Telit Wireless Solutions launches satellite positioning receiver
Feb 26, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Telit Wireless Solutions, a provider of machine-to-machine solution, products and services, has announced the introduction of GE910-GNSS, a 2G-cellular, multi-constellation satellite positioning receiver module.
The product which incorporates an ARM11 processing core capable of running customer applications internally without the need for additional electronics, can deliver a functional tracking solution from the stamp-sized xE910 form factor, the company said.
The GE910-GNSS is comprised of two independent functional blocks: the quad-band GSM/GPRS GE910-QUAD engine and the multi-constellation GNSS receiver capable of independent or simultaneous GPS and GLONASS. The GE910-GNSS can function as a tracking solution even in built up or noisy environments or in cellular-only or GNSS-only modes.
The product can be ordered with an m2mAIR SIM chip mounted inside the module allowing it to be instantly connected to the cellular network and the broad range of remote module management services from Telit's m2mAIR, the company added.
The GSM/GPRS engine in the GE910-GNSS is voice capable with both analog and digital (DVI) interfaces. It delivers GPRS class 10, 3GPP Release 4 compliant data communications and is equipped with a USB 2.0 full speed interface. The GNSS receiver supports NMEA and RTCM standards over GPS (L1), Glonass (L1, FDMA), and Galileo (E1) frequency bands. It leverages a 32-channel GPS architecture for a CEP50 Position accuracy of 1.5m (5 ft) and a time to first fix from cold start of less than 35 seconds.
The embedded Python script language interpreter allows the ARM11 processing core in the cellular engine to run customer applications which can among other things, access the GNSS core directly, the company concluded.
"The launch of the GE910-GNSS rounds out the xE910 product family with the combined functionalities of the GE910-QUAD 2G cellular engine and a full-function multi-constellation GNSS receiver into the popular xE910 form factor," said Dominikus Hierl, chief marketing officer at Telit Wireless Solutions.
"Take this rich functionality and add the convenience and robustness of an embedded m2mAIR SIM chip and the customer application does not even require a SIM cardholder and the electronics which go with it."
