    PNT Series Overview

    The PNT Series of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) multi-constellation receivers are self-contained certified modules for positioning, navigation and tracking applications. The PNT-SG3FS and PNT-SG4FM are footprint-compatible flash-based modules for single frequency and multi-frequency GNSS deployments respectively.

    Markets

    Multi-Constellation Receiver

    The PNT-SG3FS standalone module integrates a Teseo III receiver from ST Microelectronics. The multi-constellation receiver can track up to 32 satellite signals in view across GPS L1C/A, BeiDou B1, Galileo E1B/C, GLONASS L1OF, SBAS L1C/A (WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN), and QZSS L1C/A bands. Systems can be designed to enable drop-in compatibility of the multi-frequency PNT-SG4FM that integrates a Teseo IV receiver and adds support for GPS & QZSS L5C, BeiDou B2a, and Galileo E5a bands. A custom firmware is available for Teseo IV based modules that can support IRNSS instead of GLONASS.

    Positioning Accuracy & Speed

    The PNT-SG3FS module supports Differential GPS (DGPS) data according to RTCM 10402.3 for improving location accuracy. The module can output measurement data (carrier phase) supporting PPP-RTK host algorithms for precise positioning applications with a custom firmware and supports 1.8V or 3.3V power supply domains. Assisted GNSS algorithms support extended ephemeris data using local autonomous or server-assisted based solutions for fast Time to First Fix (TTFF) operation. The PNT-SG4FM relies solely on server-assisted based Assisted GNSS. 

    Additional Features

    Both modules embed flash memory that enables support for firmware updates, and, for the PNT-SG3FS, additionally enables data logging, geofencing, odometer, and 5 day autonomous assisted GNSS functionalities. The modules integrate a temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TXCO) for navigation performance and stability, and a real-time clock (RTC) oscillator with a clock-trimming feature to compensate for the accuracy of the 32.768 kHz crystal in timing applications. The PNT-SG4FM has a built-in LNA and SAW filter and adds short and open circuit detection functions for antenna status.

    Evaluation Board Platform

    The evaluation kits are complete standalone platforms for testing. The kit includes a 1558-1615MHz, 3000mm, 49x46x16mm GNSS antenna and a USB-A to USB micro B cable. Performance and configuration can be analyzed using the ST Microelectronics’ Teseo Suite PC tool.

    • • Board powered through USB or battery for standalone usage
    • • ON/OFF and reset buttons
    • • Antenna SMA female connector
    • • PPS output with associated LED
    • • NMEA communication over UART (via USB cable) or I2C over signal connector

      SOFTWARE

      The PNT Series is supported by ST Microelectronics’ TESEO-SUITE PC software tool for managing, configuring and evaluating performance of Teseo GNSS family. ST TESEO-SUITE is able to read, modify and save GNSS configurations. NMEA message-list is configurable per port for logging and analysis.

      CERTIFICATIONS

      The module certifications are scoped to include Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, EN 62368-1:2020/A11:2020, EN 62479:2010, ETSI EN 301 489-1 V2.2.0 + ETSI EN 301 489-19 V2.1.0, and ETSI EN 303 413 V1.1.1.
