Digi-Key Electronics partners with Septentrio for GNSS positioning

Components distributor, Digi-Key Electronics, has announced a partnership with Septentrio, the specialist in high-precision GNSS positioning solutions. As a result, Digi-Key now offers Septentrio’s mosiac-X5, a high-end GNSS receiver module delivering cm-level positioning. The mosaic-X5 is available worldwide to customers and can be used for secure and reliable high-accuracy positioning in a compact and low-power form factor, says the distributor.

Septentrio’s mosaic-X5 features complete multi-frequency multi-constellation technology and tracks every existing and future signal from all Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellations. Such signal diversity coupled with advanced anti-jamming technology allows mosaic-X5 to deliver reliable positioning with maximum availability even in challenging industrial environments. It is therefore suitable for use in robotics, automation and telematics.

“With its small form factor and low-power design, mosaic-X5 brings high-performance positioning to volume applications,” said Francois Freulon, head of product management for Septentrio. “Having Digi-Key as a distributor enables us to scale and reach out to find new markets and applications where secure high accuracy positioning is required.”

“Digi-Key is excited about the new partnership with Septentrio,” said David Stein, vice president of global supplier management for Digi-Key. “Demand for high-accuracy GNSS receivers with secure and robust positioning is growing strongly . . . Digi-Key offers customers an easy path to order, develop, and deploy with the latest technologies available, including Septentrio’s robust and precise GNSS devices, which have the latest anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technology.”

Septentrio designs and manufactures multi-frequency multi-constellation GPS/GNSS positioning technology for demanding applications. The company provides positioning solutions for industrial applications such as robotics, construction, survey and mapping, maritime, logistics and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Septentrio has its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium and has offices in Los Angeles, Shanghai, Seoul and Yokohama as well as partners around the world.
