Quectel introduces dual-band GNSS module LC79D to boost positioning accuracy

Quectel Wireless Solutions launched a compact dual-band GNSS module LC79D with support of L1 and L5 bands for satellites which will greatly improve positioning accuracy. 

Featuring concurrent multi-constellation GNSS receivers on dual GNSS bands, LC79D can work on L1 and L5 bands for GPS, Galileo and QZSS satellites, L1 band for GLONASS and BeiDou satellites as well as L5 band for IRNSS satellite. 

Compared with the GNSS modules working on L1 band only, LC79D can generally increase the number of visible satellites, significantly improve positioning drifting when driving in rough urban canyons and enhance positioning accuracy.  

Quectel Wireless is a supplier of GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA(+), LTE, LTE-A, LPWA and GNSS modules. As a professional IoT technology developer and cellular module supplier, Quectel is able to provide one-stop service for IoT cellular modules. Quectel products have been widely applied in IoT/M2M fields including smart payment, telematics and transport, smart energy, smart city, security, wireless gateway, industry, healthcare, agriculture and environment monitoring. 

Embedded with LNA and multi-tone active interference, the module owns higher sensitivity and reliable anti-jamming capability, ensuring exceptional acquisition and tracking performance even in weak signal areas. 

Multiple communication interfaces including UART and SPI simplify customer designs and accelerate time-to-market for customers’ products at reduced costs. 

With tiny dimension of 10.1mm×9.7mm×2.4mm, LC79D fully meets requirements of size sensitive applications. Compact design, low power consumption and high performance make it ideal for vehicle, people and asset tracking as well as sharing economy applications. 

“The launch of LC79D shows Quectel’s global leading position to provide positioning modules for applications requiring higher accuracy and reliability, especially in rough environments with weak signals,” said Wang Min, automotive and GNSS product director at Quectel. “LC79D gives customers high-level integration and flexibility to realize precise positioning in real time.”
