GPS Technology Leader's OEM Partners Incorporating Low Power Modules into Designs
FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Aug. 20 -- Navman Wireless OEM Solutions, a leading designer and manufacturer of world-class global positioning system (GPS) technology, announced today that its latest low power, small form factor Jupiter 32 xLP GPS module is now available in production quantities. Featuring the new 65nm SiRFstarIII GSC3e(f)/LPx chipset and providing up to 30% greater power savings than previous designs, the new Jupiter 32 xLP ultra-high sensitivity module is the ideal GPS solution for devices where size matters.
Delivering unparalleled accuracy and extremely fast position fixes, the Jupiter 32 xLP device integrates SiRFstarIII GSW 3.2.4 firmware code and unique Navman software features including Write-to-Flash for easy configuration storage and retrieval; Ephemeris Push for rapid satellite acquisitions and starts; and User Selectable Profiles to maximize operation in even the smallest products. Firmware features incorporate rapid time-to-first-fix in urban environments, high navigation sensitivity and stability, and quick transient condition response and jamming mitigation.
"The Jupiter 32 xLP is the ideal solution, offering near drop-in compatibility with existing designs," said George Arnott, vice president Global OEM Solutions, Navman Wireless OEM Solutions. "Many of our partners have incorporated the ultra-highly sensitive 20-channel modules into their latest product designs. Not only is it one of the smallest, most sensitive and feature rich GPS receivers on the market, but it offers best-in-class power consumption. Key customers manufacturing battery-powered appliances have already sampled the product and are reporting significantly increased battery life."
Compatible with its predecessor, the popular Jupiter 32 design, the Jupiter 32 xLP is an extremely small GPS receiver sporting a tiny 17.0mm x 15.0mm x 2.7mm form factor and weighing a scant 2.0 grams. Key features of the Jupiter 32 xLP include fully sealed EMI edge shielding, an ultra-high sensitivity GPS receiver with an optimized RF front-end, proprietary shaped filtering to reduce noise, multi-path mitigation for track re-centering and jammer elimination, and dynamic search control to adapt to severe environments. The Jupiter 32 xLP can be further optimized with user selectable navigation modes via a simple ASCII command that can be stored in Flash memory. These Navigation modes allow the selection of General Use, Automotive, Pedestrian and optimized Low Power modes to suit any application. For more specific requirements, additional configuration of these settings is possible.
