Quectel launches high-performance single-band GNSS positioning module LC76G with ultra-low energy consumption.
Quectel Wi-fi Options, a worldwide IoT options supplier, introduced the discharge of its LC76G module, a single-band compact GNSS module that includes quick and correct location efficiency in addition to ultra-low energy consumption. The LC76G has already entered mass manufacturing with ample provide to fulfill the wants of the worldwide positioning market.
Primarily based on the Airoha AG3352 platform, the LC76G can concurrently obtain and course of alerts from all constellations (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS), which together with the help of SBAS enormously will increase the variety of seen satellites and enhances positioning accuracy. The LC76G module can obtain alerts from as much as 47 satellites and obtain 1.5m (CEP50 open-sky) positioning accuracy representing a 40% enchancment over earlier generations of gadgets.
Accessible in a cost-optimized model in addition to a low-power model, the LC76G low-power model consumes lower than 9mA @3V with all 4 constellations enabled permitting for a 72% discount in energy required than beforehand attainable.
This makes the LC76G extraordinarily enticing for battery-operated gadgets equivalent to wearable private trackers, wildlife and livestock monitoring, toll tags, moveable container trackers in addition to a bunch of conventional markets equivalent to shared mobility and low-cost asset trackers.
That includes an inside SAW filter and built-in LNA, the LC76G could be linked on to a passive patch antenna and offers filtering in opposition to undesirable interference making certain wonderful efficiency even whereas driving by dense city canyons.
Built-in AGNSS expertise EPO™, is supported on the LC76G module and reduces the time to first repair (TTFF) with a scorching begin taking lower than 1 second, a heat begin inside 2 seconds, whereas the chilly begin can receive correct monitoring fixes inside 15 seconds. The quicker GNSS fixes make it attainable to make use of correct positioning and navigation providers anytime and wherever with a smaller energy price range than beforehand attainable.
Whereas EPO requires handbook obtain of predicted orbits, the LC76G additionally helps EASY™ (Embedded Help System) the place predicted orbit info is collected straight from the satellites and offers for as much as 3 days of accelerated fixes.
Each EPO and Straightforward™ can be found for every constellation permitting for quicker TTFF and lowered dependency on any specific constellation.
That includes an LCC kind issue and an ultra-compact measurement of 10.1mm × 9.7mm ×2.4mm, the footprint of the LC76G is appropriate with different trade options in addition to Quectel’s legacy L76 and L76-LB modules, permitting for a easy migration of current designs to the newest low energy GNSS expertise.
As well as, Quectel presents a variety of off-the-shelf and customised high-performance antennas which enhance wi-fi connectivity considerably. Quectel’s LC76G could be mixed with a choice of GNSS L1 antennas to allow varied positioning necessities. Personalized connector kind and cable size in addition to complete antenna design and take a look at help are additionally obtainable to facilitate buyer product improvement.
