Telit Wireless Solutions—Multi-Constellation Tracking Enabled (GNSS—SoC)

[SatNews] Telit Wireless Solutions has introduced their Jupiter SL871—the new module, which is based on MediaTek’s low-power MT3333 core, enables multi-constellation tracking.

The SL871 is the ideal solution for battery-life sensitive GNSS applications that do not require Dead Reckoning, TRAIM and support of communication ports like USB or CAN bus.  The recently introduced companion SL869 V2 module provides these sophisticated features. The SL871 can track GPS + Galileo and GLONASS (or GPS + Galileo and Compass\Beidou depend­ing on the SW onboard) constellations, while simultaneously pro­viding the positioning data through standard UART. It features an ultra-sensitive RF front-end that enables multi-GNSS indoor fix, fast fix and navigation in challenging outdoor scenarios such as dense urban areas.
The Jupiter SL871 also 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. In addition, advanced power modes and A-GPS help in finding the best balance between accu­racy and power consumption, significantly increasing the battery life.
When designing position-aware, connected devices, developers can benefit significantly from the seamless integration between Telit’s cellular modules and the Jupiter SL871. Bundling these 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-to-use emergency automotive tracking solutions for the European and Russian markets.
