Quectel Wireless Solutions, a supplier of cellular and GNSS modules, recently announced that its product LC79D has entered into mass production and is now available for purchase. The LC79D is anL1/L5 high precision GNSS module that, according to the company, offers a cost and performance level vastly superior to L1 GNSS solutions on the market today.
Based on Broadcom’s BCM47755,the solution offers simultaneous support for L1 and L5 bands for GPS, Galileo and QZSS satellites, L1 band for GLONASS and BeiDou satellites as well as L5 band for IRNSS. The multi-GNSS support, along with integrated LNA and SAW, allows the LC79D to reach accuracies near 1m and has vastly superior performance in deep urban canyons. The combination of industry leading performance, stand alone operation, low power and cost makes it an ideal solution for anyone requiring a higher performing GNSS solution.
“The LC79D offers vastly superior performance and cost than other solutions on the market today,” stated Mark Murray, Vice President Sales, GNSS at Quectel. “Near 1m accuracy, along with low power and cost, makes it a perfect solution for the IoT, tracking, precision agriculture, drone and anyone requiring high precision. In Host Mode, the LC79D can also support dead reckoning focused at the eBike, robotics and autonomous vehicle markets.”
The LC79D comes in a compact 10.1mm x 9.7mm package. Samples and Development kits are available now.
