Quectel Wireless Solutions announced that it has launched a compact dual-band GNSS module LC79D with support of L1 and L5 bands for satellites which will greatly improve positioning accuracy.
LC79D has been showcased at MWC Shanghai 2019 during June 26-28.
Featuring concurrent multi-constellation GNSS receivers on dual GNSS bands, LC79D can work on L1 and L5 bands for GPS, Galileo and QZSS satellites, L1 band for GLONASS and BeiDou satellites as well as L5 band for IRNSS satellite. Compared with the GNSS modules working on L1 band only, LC79D can generally increase the number of visible satellites, significantly improve positioning drifting when driving in rough urban canyons and enhance positioning accuracy.
Embedded with LNA and multi-tone active interference, the module owns higher sensitivity and reliable anti-jamming capability, ensuring exceptional acquisition and tracking performance even in weak signal areas. Multiple communication interfaces including UART and SPI simplify customer designs and accelerate time-to-market for customers’ products at reduced costs. With tiny dimension of 10.1mm×9.7mm×2.4mm, LC79D fully meets requirements of size sensitive applications. Compact design, low power consumption and high performance make it ideal for vehicle, people and asset tracking as well as sharing economy applications.
Wang Min, automotive and GNSS product director at Quectel, said:
“The launch of LC79D shows Quectel’s global leading position to provide positioning modules for applications requiring higher accuracy and reliability, especially in rough environments with weak signals. LC79D gives customers high-level integration and flexibility to realize precise positioning in real time.”
