SkyTraq Introduces L5 NavIC + L1 GPS/GAGAN Receiver Module Print E-mail
Written by SkyTraq   
Wednesday, 31 January 2018

Hsinchu, Taiwan, Feb 1, 2018 SkyTraq Technology Inc., a leading fabless GNSS positioning technology company, introduces S1216F8-GI2, a NavIC + GPS/GAGAN receiver module for the emerging Indian market. It integrates L1/L5 RF front-end and baseband processor capable of receiving up to 14 L5 NavIC signals and up to 20 L1 GPS/GAGAN signals simultaneously. With currently usable 6 NavIC signals and 3 GAGAN signals, it offers a total of 18 ~ 23 usable signals for navigation compared to 9 ~ 14 usable signals with conventional GPS receivers, providing much improved accuracy in urban canyon environments with signals often blocked by high buildings.

The S1216F8-GI2 has form-factor and pinout compatible with popular 12mm x 16mm GPS receiver modules. With S1216F8-GI2, customers currently using the GPS modules can effortlessly migrate to NavIC/GPS capability by drop-in replacement and changing to L1/L5 antenna. For emerging Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications requiring NavIC/GPS capability in India, S1216F8-GI2 enables fast time-to-market for the product manufacturers.

NavIC sub-frame data output is a useful feature of S1216F8-GI2. It can output NavIC broadcast warning message related to weather alerts, forecast, and natural disasters such as cyclone, earth quack, and tsunami. A recent application example is that, in a pilot trial, ISRO is to give hundreds of NavIC Messaging Receiver to Tamil Nadu and Kerala fishermen for them to know position and receive alerts during deep sea fishing.

S1216F8-GI2 engineering sample, evaluation kit, and datasheet will be available in late February. Volume delivery to customers begins in late March 2018. S1216F8-GI2 is manufactured in factory with ISO/TS 16949 automotive certification.
