Telit unwraps first po­si­tion­ing mod­ule

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

Telit Wire­less So­lu­tions, a global provider of ma­chine-to-ma­chine (M2M) so­lu­tions, prod­ucts and ser­vices, re­cently an­nounced the mar­ket in­tro­duc­tion of Jupiter SL869 V2, the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of one of its top per­form­ing po­si­tion­ing prod­ucts. The new mod­ule is based on the low-power MT3333 from Me­di­aTek. The com­plete multi-GNSS re­ceiver fea­tures easy in­te­gra­tion and su­pe­rior bat­tery-life per­for­mance, able to dis­cover and si­mul­ta­ne­ously track mul­ti­ple con­stel­la­tions. It also de­liv­ers a high-sen­si­tiv­ity RF front-end, en­hanc­ing re­li­a­bil­ity and func­tion­al­ity of geo-lo­ca­tion aware con­sumer, com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial de­vices. The Jupiter SL869 V2 supports GPS, QZSS and Glonass and is ready for Galileo and Com­pass/Beidou. Two vari­ants of prod­uct de­liver si­mul­ta­ne­ously track­ing of dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions of con­stel­la­tions: ei­ther GPS + Galileo and Glonass; or GPS + Galileo and Com­pass/Beidou. Geo-lo­ca­tion data is de­liv­ered us­ing NMEA pro­to­col through a stan­dard UART port. It supports ephe­meris file in­jec­tion (A-GPS) as well as Satel­lite Based Aug­men­ta­tion Sys­tem (SBAS) to in­crease po­si­tion ac­cu­racy. Its on­board soft­ware en­gine is able to lo­cally pre­dict ephe­meris three days in ad­vance start­ing from ephe­meris data broad­cast by GNSS satel­lites, re­ceived by the mod­ule and stored in the in­ter­nal Flash mem­ory.

The SL869 V2 can re­place the JN3 or SL869 in de­vice de­signs with the ob­ser­vance of a few sim­ple ap­pli­ca­tion rules. That al­lows cus­tomers to de­sign once and in­ter­change­ably mount the JN3, SL869 or SL869 V2 de­pend­ing on re­quired fea­tures. The xL869 is Telit’s GNSS uni­fied form fac­tor fam­ily which al­lows cus­tomers to se­lect among dif­fer­ent GNSS tech­nolo­gies and fea­ture sets. Mod­ules in this fam­ily are of­fered in a 16 x 12.2 mm, 24-pad, LCC pack­age.

When de­sign­ing po­si­tion-aware, con­nected de­vices, de­vel­op­ers can also ben­e­fit sig­nif­i­cantly from the seam­less in­te­gra­tion be­tween Telit cel­lu­lar mod­ules and the Jupiter SL869 V2. Bundling of all-Telit cel­lu­lar and po­si­tion­ing mod­ules sig­nif­i­cantly re­duces de­vel­op­ment com­plex­ity with­out adding costs. Multi-GNSS mod­ules ap­plied to­gether with the com­pany’s eCall / ERA- GLONASS com­pli­ant cel­lu­lar mod­ules can, for ex­am­ple, de­liver ready-touse emer­gency au­to­mo­tive track­ing so­lu­tions for the Euro­pean and Rus­sian mar­kets.

“Me­di­aTek is ex­tremely pleased to part­ner with Telit on its lat­est gen­er­a­tion multi-GNSS Jupiter po­si­tion­ing so­lu­tion,” said S.R. Tsai, Gen­eral Man­ager of Me­di­aTek’s Wire­less Con­nec­tiv­ity and Net­work­ing busi­ness unit. “Me­di­aTek’s multi-con­stel­la­tion lo­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy has been widely proven glob­ally. The MT3333 sin­gle-chip SoC en­ables in­dus­try lead­ing lev­els of per­for­mance and in­te­gra­tion, to­gether with the low­est power con­sump­tion, and is ideal for de­ploy­ment across mul­ti­ple prod­uct seg­ments,” the spokesper­son added.
