Condor GPS Modules

Trimble’s Condor family of GPS modules features major advancements in signal tracking for applications working in poor signal environments. With their higher sensitivity, performance and faster startup times, the Condor GPS modules enable system integrators to easily add Global Positioning System (GPS) capability to a mobile device with minimal impact on its size or battery life at a very economical price.

The Condor GPS family includes modules with different form factors and interface options: different dimensions, active or passive antenna, antenna detection, Standby Pin, UART,USB and more.

  • GPS L1 Frequency C/A Code Receiver
  • NMEA Output and Input
  • SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS) Capable
  • aGPS Capable
  • Update Rate up to 5 Hz
  • PPS Timing Output

Copernicus II GPS Module

Trimble’s Copernicus® II GPS receiver delivers proven performance and Trimble quality for a new generation of position-enabled products. It features the Trimble revolutionary TrimCore™ software technology for extremely fast startup times and high performance in foliage canopy and urban canyon environments.

Designed for the demands of automated, high-volume production processes, the Copernicus II module is a complete 12-channel SBAS (which includes WAAS, EGNOS) capable GPS receiver in a 19 mm W x 19 mm L x 2.54 mm H (0.75 W x 0.75 L x 0.1 H) thumbnail-sized module.

The small, thin, single-sided module is packaged in tape and reel for pick and place manufacturing processes; 28 reflow-solder able edge castellation provide interface to your design without costly I/O and RF connectors. Each module is manufactured and factory tested to Trimble’s highest quality standards. RoHS-Compliant (Pb-free).

2-1-1-3-Buffalo-GNSS-Receiver

Buffalo GNSS Receiver

Trimble’s Buffalo B1919 GNSS receiver module delivers top performance and Trimble quality in a new generation of positioning products. The Buffalo B1919 GNSS receiver provides L1. Frequency GPS and GLONASS – using the NMEA protocol from the serial port, and also a PPS timing output. Buffalo can acquire and track using a combined solution of GPS and GLONASS. Galileo support will be available through a firmware upgrade.

The B1919 has an onboard low noise amplifier (LNA) that is compatible with both active and passive antenna implementations. It includes an onboard RTC and TCXO. The B1919 also has built-in antenna detection for open and short circuit conditions.

Buffalo modules match the footprint of Copernicus II and Condor C1919 GPS receiver modules, providing an upgrade path for existing designs. The Buffalo B1919 receiver features powerful positioning performance in a 19.0 x 19.0 x 2.54 mm package. The module’s 28 reflow-solder able surface-mount edge castellation provide an interface for your design without the need for costly I/O and RF connectors.

Choose the Buffalo B1919 for next generation GNSS performance, the best components and the highest production quality standards.

2-1-2-1-Silvana

Trimble Silvana & Anapala ACM

Compatible with Trimble’s Copernicus II and Condor families of GPS solutions, Silvana allows you to choose the best solution for your application. In addition to its onboard antenna, Silvana sports a connector for an external antenna. An antenna detection circuit automatically switches to the external antenna, when connected. With Silvana, one flexible solution serves both internal and external antenna applications. Multiple GPS solution options allow you to choose the best fit for your application. With its external antenna connector and auto-switch, Silvana enables a single flexible product to support multiple applications or installation options.

Anapala supports multiple GPS solutions, but relies on the integral matched antenna. Multiple GPS solution options allow you to choose the best fit for your application

2-1-2-3-Zelia

Trimble Zelia ACM

The smaller Zelia ACM integrates the Condor C1011 GPS receiver with a linearly-polarized printed monopole antenna element. The printed monopole takes up less space than a patch antenna, giving Zelia a smaller size than the other ACM’s.

The Zelia ACM is an omni-directional antenna ideal for portable device applications.
