Quectel Wireless Solutions, the global leading supplier of cellular modules and GNSS positioning modules, is showcasing a range of new products covering cutting-edge technologies such as C-V2X, 5G, AI, LPWA and LTE Advanced at the ongoing electronica 2018 in Munich, Germany during November 13-16.
One of Quectel’s future-oriented products is the C-V2X AG15 module which debuts in Europe at this show. Featuring Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset solution, AG15 is now sampling to the automotive industry for the development of commercial C-V2X products.
The module is manufactured in accordance to IATF 16949:2016 quality management system standard for the automotive sector, and it fully complies with the automotive product quality processes, including APQP and PPAP. Pairing with the Quectel automotive grade LTE module AG35, Quectel’s AG15 is designed to meet the telematics and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) connectivity requirements of the next-generation automotive applications, such as autonomous driving and road safety.
In recent years, Quectel has been increasing investment in automotive module, and has developed partnership with some famous automakers and major Tier 1 suppliers. On November 14, Quectel has been nominated for an automotive project by a well-known global auto supplier, which will adopt Quectel’s LTE automotive grade AG35 in the Network Access Device.
AG35 is targeted at the IoV (Internet of Vehicles) applications. Adopting the 3GPP Rel. 10 LTE technology, it features maximally 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink data rates. It provides abundant interfaces for customers to develop applications, and its excellent performance in ESD and EMI protection ensures great robustness in harsh environments.
Besides automotive modules based on cellular technologies, Quectel also launched a compact GNSS module L26-DR integrating dead reckoning technology during the exhibition.
As the latest addition to Quectel’s comprehensive GNSS portfolio, L26-DR is a concurrent multi-GNSS receiver module embedded with dead reckoning (DR) solution, which greatly improves the positioning accuracy and speed while simplifying customer designs. The DR capability ensures the module to deliver the highest-performance positioning solution available, even when GNSS signal is absent or compromised.
L26-DR is able to acquire and track any mix of GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS signals, which allows accurate navigation in harsh environments such as urban canyons. Compared with using GPS only, enabling multiple GNSS systems generally increases the number of visible satellites, reduces the time to first fix and improves positioning accuracy, especially when driving in rough urban environments.
Designed in an ultra-compact size of 12.2mm × 16.0mm × 2.3 mm, the compact GNSS module also supports other precise positioning technologies, including Differential GPS (RTCM) and SBAS (WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS/GAGAN). The super performance makes L26-DR ideal for automotive and industrial applications.
The electronica 2018, the world’s largest electronic components exhibition, will last until November 16. Quectel IoT experts are onsite available to meet with you at Stand C3.337.
