We have a custom board which used to contain EGS5. As it is now obsolete, We would like to replace it with BGS5. Can someone help us to understand whether BGS5 is preferable replacement of EGS5 in terms of power & current ?
Just a background We were using EGS5 2 UARTs for communicating and Antenna for transmitting data.

EHS5 module belongs to an old family. So there will be some differences. BGS5 has a different footprint and some electrical characteristics may be also different. Here you can find hardware interface description for BGS5 and some other modules: https://iot-developer.thalesgroup.com/documentation/download-documentati...
Both EGS5 and BGS5 have 2 serial interfaces and support Java. Please see the BGS5 referene desigh here: https://iot-developer.thalesgroup.com/documentation/example-schematic-eh...
