MMT Announces the World's Smallest GPS Receiver
LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 14 /-- MMT announced today, at the Institute of Navigation Show, the availability of their MN1010 Module. It is the world's smallest complete global positioning system (GPS) receiver. The ultra small design is packaged into a 10x10x1.8mm, RF shielded 36 pin package. This module is a low power, high performance GPS Receiver solution designed for portable consumer electronic applications. It draws less than 75mW making it an ideal solution for battery operated, PDA and wireless applications devices. It is a complete 12 channel GPS receiver that only requires power and an antenna to operate. The 12 channel receiver allows all satellites in view to be tracked, providing a solution to minimize position jumps caused by individual satellite blockage.
The GPS chipset integrated into the MN1010 is from u-Nav microelectronics and features the uN1008 CMOS RF Front-End and the highly integrated uN8130 Base-band Processor. This chipset provides a low power, high performance cost competitive solution.
The MN1010 is supported by an evaluation kit which includes software and references designs to reduce time and cost for the OEM development. Samples are currently available with full production quantities scheduled for October 2005.
"MMT is committed to providing high quality GPS solutions in a small, low power package for portable consumer applications. We believe that the combination of MMT's advanced manufacturing technology together with the low power GPS chipset solution has produced an outstanding state of the art product," said Alfred Low, CEO of Micro Modular Technologies Ltd.
Incorporated in May 2004, our corporate mission is to develop GPS modules and other smart GPS modules that allow our customer to design with ease thus shortening their product development cycle. MMT is headquartered in Singapore with design center in Irvine and Singapore. For further information please visit us at: micromodular.com.sg
