USA: According to a recent news, Telit Wireless Solutions has introduced Jupiter SE868-V2 compact multi-constellation receiver module for positioning and navigation applications in the automotive, commercial, industrial, and consumer segments including wearable and handheld devices. The small11x11mm CSR SiRFstarV™ 5e-based, QFN packaged receiver module supports American GPS, Russian Glonass and Japanese QZSS.
As per the source, Telit’s Jupiter SE868-V2 excels in all positioning tasks and foremost in applications requiring high reliability navigation. Because of its ability to track GPS and Glonass constellations simultaneously it remains in navigation for a much higher percentage of time with no interruptions in the stream of position fixes. It also requires no external management for switching among the different satellite systems.
As in news, the SE868-V2 also features very low power consumption as well as advanced power saving modes. It operates on a 1.8V supply at 3.2 mA current when in push-to-fix (PTF)mode and up to 45 mA typical current when engaged in simultaneous GPS and Glonass tracking. For devices upgrading from the JF2 GPS-only receiver, the new receiver is capable of delivering all its enhanced functionality while consuming power levels equivalent to the JF2. That allows JF2 customers to adopt the SE868-V2 without having to upgrade the device’s power supply which is particularly critical in battery powered products.
Dominikus Hierl, Chief Marketing Officer at Telit Wireless Solutions, said: “The Jupiter SE868-V2is one the industry’s first applications of CSR’s latest generation and state-of-the-art, multi-GNSS platform, theCSR SiRFstarV™ 5e. Announcing this product here at CTIA 2013 reaffirms Telit’s leading R&D power in the industry when we can launch a product like the V2 before most competitors sharing similar long-standing presence in the positioning space. Now the large customer base for the popular Jupiter JF2 GPS-only module can quickly introduce a new generation of their own products providing them the opportunity to upsell their own customer base.”
As in news, other distinguishing features of the SE868-V2 include multipath mitigation, cross-correlation mitigation and 8-10dB of 3GPP pass margins. Besides support to BeiDou Compass (BDS) and Galileo,the product roadmap also includes leading edge features like MEMS context detection and navigation aiding Wi-Fi hybrid-positioning;and Cell-ID tracking,data-logging Adaptive Continuous Track (ACT).
