Compact Dual-band GNSS Module for L1 and L5 Bands

Quectel has launched a compact dual-band GNSS module that supports the L1 and L5 bands to improve positioning accuracy. The LC79D module, features concurrent multi-constellation GNSS receivers on dual GNSS bands. It 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 the L1 band only, the LC79D can generally increase the number of visible satellites, significantly improve positioning drifting when driving in rough urban canyons and enhance positioning accuracy.

Embedded with an LNA and multi-tone active interference, the module provides 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 customer products at reduced costs. Available in a compact package that measures only 10.1 x 9.7 x 2.4 mm, the LC79D fully meets requirements of size sensitive applications.

The LC79D module has a compact design, low power consumption, and high performance makes it ideal for vehicles, people and asset tracking as well as sharing economy applications.

The LC79D GNSS module was showcased at MWC Shanghai 2019.
