Telit unveils Jupiter SL871 for multi-constellation tracking

Telit Wireless Solutions today announced the market introduction of Jupiter SL871, based on MediaTek’s low-power MT3333 core, enables multi-constellation tracking.

The SL871 is the ideal solution for battery-life sensitive GNSS applications that do not require Dead Reckoning, TRAIM and support of communication ports like USB or CAN bus. The recently introduced companion SL869 V2 module provides these sophisticated features.

The SL871 can track GPS + Galileo and GLONASS (or GPS + Galileo and Compass\Beidou depend­ing on the SW onboard) constellations, while simultaneously providing the positioning data through standard UART. It features an ultra-sensitive RF front-end that enables multi-GNSS indoor fix, fast fix and navigation in challenging outdoor scenarios such as dense urban areas.

The Jupiter SL871 also supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) to increase position accuracy. Its onboard software engine is able to locally predict ephemeris three days in advance starting from ephemeris data broadcast by GNSS satellites received by the module and stored in the internal Flash memory.

When designing position-aware, connected devices, developers can benefit significantly from the seamless integration between Telit’s cellular modules and the Jupiter SL871.

“MediaTek is extremely pleased to partner with Telit on its latest generation multi-GNSS Jupiter positioning solution,” said SR Tsai, general manager, MediaTek’s Wireless Connectivity and Networking business unit.

“MediaTek’s multi-constellation location technology has been widely proven globally. The MT3333 single-chip SoC enables industry leading levels of performance and integration, together with the lowest power consumption, and is ideal for deployment across multiple product segments,” added Tsai.

“The Jupiter SL871 was designed to help developers looking for a quick and painless design-in experience creating geo-location aware products, particularly battery-powered ones,” said Taneli Tuurnala, vice president and Head of GNSS Divisionat Telit Wireless Solutions.

“This exceptional and easy-to-use receiver module extends our partnership with MediaTek and will accelerate our global engagement with vertical application areas such as fleet management systems, GNSS-assisted road tolling, wearable technology, in-car navigation, telematics, personal monitors, to name a few,” added Tuurnala.
