New GNSS Modules for IoT Applications

Deutsche Telekom IoT GmbH has certified the first two products from Würth Elektronik and added them to its IoT Digital Shelf. In the Shelf, the Telekom subsidiary gathers selected products on the market to complete its own portfolio with certified hardware enabling it to offer its customers end-to-end solutions. Localization technologies recommended by Deutsche Telekom IoT: the GNSS modules Erinome I and Erinome II.

The Erinome series exploits all four GNSS for localization and navigation tasks. Both modules can be operated in low-power mode, important for mobile and battery-powered devices. Erinome I (18 mm × 18 mm × 6.4 mm) has an integrated antenna, Erinome II (7 mm × 7 mm × 1.6 mm) does not.

The two GNSS modules are also part of Deutsche Telekom’s IoT Solution Optimizer. This tool allows companies to model and test digital twins of their IoT business ideas cost-effectively and without risk.

The various requirements of position-based applications can be met with the Würth Elektronik GNSS modules: Tracking of containers, navigation of agricultural machinery or drones, fleet management, cartography, geotagging cameras, monitoring animal transports or even referencing for international time synchronization.

An evaluation kit, the Würth Elektronik Navigation Satellite Software (WENSS) tool and on-site consulting by engineers facilitates developers’ integration of position determination into their product for the first time can soon achieve optimum results.
