13-09-2018 | U-Blox | Development Boards

U-blox has introduced a toolset which comprises of u-track software and the C030-R410M application board. The toolset is a rapid-prototyping platform that enables product designers to test and optimise the position accuracy and power usage of wireless location tracking applications that utilise LTE-M and NB-IoT cellular networks, as well as GNSS technology. The toolset is aimed at product engineers operating on battery-powered applications such as sport, people and asset trackers. “With today's technology, product designers can now include optimized battery life in their applications,” commented Florian Bousquet, product manager, Product Center Positioning, at U-blox. “We developed this toolset to give customers a quick and easy way to test the accuracy and the power consumption of their product ideas using the latest generation of our technology,” he said. “In many cases, they can replicate their applications and start testing the performance of different device configurations in under 15 minutes.” He added: “The toolset offers access to the very latest technologies, from LTE-M and NB-IoT cellular communication to our proprietary Super-E mode that delivers the best balance between power consumption and GNSS positioning performance.”
