BDS/GPS Dual-system Anti-Interference Positioning module BDS/GPS Dual-system Anti-Interference Positioning module

Brief Introduction

UM220-III NB is a BDS/GPS dual-system module designed for auto aftermarket such as vehicle monitoring and navigation. It is also a good choice for handheld devices, and balloon sounding applications.

UM220-III NB is the third generation of UM220 series module, based on Unicore Low power GNSS SoC UC6225. It is most suitable for large volume GNSS applications requiring small size and low cost.

Outstanding Functions of Navigation Positioning

With the optimized algorithm of Multi-system mitigation and Kalman, UM220-III NB module keeps outstanding ability of acquisition and tracking under complex environment and continuous reliable positioning results. Through more than 10,000 hours of laboratory and more than 30,000 hours real-road tests, and more than1,000,000 km-road validation, UM220-III NB provides users with excellent navigation and positioning experience.

High Sensitive Design

With Unicore Ultra-Sense high sensitivity design, UM220-III NB can provide excellent acquisition and tracking sensitivity under weak signal conditions, maintain the position continuity and reliability of the receiver.

Support DGNSS and AGNSS

Extended support for differential GNSS, assisted GNSS positioning function. Support  TCM2.3/3.2.

Compatible with Mainstream GPS Module,  Cost saving

UM220-III NB module is compatible with world-class mainstream GPS module in size and interface, the SMD surface-mount technology makes it easy for users’ production, saving users design and production costs.
