New Delhi, India, November 25, 2014: Telit Wireless Solutions, a leading global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and services, today debuted the Jupiter SL871-S, designed for easy migration between a full-GNSS solution for top-ranked applications and a simple GPS-only solution for less demanding applications. The Jupiter SL871-S is designed in to track and navigate GPS and QZSS constellations while ensuring pin-to-pin and protocol compatibility with its full constellation companion module SL871. The SL871-S is packaged in a 9.7 x 10.1 mm LCC package with an ARM7 baseband processor, embedded ROM memory, integrated LNA and delivers geo-location data using NMEA protocol through a standard UART port. SL871-S supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) for increased position accuracy. In addition, its extremely low power consumption in all conditions is perfectly suited to applications requiring long battery life. SL871-S has been designed to ensure HW and SW compatibility with SL871 allowing customer to design once and take advantage from the xL871 common form factor.
Key benefits include:
- Pin-to-pin compatibility with SL871 Family,
- Same protocol used in SL871,
- Straightforward migration between full-GNSS solutions and GPS-only solutions,
- Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) support, for increased position accuracy, and
- Assisted GPS.
The SL871-S can replace the SL871 – allowing customers to design once and interchangeably mount the appropriate solution depending on the required features. “The new SL871-S module designed to be easily swapped with other xL871 modules for enhanced simplicity and scalability,” said Taneli Tuurnala, CEO of Telit GNSS Solutions. “It is an ideal example of how buying a module from Telit enables our customers to avert the need to keep track of the latest chipset technology on their own. We keep them on top of the best available technology, pre-packaged in a module that is easy to replace as needed, without having to redesign their entire application to stay up to date.”
