UK, November 11, 2014: Telit Wireless Solutions has launched Jupiter SL871-S module which is designed for easy migration between a full-GNSS solution and a GPS-only solution. The new module is designed to track and navigate GPS and QZSS constellations while ensuring pin-to-pin and protocol compatibility with its full-constellation companion module, the SL871.
The module comes in a 9.7 x 10.1 millimetre LCC package with an ARM7 baseband processor, embedded ROM memory, and integrated LNA. It delivers geolocation data using NMEA protocol through a standard UART port. It supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) for increased position accuracy.
The SL871-S has been designed to ensure hardware and software compatibility with its predecessor SL871.
