works at the fixed baud
rate (the detected one) and the baud rate can only be changed via AT command (see u-blox AT
Commands Manual [1], +IPR).
The following frame format are supported: 8N2, 8N1 (default format when automatic frame
recognition is disabled), 8E1, 8O1, 7E1 and 7O1
One-shot automatic frame recognition is supported and it is by default enabled in conjunction with
automatic baud rate detection (autobauding): the detection is performed only once, at module
start up. After the detection, the module works at the detected frame format and it can only be
changed via AT command (see u-blox AT Commands Manual [1], +ICF).
UART serial interface can be conveniently configured through AT commands: see the u-blox AT
Commands Manual [1] (+IPR, +ICF, +IFC, &K, \Q, +UPSV AT commands) and TOBY-R2 series System
Integration Manual [2].
2.5.1.1 Multiplexer protocol
TOBY-R2 series modules include multiplexer functionality as per 3GPP TS 27.010 [10] on the UART
physical link.
This is a data link protocol which uses HDLC-like framing and operates between the module (DCE) and
the application processor (DTE), allowing a number of simultaneous sessions over the physical link
(UART): the user can concurrently use AT interface on one MUX channel and data communication on
another MUX channel.
The following virtual channels are available (for details, see the Mux Application Note [6]):
Channel 0: Multiplexer control
Channel 1 5: AT commands / data connection
Channel 6: GNSS data tunneling
The GNSS data tunneling channel is not supported by TOBY-R200-02B-00 and
TOBY-R202-02B-00.

2.5.3 DDC (I2C) interface
Communication with u-blox GNSS receivers over DDC (I2C) is not supported by
TOBY-R200-02B-00 and TOBY-R202-02B-00 type numbers.
TOBY-R2 series modules include an I2C-bus compatible DDC interface (SDA, SCL) available to
communicate with a u-blox GNSS receiver and with external I2C devices as an audio codec: the
TOBY-R2 module acts as an I2C master which can communicate with I2C slaves in accordance with
the I2C bus specifications [16].
For more details regarding the DDC (I2C) interface usage and the integration with a u-blox GNSS
receiver, see the TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2], the GNSS Implementation
Application Note [5], and the I2C and GNSS AT commands description in the u-blox AT Commands
Manual [1].
2.5.4 SDIO interface
The SDIO interface is not supported by “02” modules product versions.
TOBY-R2 series modules include a 4-bit Secure Digital Input Output interface (SDIO_D0, SDIO_D1,
SDIO_D2, SDIO_D3, SDIO_CLK, SDIO_CMD) designed to communicate with external compatible
u-blox short range radio communication Wi-Fi modules.
2.6 Audio
TOBY-R2 series modules support Voice over LTE (VoLTE) as well as Circuit-Switched Fall-Back (CSFB)
from LTE to 3G or 2G radio bearer for providing audio services.
TOBY-R2 series modules include a 4-wire I2S digital audio interface (I2S_TXD, I2S_RXD, I2S_CLK,
I2S_WA) that can be configured by AT command in PCM mode (short synchronization signal) or in
normal I2S mode (long synchronization signal) to transfer digital audio data to/from an external device
as an audio codec.
For more details regarding internal audio processing system capabilities, I2S digital audio interface
possible configurations, usage and guideline for the integration with an external digital audio device
as an audio codec, see the TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2] and the audio sections in
the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1].
2.7 Clock output
TOBY-R2 series modules provide a master digital clock output function on the GPIO6 pin, which can
be configured to provide a 13 MHz or 26 MHz square wave. This is mainly designed to feed the master
clock input of an external audio codec, as the clock output can be configured in “Audio dependent”
mode (generating the square wave only when the audio path is active), or in “Continuous” mode.
For more details, see the u-blox AT Commands Manual [1], +UMCLK AT command.

7.2 Moisture Sensitivity Levels
TOBY-R2 series modules are Moisture Sensitive Devices (MSD) in accordance to the IPC/JEDEC
specification.
The Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) relates to the packaging and handling precautions required.
TOBY-R2 series modules are rated at MSL level 4. For more information regarding moisture sensitivity
levels, labeling, storage and drying, see the u-blox Package Information Guide [7].
For MSL standard, see IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020 (can be downloaded from www.jedec.org).
7.3 Reflow soldering
Reflow profiles are to be selected according to u-blox recommendations (see TOBY-R2 series System
Integration Manual [2]).
Failure to observe these recommendations can result in severe damage to the device!
7.4 ESD precautions
TOBY-R2 series modules contain highly sensitive electronic circuitry and are Electrostatic
Sensitive Devices (ESD). Handling TOBY-R2 series modules without proper ESD protection may
destroy or damage them permanently.
TOBY-R2 series modules are Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESD) and require special ESD
precautions typically applied to ESD sensitive components.
Table 7 reports the maximum ESD ratings of the TOBY-R2 series modules.
Proper ESD handling and packaging procedures must be applied throughout the processing, handling
and operation of any application that incorporates TOBY-R2 series module.
ESD precautions should be implemented on the application board where the module is mounted, as
described in the TOBY-R2 series System Integration Manual [2].
Failure to observe these recommendations can result in severe damage to the device!
