L30

Miniature GPS module

The L30 module provides the high GPS performance with an embedded SiRFstarIV™ chip solution. With 48 PRN channels, L30 can acquire and track satel-lites in the shortest time at a very low signal level. With an extremely compact profile of 9.0mm x 9.0mm x 1.6mm, it perfectly suits portable devices, vehicle tracking, personal tracking, asset tracking, connected PND, security devices and other industrial applications.

L30 supports aided-GPS function without the necessity of data download from server since it captures ephemeris data from satellites locally and predicts ephemeris within the next 3 days.
