Trimble introduced the Trimble BD930 module as part of its Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) OEM portfolio.

This small module features triple-frequency support for GPS and GLONASS plus dual-frequency support for BeiDou and Galileo constellations.

Capable of receiving a wide range of commercially available GNSS signals, the 220 channel BD930 takes advantage of available signals to provide optimal and trimble_OEM_inbodyreliable RTK centimeter positioning.

The announcement was made Sept. 18 at ION GNSS 2013 Conference and Exhibition.

The triple-frequency Trimble BD930 (measuring 41mm x 51mm) is a small, powerful GNSS module specifically designed for applications requiring high accuracy in a compact package. Form-Fit-Function compatible with the Trimble BD920 receiver, the module tracks all available GNSS constellations including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou.

The BD930 is designed for all levels of accuracy with an advanced engine that provides GNSS, DGNSS and RTK positioning in challenging environments such as under tree canopy and urban canyons. The BD930 allows for easy integration and rugged dependability. Flexible connectivity options – Ethernet, RS232 or USB – provide fast data transfer and easy configuration via standard Web browsers. External 10 MHz frequency input is supported for advanced applications.


The Trimble BD930 module is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2013 through the Trimble Precision GNSS + Inertial worldwide sales channel. For more information, visit
