Quectel launches LC76G, a high-performance single-band GNSS positioning module with very low power consumption

NUREMBERG, Germany-(BUSINESS WIRE)-Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the release of its LC76G model, a compact single-band GNSS module for fast and accurate localization, with very low power consumption. The LC76G has already moved into mass production, with sufficient supply to meet the needs of the global positioning market.


Based on the Airoha AG3352 platform, the LC76G can simultaneously receive and process signals from all constellations (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS), with the support of satellite augmentation systems (SBAS), greatly increases the number of views. satellite and improves positioning accuracy. The LC76G module can receive signals from up to 47 satellites and offers a positioning accuracy of 1.5 m (CEP50 open-sky), a 40% improvement over previous generations of devices.

Available in a cost-optimized version as well as in a low-power version, the latter consumes less than 9 mA @3V in all 4 constellations activated, allowing a reduction of 72 % of power required versus what was needed up there.

This makes the LC76G extremely attractive for battery-powered devices such as portable personal trackers, wildlife and livestock trackers, toll badges, portable container trackers, as well as a range of traditional markets such as shared mobility and low-cost asset tracker.

Including an internal acoustic wave filter and low noise amplifier, the LC76G can connect directly to a passive patch antenna and provides filtering of unwanted interference, ensuring excellent performance even when traveling in dense urban canyons.

The embedded AGNSS EPO ™ technology is supported in the LC76G module, it reduces the time to initial positioning (TTFF), a hot start requiring less than 1 second, a preparation phase of less than 2 seconds, while starting in the cold gets an accurate location adjustment in less than 15 seconds. GNSS’s faster location adjustment makes it possible to use accurate positioning and navigation services anytime, anywhere with less power demand than previously needed.

Although EPO requires manual download of predicted orbits, the LC76G also supports EASY ™ (Embedded Assist System), a system which directly collects predicted orbit information from satellites and provides accelerated repairs within a period of up to 3 days.

Both EPO and Easy ™ are available for each constellation, allowing for faster TTFF and reduced dependency on a particular constellation.

Featuring an LCC form factor and ultra-compact size of 10.1 × 9.7 × 2.4 mm, the LC76G’s footprint is compatible with other industry solutions, as well as the legacy L76 and L76-LB modules from Quectel, which enables seamless transfer of current designs to the latest low power GNSS technology.

Quectel also offers a wide range of high performance antennas, ready to use or customized, that significantly improve wireless connectivity. Quectel’s LC76G can be combined with a selection of GNSS L1 antennas to meet different positioning requirements. Custom connector type and cable length, as well as antenna and test stand design complete is also available to facilitate customer product development.

The LC76G will be on display at Embedded World Nuremberg, Booth #171, Hall 5, June 21-23, 2022.
