Acal BFi first to sample the world’s smallest complete GPS receiver
11 April 2012
Acal BFi has obtained the first samples of the world’s smallest complete GPS receiver, the OriginGPS ORG1410. This complete GPS System-in-Package (SiP) allows high-volume, cost-sensitive applications to achieve high levels of integration and sensitivity, combined with low power consumption and an ultra-compact footprint.
The integration of a SiRFstarIV GPS processor enables the ORG1410 to operate in challenging GPS environments, such as indoor tracking or when the end-user is on the move. This high level of GPS performance is achieved by using innovative GPS firmware which can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals, and opportunistically update its internal parameters. This enables the ORG1410 to deliver near-continuous navigation.
Within its 10mm x 10mm package, the ORG1410 integrates an active antenna; RF shield; TCXO and RTC crystal; LNA and SAW filters; and UART, SPI or I2C host interfaces; whilst achieving ultra-low power consumption of less than 15mW; a fast position fix of under one second and sensitivity of -163dBm.
A limited number of ORG1410 samples, in addition to development kits for lead customers, are available immediately from Acal BFi.
