Telit Introduces Jupiter SL869-V2S GPS Module

Ultra-low power, GPS-only SL869-V2S shares xL869 form factor for pin-to-pin compatibility with JN3, SL869 and SL869 V2.

London, UK – Telit Wireless Solutions, a leading global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and services, today debuted the Jupiter SL869-V2S, GPS Module, 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 SL869 V2S supports GPS as well as QZSS constellations and is ROM based. Geo-location data is delivered using NMEA protocol through a standard UART port. It supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) for increased 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 host flash memory.

Key benefits include:

§ Pin-to-pin compatibility with JN3/xL869 Family,

§ Same protocol used in SL869 V2,

§ Straightforward migration between full-GNSS solutions and GPS-only solutions,

§ Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) support, for increased position accuracy, and

§ Assisted GPS.

The SL869 V2S can replace the JN3, SL869 or SL869 V2 – allowing customers to design once and interchangeably mount the appropriate solution depending on the required features. The xL869 is Telit’s GNSS unified form factor family which allows customers to select among different GNSS technologies and feature sets. Modules in this family are offered in a 16 x 12.2 mm, 24-pad, LCC package.

“The new SL869 V2S module is designed to be easily swapped with other xL869 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.”
