Telit Wireless Solutions Unveils Ultra-Compact GPS Miniature Receiver Module

By Shamila Janakiraman October 09, 2012

Telit Wireless Solutions, a supplier of machine-to-machine (M2M) modules and value-added services, has introduced the Jupiter SE880, an ultra-compact GPS receiver module.

According to company officials, the Jupiter SE880 features a fully functioning receiver design that needs to be augmented with a 32 KHz external crystal for its time-base and TCXO to complete the design. Other requirements include an antenna, power and data connections according to usage needs.

The GPS receiver module also serves as a single-constellation GPS product that features high levels of sensitivity, making it suitable for one-satellite acquisition of UTC - where typically there are four required. In addition, it can be used to fix acquisition with minimal sky-visibility. As a result, the offering is great for usage indoors, inside garages, in crowded urban locales with towering buildings, and more.

The SE880 can also work optimally in an extended operating temperature range where noise-versus-gain performance is linearly balanced throughout the range. The device displays very high sensitivity stability even at the extremes of -40 and +85°C temperatures - making it also suitable for applications such as sports watches and OEM automotive navigation systems.

Recently, Telit Wireless Solutions received AT&T certification for its full family of HE910 3G and 4G modules. These modules are now certified for use on the carrier’s HSPA and HSPA+ wireless network.
