The Trimble BD920 GNSS OEM Module is used for navigation applications in various platforms that need reliable positioning and centimeter accuracy. The module is designed to protect high-quality GNSS signals from EMI sources on the host platform and reduce radiation emissions, facilitating compliance certification.

The Trimble BD920 GNSS OEM Module’s compact design makes it ideal for embedding in mobile platforms. The receiver module serves as a reliable positioning interface for unmanned vehicles, control systems, external processing devices and office computers under all environments. You can configure the receiver to be a base or reference station or a mobile or rover receiver. The BD920 module also has automatic initialization and lets you switch between positioning modes for greater precision.

Trimble’s solid RTK technology and high quality standards of manufacturing and testing ensure high update rate and low latency (< 20 m/sec) for precise positioning. Centimeter-level accuracy is based on carrier phase RTK and submeter accuracy code-based solutions. Receiver output is streamed and provides information such as time, position, heading, number of tracked satellites, quality assurance (figure of merit) numbers and one pulse per second (1 PPS) strobe signal for precise time synchronization of remote devices. Receiver control is through serial ethernet or USB port with web interface or binary interface commands.


The Trimble BD920 receiver module has multi-constellation GNSS support for the fastest and most reliable RTK initializations at 1-2 centimeter-level positioning. The kalman filter PVT engine supports applications that do not require centimeter-level positioning. It also provides accurate GNSS, DGNSS or SBAS in all environments.
