Telit Wireless Solutions has announced a GPS module that promises 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.

The device, featuring assisted GPS, offers pin-to-pin compatibility with JN3/xL869 family and uses the same protocol used in SL869 V2. In addition, the device provides straightforward migration between full-GNSS solutions and GPS-only solutions.

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 that allows customers to select among different GNSS technologies and feature sets. Modules in this family are offered in a 16 x 12.2mm, 24-pad, LCC package.
