MN1010: Low-power GPS Receiver Module

MN1010: Low-power GPS Receiver Module

The Micro Modular Technologies™ MN1010 Global Positioning System GPS Receiver is a complete, 12-channel receiver with fast-acquisition hardware intended for OEM applications. The MN1010 is complete with integrated RF filtering, flash memory and TCXO. The user needs only provide suitable power and a GPS signal; the MN1010 will provide the GPS solution in NMEA 0183 format. The 12-channel receiver allows all satellites in view to be tracked, providing an over-determined solution to minimize position jumps caused by individual satellite blockage. The fast-acquisition hardware design greatly reduces the time for signal acquisition when the receiver is initially powered up. The MN1010 requires only a 1.8-volt supply and separate 3 volts for the TCXO for low power consumption. For even further power reductions, the OEM could switch power under control of the MN1010.
The small size of the MN1010 is achieved by using advanced manufacturing technology to Wafer Level Packaged (WLP) die and passive components onto an high-density interconnect (HDI) laminate. Space normally used for bond wires, lead frames and plastic encapsulation is eliminated, resulting is an overall size of 10mm by 10mm by 2mm.
The MN1010 is supported by an evaluation kit including software, along with reference designs to speed OEM development. The MN1010 is machine placeable by standard surface mount equipment and is delivered in tape and reel. A metal shield is provided for RF protection and for automated nozzle pickup.
