The ZED‑F9K GNSS and dead reckoning module improves positioning performance tenfold over standard precision technology.  

Thalwil, Switzerland – May 2, 2019 – u‑blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies, has announced the u‑blox ZED‑F9K high precision multi‑band GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) module with built‑in inertial sensors. The module combines the latest generation of GNSS receiver technology, signal processing algorithms, and correction services to deliver down to decimeter‑level accuracy within seconds, addressing the evolving needs of ADAS (Advanced Driver‑Assistance Systems) and automated driving markets.

The ZED‑F9K high precision dead reckoning module builds on the u‑blox F9 technology platform. Compatibility with modern GNSS correction services further improves positioning accuracy by compensating ionospheric and other errors. The multi‑band, multi‑constellation RTK (Real Time Kinematics) receiver module receives GNSS signals from all orbiting GNSS constellations. A greater number of visible satellites improves positioning performance in partially obstructed conditions, while increased satellite signal diversity delivers faster convergence times when signals are interrupted.

Inertial sensors integrated into the module constantly monitor changes in the moving vehicle’s trajectory and continue to deliver lane accurate positioning when satellite signals are partially or completely obstructed as is the case when the vehicle is in parking garages, tunnels, urban canyons, or forested areas. When satellite signals become available again, the module combines inertial sensor data with GNSS signals to deliver fast convergence times and high availability of the decimeter‑level solution.

The result of this combination of the latest developments in GNSS technology, correction services, and inertial sensing is a tenfold increase in positioning performance over standard precision solutions.

By robustly providing lane accurate position information, the ZED‑F9K meets the needs of ADAS and autonomous driving applications, as well as head units and advanced navigation systems. The module’s accuracy and low latency also makes it ideal for automotive OEMs and Tier 1s developing V2X (Vehicle‑to‑everything) communication systems. By continuously sharing their location with other traffic participants, these V2X systems contribute to increasing overall road safety and reducing traffic congestion.

“We designed the ZED‑F9K to be a turnkey high precision GNSS solution that caters to the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s connected cars,” says Alex Ngi, Product Manager, Product Strategy for Dead Reckoning, u‑blox. “The ZED‑F9K is unique in that it integrates a multitude of technologies, from the GNSS receiver to the inertial measurement unit and relevant dead reckoning algorithms into a single device for which we can ensure performance throughout the customer product development cycle.”

Samples will be available upon request by July 2019.

High precision positioning

High precision positioning

Achieving centimeter-level accuracy by combining RTK technology and u-blox GNSS expertise.

High precision positioning can be achieved by combining Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou, with Real Time Kinematics (RTK) technology. RTK is a technique that uses the receiver’s measurements of the phase of the satellite signal’s carrier wave. These measurements combined with corrections from a local or virtual base station allow the receiver to solve carrier ambiguities and provide centimeter level accurate position information to the end user, typically a moving device referred to as the rover.

The demand for scalable high precision technology is growing rapidly, as evident in the automotive world with next generation HUD and V2X applications, and in robotics with applications such as UAVs and robotic lawnmowers.

However, due to the complexity, size, power, and cost restrictions, existing high precision solutions have been unable to meet the demands of these markets.

Building on the success of our NEO M8P high precision GNSS module series and drawing on our extensive experience in GNSS positioning technologies, including dead reckoning, multi‑band, Real Time Kinematics, and GNSS correction services, we’ve created the u‑blox F9 platform. The platform delivers the next level of scalable GNSS high precision technology, which will pave the path for new navigation applications such as augmented reality and unmanned vehicle navigation.

Updates on Millimeter-wave 5G

Many countries have yet to release, or license, mm-Wave spectrum for service providers to use or lease. The US, via the FCC, just auctioned seven 100 MHz blocks of spectrum in the FCC Auction 102. This mm-Wave spectrum covers the lower and upper 24 GHz spectrum, between 24.25 GHz and 24.45 GHz, and 24.75 GHz and 25.25 GHz. 2904 out of 2909 licenses were won, establishing what is commonly deemed as a success of the second high-band auction [1, 2]. FCC Auction 101, the first high-band auction, licensed spectrum in the 28 GHz range, and where only available for a portion of the country. The 20 GHz mm-Wave may be the most likely spectrum for 5G to start, at it appears that there is more action around the globe toward enabling the 20 GHz spectrum for commercial use.

However, there are currently some early “5G” services purely for Fixed Wireless Access that operate other areas of the mm-Wave spectrum. For example, internet provider Starry, uses frequency bands between 37 GHz and 40 GHz to provide their service, which reportedly has a capacity of 5 Gbps and a coverage radius of 2km. This type of internet service is not traditional cellular service from a base station to a mobile device, but instead a last-mile internet connectivity and service that delivers internet to fixed customer transceivers placed on buildings.

Early 5G build outs and tests all appear to be sub-6 GHz (mid-band) or low-band (sub-1 GHz), with only hints that some wireless operators may use mm-Wave spectrum alongside sub-6 GHz in select urban areas in the future. For example, Verizon’s early 5G deployments in Minneapolis and Chicago only offer sub-6 GHz 5G, and though impressive, are only suggested to reach average speeds to 450 Mbps. There also appear to be substantial service issues with Verizon’s 5G, where service is spotty and far from full, or even adequate, and coverage [3].

