MikroElektronika releases GSM/GNSS click
GSM/GNSS click from MikroElektronika.
March 3, 2017
The GSM/GNSS click from MikroElektronika (Zemun, Belgrade) combines GPS/GLONASS location tracking with Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) module capability for mobile communication. The applications for this new click board include asset tracking for navigation devices based on GPS and GLONASS, road navigation devices, public transport, and wearable devices.
When connected to a GPS antenna, it can receive GPS coordinates, time, and other information from orbiting satellites. The click can be used for all GSM functions — calls, messages (SMS, MMS), mobile internet. GSM/GNSS click has an onboard MicroSD card socket, micro SIM card socket, a Bluetooth antenna (the MC60 module supports Bluetooth 3.0) and additional pins for connecting speakers and a microphone.

The module can balance between positioning accuracy and power consumption according to the environmental and motion conditions. The typical power consumption is around 2.8 milliamps.
The GNSS engine can use this information for later positioning, if there is not enough information from the satellites.
