Miniature GPS module Quectel L30 will provide data immediately after switching on


GPS module Quectel L30 Using SIRFstarIVTM chip offers an outstanding sensitivity, quick time to first fix thanks to a self-assisted GPS and a high resistance against in band jammers. You can use it also in miniature portable applications thanks to extremely small dimensions and a small consumption.

With dimensions of only 9x9x1.8mm it can be used in applications, where every piece of space is precious. It offers all functions which can be expected from a modern GPS module: tracking sensitivity -160dBm and -163dBm using external LNA, 48 channels, 80dB-Hz removing of in band jammers, UART/ SPI/ I2C interface. To a short time to first fix contributes also a possibility of self-assisted GPS by CGEE (Client Generated Extended Ephemeris), which can store data to an external EEPROM helping to a quick fix – within 10 sec. L30 supports this assisted-GPS function without the necessity of data download from server since it captures ephemeris data from satellites locally and predicts ephemeris out to 3 days.

Function PTF (Push To Fix) enables almost immediate hot start - within 1 sec in applications which require infrequent position reporting, but on demand are data available almost immediately, at average consumption 50-500 uA. In this PTF mode, module wakes up regularly in a predefined interval (10-7200sec) to update a position and then stays back in a hibernation mode. To significantly reduce power consumption, at strong signal conditions you can use ATP mode (Advanced Trickle Power). At this mode, module cycles three states internally - switches on main parts of module only for a short time necessary to update position and in the rest of a cycle the module is in a hibernation mode. This cycle is configurable to 1-10 sec.

For development support, Quectel offers a development kit L30EVB with a baseboard, documentation and PC software.

Voltcraft sets of measuring leads provide several reasons why to choose right them
Maybe we even don´t realize in a common praxis, how important role is played by measuring leads of a measuring device, the most often multimeter. Firstly, they´re “responsible” for a good transfer of a signal to a measuring device and at the same time they perform an important safety function, especially at measuring of higher voltages or on devices, where such a voltage can appear (unexpectedly).
