NovAtel Launches Business Card–Sized OEM 615 GNSS Receiver
July 21, 2011
NovAtel, Inc. has introduced the newest member of its OEM6 receiver family: the OEM615. Measuring only 46x71x11 millimeters (1.81x2.79x0.43 inches) and weighing 24 grams (0.84 ounces), the diminutive OEM615 provides precise positioning in a familiar, compact form factor.
As with all NovAtel OEM6 series receivers, the OEM615 tracks existing and planned GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Compass signals. With 120 dynamic channels configured to track GPS + GLONASS L1/L2 now as well as constellations and signals yet to become operational. According to the company, the OEM615 is backward-compatible with NovAtel’s popular OEMV-1 series form factor, providing integrators an upgrade path to bring new products to market quickly.
The receiver supports NovAtel performance-enhancing firmware options, including AdVance RTK, ALIGN, and GL1DE, as well as receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM), enabling users to configure the OEM615 for application-specific needs. Application programming interface (API) functionality provides system developers the ability to eliminate system hardware and reduce reducing development time.
Gord Dale, NovAtel's marketing vice-president, says that the new receiver's compact form factor is "ideal for space-constrained applications such as unmanned vehicles, survey, aerospace and defense.”
The OEM615 receiver is available for purchase immediately.
