Trimble Introduces New Compact OEM GNSS Receiver Module with Onboard Communications for High-Accuracy Mobile Positioning Applications

Integrated Communications Speed Development of Advanced Positioning Products for Integrators

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 19, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — �Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble® BD920-W3G receiver and communication module. As part of Trimble's GNSS OEM portfolio, the new compact module features centimeter-level, Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning capabilities coupled with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cellular that deliver flexible communication options for precise, mobile positioning. The BD920-W3G module's connectivity and configuration ease allow system integrators and OEMs to easily add GNSS centimeter-level positioning to specialized or custom hardware solutions.

The announcement was made today at the ION GNSS 2012 Conference and Exhibition.

"The OEM and system integrator communities demand high performance, reliability and support for their positioning solutions," said Dale Hermann, director of marketing and sales. "The Trimble BD920-W3G delivers the latest in GNSS and communication technology in an easy-to-integrate form factor for demanding conditions and applications such as field computing, port automation, and lightweight robotic or unmanned vehicles."

The Trimble BD920-W3G module has been designed for applications requiring centimeter accuracy in a compact package. By integrating wireless communications on the same module, the task of receiving and transmitting data such as RTK corrections is greatly simplified. A single intuitive Web interface allows a variety of use cases to be supported. In addition to GNSS base and rover setups with Wi-Fi or UMTS modem, the module also allows simultaneous customer access to the Internet.

The dual-frequency GPS/GLONASS BD920-W3G provides customers with a more integrated product that can reduce their integration effort and time to market. Wireless communications and Ethernet connectivity are available on the module to allow high-speed data transfer and configuration via standard Web browsers. USB and RS232 are also supported. By tightly integrating communications and GNSS receiver, integrators can reduce costs and integration complexity.

The Trimble BD920-W3G is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2013 through Trimble's Precision GNSS + Inertial sales channel worldwide. The BD920-W3G can be viewed in 3D on Trimble's 3D Warehouse by SketchUp. OEMs and integrators can also download a 3D model into their applications.
