MFF2 SIM Cards Specs. MIM QUAD

FullM2M Quad Overview

  • The FullM2M Quad is a Machine Identity Module (MIM) specifically designed for M2M applications. The FullM2M Quad MIM combines traditional smart card security with a more rugged form factor, it is designed to avoid usage of a SIM socket (direct soldering on device’s printed circuit board).

This MIM has a specific form factor (DFN-8, also called SON-8, and previously called VQFN-8 in some documents) defined as MFF2 in the ETSI M2M UICC standard (TS 102.671).

  • Packaging --> ETSI MFF2 (also know as DFN8/ SON8 /VQFN-8)
  • Operating Temperature --> -40ºC to +105ºc
  • Networks compliancy --> 2G/3G/4G
  • Supply Voltage --> ISO class A(5V), B(3V) & C (1.8V)
  • Communication protocol --> ISO
  • OS features --> Javacard ,eXtended-Life , eUICC

  eXtended-Life operating system is a Gemalto’s M2M specific operating system especially designed to maximize the lifespan 
  of the memory chip, making it more resistant to stress (*****/write cycles) and allowing to have a very high level of 
  reliability on the field.
  eUICC is a new feature being implemented in Gemalto products. eUICC transforms the traditional UICC into a Multiple 
  Independant Profile Areas UICC (MIPA concept) where different profiles from different MNOs can securely cohabit in the
  same chip and can remotely be administrated (download, activation, deletion).

  • Dimensions
    • Compliant with ETSI TS 1202.671 MFF2


  • Pin outline
  • Compliant with MFF2 ETSI specs (M2M UICC - TS102.671). Cx is the corresponding contact reference on SIM module as per ETSI TS 102.221.


A reference design can be found under the schematics of the concept board


It would help if there was a datasheet with soldering instructions and recommended profiles for the eSIM MFF2.

I second that

Can you specify if unconnected pins should be connected to the GND or left unconnected?

And providing a proper documentation is also a mandatory thing for an IC manufacturer! So, please, again, give us some specifications for your IC!

Hello, could you please specify the Moisture Sensivity Level for this IC ?

thanks a lot !


please provide standard electrical characteristics: I/O voltages and normal and quiescent currents. Please also provide absolute maximum ratings for I/O lines and supply voltage.

Thank you in advance


It will be great if there was a datasheet with package information and recommended profiles for the eSIM MFF2.

Hello , 

Can you please provide layout recommendation detail for eSIM ?
