Telit announces GNSS Antenna Module Solutions

The Jupiter SE868-AS has same form factor as its companion module SE868-A. SE868-AS offers GPS-only coverage for cost savings for customers who do not require multi-constellation support while SE868-A is designed to fully support GPS, QZSS and GLONASS and it is Galileo ready. The two are interchangeable to support a choice of functionalities for a single customer design – saving both time and money in development and rollout across locations and over time.

This sophisticated solution provides customers with an integrated antenna for an optimized RF path, and standard SMT mounting without constraints in terms of the host PCB. Unlike competitive solutions, SE868-A and -AS do not require a hole on the host PCB.

The Jupiter SC872-A is a multi-constellation smart GNSS module packaged in a 21 x 22 mm double sided PCB with a GNSS antenna on one side and all the remaining components on the opposite side.

The SC872-A is provided with embedded Flash memory, integrated LNA, battery backup and connector. This packaging solution provides customers with a completely integrated and top performing solution. The 20 x 20 mm antenna ensures better performance over the whole bands used by the different GNSS constellations. The embedded battery backup ensures top level TTFF performance and a 24/7 availability of a reliable time base, while the embedded connector ensures easy and fast mounting or replacement.

In each case, 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 up to three days in advance, starting from ephemeris data broadcast by GNSS satellites, received by the module and stored in the internal Flash memory.