One of the big hurdles of implementing mm-Wave 5G user equipment (UE) mobile services is impacted by both the challenge of deploying and implementing multitudes of multi-element mm-Wave antennas, as well as implementing complementary hardware in a handset. There are early modems and beamforming/MIMO SoCs that are designed to enable more compact and cost effective multi-element antenna arrays, commonly considered necessary to provide mobile 5G service. For the most part, these radio devices have only recently entered the market, or are just now being evaluated by select manufacturing partners.

Though mm-Wave 5G is still nebulous, there are some certainties. Wireless operators will want to recoup their investments in mm-Wave spectrum by deploying some variety of mm-Wave 5G. Moreover, it is likely that as the data revolution continues, more areas and Telco’s will invest in building out higher performance core and backhaul networks to service higher demand RANs. Lastly, there will likely be a substantial amount of real-world testing before Telco’s move toward deploying mm-Wave 5G given the variety of novel scenarios and factors mm-Wave 5G presents compared to sub-6 GHz wireless services.

Powercast’s Wireless Charging Grips employ Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC to connect to proprietary wireless transmitter via Bluetooth LE for contactless recharging

Oslo, Norway – April 25, 2019 – Nordic Semiconductor today announces that Powercast, a Pittsburgh, PA-based RF energy harvesting and wireless power technology company, has selected Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide the core processing power and wireless connectivity for its ‘Wireless Charging Grips’. The accessory lets Nintendo Switch gamers snap their Joy-Con controllers into it for easy handling, and the embedded wireless charging capability eliminates the need to dock or plug-in their Joy-Con controllers for charging.

According to Powercast, the Wireless Charging Grips are the world’s first genuinely wireless rechargeable consumer gaming product. The grips employ Powercast’s Powerharvester® receiver to harness power sent over the air by Powercast’s PowerSpot® radio frequency (RF) wireless power transmitter. When placed into the Wireless Charging Grips, the Joy-Con controllers connect to the battery embedded in the grips and automatically recharge their internal battery as required. When the user has finished gaming, they simply set the grips down in front of the PowerSpot transmitter to automatically recharge the battery within.

The Wireless Charging Grips contain Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC, which connects and communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth LE with the on-board Nordic nRF51422 SoC in the PowerSpot transmitter. If the battery in the Wireless Charging Grips begins to run low and the grips are within range (up to 60 cm) of the wireless transmitter, the nRF52832 SoC wirelessly connects with the nRF51422 SoC to request power from the transmitter. Once verified, the PowerSpot transmitter turns on and delivers the contactless wireless power to the grips. The nRF51422 SoC also wirelessly monitors the battery status of connected devices and enables the user to employ a Bluetooth 4.0 (and later) smartphone or tablet to remotely monitor device charge levels and set timers for the transmitter to charge devices via Powercast’s iOS or Android companion app.

The Wireless Charging Grips employ an embedded 320mAh Li-ion battery, which in turn charges the batteries in the Joy-Con controllers. The grips also act as a backup battery pack, keeping the Joy-Con batteries topped off when out of the transmitter’s range for about 38 hours of gameplay on one charge, thanks in part to the ultra low power characteristics of the Nordic SoC. The nRF52832 has been engineered to minimize power consumption with features such as the 2.4GHz radio’s 5.5mA peak RX/TX currents and a fully-automatic power management system that reduces power consumption by up to 80 percent compared with Nordic’s nRF51 Series SoCs.

The nRF52832 SoC offered excellent options to reduce power consumption via sleep modes and the enabling and disabling of included peripherals as necessary.  – Eric Biel, Powercast

Nordic’s nRF52832 multiprotocol SoC combines a 64MHz, 32-bit Arm® Cortex® M4F processor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT™, and proprietary 2.4GHz RF protocol software) featuring -96-dB RX sensitivity, with 512kB Flash memory and 64kB RAM. The nRF52832 is supplied with Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 5-certifed RF software protocol stack for building advanced Bluetooth LE applications. Nordic’s unique software architecture provides a clear separation between the RF protocol software and Powercast’s application code, simplifying the development and testing process and ensuring the SoftDevice doesn’t become corrupted when developing, compiling, testing, and verifying application code. The S132 SoftDevice features Central, Peripheral, Broadcaster and Observer Bluetooth LE roles, supports up to twenty connections, and enables concurrent role operation.

“We were concerned with power consumption and we wanted to maximize battery life for the gamer,” says Eric Biel, Principal Engineer at Powercast. “The nRF52832 SoC offered excellent options to reduce power consumption via sleep modes and the enabling and disabling of included peripherals as necessary.

“However, we knew we would need a Bluetooth LE radio as well, which led us to the Nordic SoC as a ‘no-brainer’. We could use the nRF52832 SoC as a single-chip solution for all of the basic processing as well as the Bluetooth LE tasks, while still hitting our power consumption targets.

“In addition, Powercast historically has a strong working relationship with Nordic and we appreciate the excellent support provided by Nordic’s DevZone, the great documentation on all of the company’s products, and the overall quality of its Bluetooth LE solutions.”
