Ultra-Low Power GNSS Module for Asset Tracking Applications

Kolmostar, an innovative consumer IoT solutions provider, has introduced an ultra-low power, instant cold boot GNSS module, JEDI-200, along with an Evaluation Kit (EVK). The JEDI-200 has very low cold boot energy consumption and very short TTFF (time to first fix) making it ideal for battery-powered IoT applications that have stringent requirements on product size, weight, response time, battery life and GPS reporting frequency. 

With the latest developments in cellular and non-cellular Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies, such as NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRaWAN, and Sigfox, JEDI-200 is well-positioned to enable more rapid deployment of IoT asset tracking use cases for their customers worldwide.

Key Specifications of JEDI-200:
  • Industry lowest energy consumption of 25 mJ/position fix
  • Shortest cold-boot TTFF of 1 second
  • 5.0 meter CEP positioning accuracy
  • Supports GPS and BeiDou constellations
  • 50 Byte/12-hour compressed ephemeris (EPH) for speedy download, enabling A-GPS via LPWAN while significantly reducing EPH download power consumption overhead
  • High-performance cloud computing for minimum end device power consumption and seamless integration with customers' backend data analytics platforms and dashboard applications
  • Integrated SAW filter, stand-alone LNA and TCXO
  • 12mm x 16mm industry-proven standard form factor for easy wireless connectivity integration

Specially designed for IoT applications such as pet and personal object tracking, livestock tracking, fixed and nomadic logistics, infrastructure tracking, and shared economy, JEDI-200's reduced level of power consumption and optimized efficiency with LPWAN solve IoT endpoint deployment's pain-point of needing frequent recharges or a large battery. 

Worldwide customers have started developing systems based on JEDI-200 and field deployments are expected in the second half of 2020.
