Telit unwraps positioning module based on MediaTek’s multi-GNSS receiver SoC technology

Parsec and Telit produce world’s lowest profile companion solution for GPS receiver and antenna

London, UK – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of M2M solutions, products and services, has introduced the 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.  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. This 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-to-use 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 SR 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 Jupiter SL869 V2 was designed to help developers looking for a quick and painless design-in experience creating geo-location aware products, particularly battery-powered ones,” said Taneli Tuurnala, Vice President, Head of GNSS Division at Telit Wireless Solutions. “This exceptional and easy-to-use receiver module marks the start of our partnership with MediaTek and will accelerate our global engagement with vertical application areas such as fleet management systems, GNSS-assisted road tolling, wearable technology, in-car navigation, telematics, personal monitors, to name a few.”
