The ANNA-F9 High Precision GNSS Mini-PCIe card can be easily integrated with an embedded system to make a compact solution for AI robotics, smart vehicles, machine navigation, automatic agricultural machinery, and railway transportation applications that require centimeter-level positioning accuracy to ensure their operation. In addition, says the company, its unique CAN-to ADR technology extends its usage to tunnels and urban canyons where satellite signal is poor or blocked.

The card integrates a u-blox ZED-F9 receiver platform, providing multi-band GNSS and RTK positioning. ANNA-F9 series support RTCM formatted corrections and centimeter-level positioning from local base stations or virtual reference stations (VRS) in a Network RTK setup. Moreover, says the company, the GNSS module is available to upgrade for future SSR-type correction service, which is suitable for mass market penetration.

The ANNA-F9 series has optional configurations including 3D inertial measurement unit (IMU), which support Dead Reckoning technology, UDR (Untethered Dead Reckoning), ADR (Automotive Dead Reckoning) or the company’s CAN-to-ADR solution. Additionally, it is equipped with 3D gyroscope, 3D accelerometer and 3D magnetometer for users who need to monitor the operation of the machine.

Antzertech is a subsidiary of Innodisk.
