The B36 blueprint is a solution that integrates u-blox technologies (cellular, positioning and short range) in a single board with PCB-mount antennas. The B36 board represents a tested and optimized design for vehicle tracking, in a small form factor.
All variants include the short range module ANNA-B112, which supports Bluetooth® 5 low energy.
All variants support concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS, SBAS and Galileo systems. Two variants also support untethered dead reckoning.
There are two cellular options, both designed to operate globally. The G450-1 and G450-2 variants are 2G-only quad band GSM/GPRS devices. The R412-1 and R412-2 variants provide LTE Cat M1/NB1 and EGPRS technologies.
Blueprint B36 is designed to meet the RF requirements imposed by the main North American and European certification schemes. To verify the performance, parameters like Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS) have been tested in a fully anechoic chamber.
Blueprint B36 is an integrated device with coexisting GNSS, cellular and Bluetooth Low Energy technologies. The coexistence of GNSS and cellular is not to be neglected, and can be challenging if not considered from the beginning. In the scope of the B36, schematic and layout have been optimized to obtain the best performance and be compliant with North America and European certification.
