Lower Power Consumption for OEMStar - 20/09/2010

NovAtel is pleased to announce that the 1.011 Firmware Release for its OEMStar L1 GNSS receiver has significantly reduced the card’s power consumption. The receiver now consumes only 450mW for GPS+GLONASS operation and 360mW for GPS-only operation.



This makes the OEMStar ideal for battery powered applications such as handheld GIS data collectors, smart survey antennas, and even some unmanned vehicles.


The OEMStar receiver is NovAtel’s lowest cost, high performance L1 GNSS receiver. The 14-channel OEMStar provides accurate positioning using L1 GPS, GLONASS and SBAS signals. NovAtel’s advanced GL1DE® technology is also available on the OEMStar receiver.


NovAtel is committed to providing excellent value to our customers in the form of firmware updates and upgrades. By providing this functionality as a firmware update, customers can apply it to their existing receivers, enabling quick changeover and minimal downtime. Our 1.011 firmware update is available free of charge to all NovAtel customers.
