GPS/GNSS OEM boards are optimised for power consumption
Septentrio has expanded its GNSS portfolio with the addition of the AsteRx-m. The receivers are claimed to have the lowest power consumption on the market, allowing longer operation times. They are designed to be easily integrated for short set-up times and faster time-to-market, adds Septentrio.
The AsteRx-m3 devices represent the next generation of technology in the GNSS OEM market, says Septentrio, delivering centimetre-level accuracy, availability and reliability in a credit card-sized board.
The family has three types of GNSS OEM boards. The AsteRx-m3 Pro calculates its position by analysing signals from multiple GNSS satellites and information from base station receivers. This rover receiver tracks signals from all available GNSS constellations on three frequencies and operates in both single and dual antenna modes.
The AsteRx-m3 ProBase is designed to operate as a reference station for RTK and PPP-RTK networks. It can be used as a base station or for network densification.
The AsteRx-m3 Pro+ is claimed to be best-in-class – the full-feature OEM receiver board is flexible enough to fit into any application and to be used either as a rover or a base station in a single or a dual antenna mode.
Septentrio designs and manufactures multi-frequency multi-constellation GPS/GNSS positioning technology for demanding applications. Reliable centimetre-level positioning enables machine automation improving efficiency and safety.
Septentrio provides positioning solutions for industrial applications such as robotics, construction, survey and mapping, maritime, logistics and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The company’s headquarters are in Leuven, Belgium and it has offices in Los Angeles, Shanghai, Seoul and Yokohama as well as partners around the world.
