RUTRONIK EMBEDDED: New GNSS Module Jupiter SL869 V2 from Telit
The Jupiter SL869 V2 is able to discover and track multiple constellations at the same time. It also delivers a high-sensitivity RF front-end, enhancing reliability and functionality of geo-location aware consumer, commercial and industrial devices. Being able to replace the JN3 or SL869, the SL869 V2 allows customers to design once and interchangeably mount the JN3, SL869 or SL869 V2 depending on required features. It supports GPS, QZSS and Glonass and is ready for Galileo and Compass/Beidou.
Two versions of product deliver simultaneously tracking of different combinations of constellations: either GPS + Galileo and Glonass or GPS 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 broadcast by GNSS satellites, received by the module and stored in the internal Flash memory. The SL869 V2 comes in a 16 x 12.2 x 2.4 mm LCC package and has a supply voltage range of 3 – 3.6 VDC.
