Winning Combinations to Design Faster

Fleet tracking solution

Leverage GPS, cellular, Bluetooth and battery backup

The global vehicle tracking market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.9%, a size of $14.9 billion in 2025. The solutions are as diverse as the vehicles they track, but they all incorporate technologies such as GPS, cellular, computers, hardware interfaces, and others.

This winning combination shows a possible solution with GPS, cellular, Bluetooth® and battery backup capabilities using Renesas’ RA6 MCU.

System Benefits:

  • The highly-integrated Arm® Cortex®-M4 120MHz RA6M3 MCU is the communications hub for this system
  • Features a full power map, with Renesas’ single cell battery charger (ISL9301), high efficiency buck-boost regulator (ISL91107) and LDO (ISL9001)
  • BLE communication solution with Renesas’ BTM01 Bluetooth® Module
