The 1.6 firmware series brings support to the new ELLIPSE-D hardware 2.x with an updated internal GNSS receiver. This new GNSS receiver allows the ELLIPSE-D to benefit from all GNSS constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, QZSS, …) for better signal availability and RTK reliability.

This new GNSS receiver also features the most advanced on-board interface mitigation technology on the market to limit inter-equipment issues and urban jammers while reducing the power consumption to less than 1.5 Watts.

This new firmware release also contains bug fixes to improve the overall product stability and remains fully backward compatible with previous firmware revisions.
