Trimble BD970 GNSS Receiver Module


The Trimble BD970 GNSS receiver module has reached End of Life (EOL). This product has been replaced by the Trimble BD990 GNSS receiver board.



The Trimble BD970 GNSS receiver module is a compact receiver designed to deliver centimeter accuracy to a variety of applications. This multi-constellation receiver supports BeiDou (B1/B2), GLONASS (L1/L2) and GPS (L2C and L5). The unit is also capable of tracking Galileo signals for both testing and evaluation.

Professionals use the BD970 embedded GNSS positioning technology at the core of precision applications as it provides trouble-free operation and long-term future-proofing. The unit also provides dramatically improved RTK initialization, proven tracking technology and on-board multipath mitigation.

The BD970 was designed to make integration easy with Ethernet connectivity incorporated on the board. This allows high speed configuration and data transfer, by simply using standard web browsers. CAN, RS232 and USB ports are also available. Software commands are used to reduce development times and simplify integration. Software features can be upgraded to allow increased functionality as requirements change.


  • 220 channels for multi-constellation GNSS support
  • Flexible interfacing through CAN, Ethernet, USB or RS232 ports
  • Extremely compact form factor
  • Delivers centimeter level accuracy
