Würth Elektronik’s GNSS modules are available in UART and I²C interfaces

Würth Elektronik’s GNSS modules, Elara and Erinome series, are suitable for different application areas, such as tracking and navigation devices, container localization, fleet management or autonomous agricultural machines.

Elara Modules:

The Elara-I module is a compact GNSS module with an integrated antenna for operation in location-based applications, products, and services. Based on the Qualcomm SirfStar V 5e B01 chipset, it supports two major GNSS constellations (GPS and GLONASS). The integrated antenna on top of the Elara-I module allows easier hardware integration, as no effort for antenna integration and matching is required. The compact 10 mm x 10 mm design allows the module to fit in small-size applications.

The Elara-II module is a compact GNSS module for operation in location-based applications, products, and services. Based on the Qualcomm SirfStar V 5e B01 chipset, it supports two major GNSS constellations (GPS and GLONASS). The Elara-II is one of the smallest GNSS modules currently on the market with an ultra-compact 4.1 mm x 4.1 mm design which allows the module to fit in small-size applications. The connection of an external antenna through the RF pad is required for module operation.

Erinome Modules:

The Erinome-I module is a compact GNSS module with an integrated antenna for operation in location-based applications, products, and services. Based on the Qualcomm SirfStar V 5e B02 chipset, it supports four major GNSS constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou) for fast and accurate positioning. The integrated antenna on top of the Erinome-I module allows easier hardware integration, as no effort for antenna integration and matching is required. The compact 18 mm x 18 mm design allows the module to fit in small-size applications.

The Erinome-II module is a fully-featured GNSS module with an external antenna connector. The module is based on Qualcomm SirfStar V 5e B02 chipset and it supports four major GNSS constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou) for fast and accurate positioning. The ultra-compact 7 mm x 7 mm design allows the module to fit in small-size applications. The connection of external antenna through the RF pad is required for module operation.
