We are glad to inform that Techtonics has introduced to the offer newGPS/Glonass module from GlobalTop: PA6E-CAM, based on MediaTek MT3333 chipset.Possibility of using both systems improves position accuracy and shortens coldstart time, especially in difficult satellite signal conditions.
Module is pin-to-pin and functionally compatible to older PA6E module based on MT3329 chipset. Thus it is possible simple migration to this module without changing of printed boards.
Module has a number of functions known from solution based on MT3339:
EASY, self-generated orbit prediction for instant positioning fix; GPS engine will use these information for positioning if no enough information from satellites
Always Locate intelligent algorithm that reduces power depending onspeed
Logger function that stores position data in internal flash memory(without use of external controller)
Passive GPS antenna is integrated. It?s possible to connect additional active antenna. Comparing to older PA6E, new module realizes 20% power saving.Weight and dimensions are the same.
