THE new GE863-GPS from Telit, available from Glyn , is the smallest combined GPRS/GPS module on the market.
It combines Telit’s proven QUAD band GSM/GPRS core technology with the lastest SiRFstar III 20 channel high sensitivity Single Chip GPS receiver.
The unique Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) package enables a very low profile and small product size to design extremely compact applications using location technology.
Since all connectors are eliminated, the solution cost is significantly reduced compared to conventional mounting concepts.
With its ultra low profile design and extended temperature range, the Telit GE863-GPS is the perfect module for all compact, high volume telematics devices, fleet management, tracking and security solutions.
Additional features like jamming detection, integrated TCP/IP protocol stack, Easy Scan functionality, Embedded FTP and SMTP Client and direct support of an embedded camera offer extended functionality to the application at no additional cost.
A compatible lower cost version package without GPS (GE863-QUAD) gives the user the option to design one product targeting only GPRS or combined GPRS/GPS requirements.
As part of Telit’s corporate policy of environmental protection, all new Telit products comply with the RoHS directive.
Evaluation Kits for product evaluation and development are readily available.
