LC86G series increases the number of visible satellites - GNSS Module - Quectel

April 20, 2023

The LC86G is one of the latest GNSS modules of Quectel

Based on the latest enhanced chipset, Quectel's new LC86G GNSS module supports concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, BDS, Galileo and QZSS. The LC86G is designed to be compatible with Quectel L80 and L86 modules, allowing for smooth migration between them. Compared with single constellation receivers, by enabling multiple GNSS constellations, the LC86G series increases the number of visible satellites, reduces the time to first fix and improves positioning accuracy, especially when driving through dense urban canyons.

The integrated antenna on top makes the LC86G easier to design in and eliminates most RF problems during design. The integrated LNA delivers industry-leading sensitivity for high-accuracy positioning, fast signal tracking and acquisition, and better performance even in challenging environments. Its enhanced performance and low power consumption make the LC86G series perfectly suited to applications such as real-time tracking systems and sharing economy services.
