Source: Unicore Chinese semiconductor vendor Unicore has introduced a quad-system multi-frequency global navigation satellite system (GNSS) module for use in applications such as robotics, drones, intelligent drives and mechanical control.

The UM482 module supports satellite signals including BDS B1/B2, GPS L1/L2, GLONASS L1/L2, GALILEO E1/E5b and SBAS. The device uses the company’s Nebulas II chip and UGypsophila real-time kinematic (RTK) algorithm for optimizing matrix processing. Unicore says the module helps in heading processing, shortening of RTK and heading installation time to five seconds, and significantly improves the reliability and accuracy of RTK and heading.

The UM482 integrates an onboard microelectromechanical (MEMS) chip and U-Fusion integrated navigation algorithm that results in optimized continuity and reliability of accurate heading and positioning output in tough environments such as city canyons, tunnels and overpasses.
