BANGALORE, INDIA: Telit Wireless Solutions, an internationally leading specialist in machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, launched the SE868 and SL868 – two state-of-the-art 48-channel standalone A-GPS modules for Telit GSM/GPRS modules. They stand out through high sensitivity, extremely low power consumption and extended ephemeris injection for fastest TTFF (Time To First Fix).
The low profile and small size of the QFN (SE868) / LCC (SL868) package enables the design of ultra-compact applications, significantly reducing the solution cost and required space. The target markets are size-critical positioning applications, tracking and tracing solutions as well as wireless/GPS combo applications that require an extremely quick fix (< 2 seconds).
With a footprint of merely 11 x 11 mm, the SE868 is the smallest module in the Telit portfolio, due to QFN (quad-flat no-leads) packaging. This mounting technique is ideal for medium and high volume applications. The SL868 features LCC packaging and is therefore additionally suited for low volume applications that require manual soldering or reworking.
The SE868 and SL868 facilitate highly energy-efficient applications. In contrast to host-based GPS modules, the standalone modules work independently from a GSM module or application microprocessor. This means that they can run while the GSM/GPRS module or the application microprocessor is in power savings mode or powered off. Moreover, the availability of sophisticated low power modes enables the modules to keep and track position and dynamic parameters with less power consumption.
