At this week’s Sensors Expo in San Jose, California, Telit announced the SE878Kx-A series of GPS and GNSS integrated antenna receiver modules for consumer and business applications that require high performance, reliability and low power consumption.
Compatible with GPS, Glonass, Beidou and Galileo, the SE878K3-A and SE878K7-A enable device vendors to develop quickly and cost-effectively location-based IoT services for use in virtually any country worldwide.
The series supports dual internal-external antennas to ensure connectivity when one is broken or compromised, along with a saw filter to increase jamming immunity. These features make the modules suitable for mission-critical applications and other use cases where reliability is key, such as alarms, stolen cars or high-end asset tracking.
The modules leverage the Italian company's 25-plus years of experience with satellite positioning. The SE878Kx-A series also provides seamless integration with Telit's cellular modules, including ecall and ERA-Glonass compliant products, making them suitable for telematics applications such as fleet management, road tolling and in-vehicle navigation systems.
"The new SE878Kx-A series is the latest example of Telit's leadership in providing GNSS solutions for applications that demand the highest reliability and performance," said Yossi Moscovitz, Telit president of products. "Just as important, the modules give IoT designers maximum flexibility, faster development cycles, easier integration and the ability to develop once and deploy worldwide."
