Small GNSS module with integrated LNA

L26 is a single receiver module integrated with GLONASS and GPS system. It provides simultaneous GPS and Compass GLONASS open service L1 reception capability. With 33 tracking channels, 99 acquisition channels and 210 PRN channels, L26 can acquire and track any mix of GPS and GLONASS signals.

Compared with using GPS only, enabling both GPS and GLONASS generally doubles the number of visible satellites, reduces the time to first fix and increases positioning accuracy, especially when driving in rough urban environments.

Combining advanced AGPS called EASY™ (Embedded Assist System) with proven AlwaysLocate™ technology, L26 achieves the highest performance and fully meets the industrial standard. Additional feature of embedded logger function called LOCUS allows L26 to log position information to internal flash memory at default intervals of 15 seconds and provide typically more than 16 hours log capacity without adding cost.

L26 supports built-in short circuit protection for active antenna and an active antenna supervisor for short and open circuit detection.

Its super performance makes L26 ideal for automotive, industrial PDA, consumer and industry applications. Extremely low power consumption of L26 also makes it easier to be applied to power sensitive devices, especially portable applications.
