Qualcomm Introduces World’s First Gigabit LTE Modem
All cellular modems require an RF transceiver which interfaces to the antennas and the outside world. The X16 is no exception and pairs with the world’s first Gigabit-class RF transceiver, the WTR5975. This single-chip transceiver solution supports all 3GPP bands, including 3.5 GHz support and 5 GHz LTE-U in addition to GNSS (GPS. Glonass, Galileo and Beidou). The Gigabit class LTE support of the transceiver includes up to 4x downlink carrier aggregation (CA) and 2x uplink CA as well as 256 QAM and 4x4 MIMO.

Get Lost, GPS: China Plans Launch of 40 Beidou Navigation Satellites
Over the next five years, China plans to launch around 40 Beidou satellites, which will eventually provide global satellite coverage to rival the US-developed Global Positioning System (GPS), Xinhua reported on Wednesday.

Multi-GNSS receivers boost performance and embed security
M8 FW 3.01 now also supports Galileo, in addition to GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and SBAS. It can track up to three constellations concurrently and makes use of all SBAS and QZSS augmentation systems at the same time. With Galileo fully deployed, the European positioning system will provide access to 24 additional satellites, thereby significantly increasing availability of GNSS signals and further improving position accuracy in challenging urban environments. M8 supports Galileo-based eCall, the European emergency call system, which will be required in new vehicles starting 2018. It is also compliant with ERA-GLONASS, eCall's Russian equivalent.

Flexible antennas target positioning applications
Bentoni is a positioning antenna for all of the global public satellite constellations: GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and GALILEO. It is designed to be used in trackers, portable devices, network components, drones and wearable electronics. Asper is a dual antenna with two separate antenna systems in a single form factor. It combines a 1559 – 1609 MHz antenna with a 2.4 – 2.5 GHz antenna in the same part for positioning applications with wireless connectivity as well. This antenna is suitable for sports cameras, trackers, dash cams, portable devices, network devices and wearable electronics.

India successfully puts its fifth navigation satellite into orbit
India on Wednesday successfully put into orbit in textbook style its fifth navigation satellite called IRNSS-1E powered by its own PSLV rocket.
