SiRFstarIII GSC3LTi and GSC3LTif Flagship Multimode A-GPS Solution

These tiny dynamos condense SiRFstarIII™ technology into the lowest power, highest performing SiRF solution, and they measure a compact 6x6x1.2 mm—thanks to 90-nanometer technology. Less expensive and 25% smaller and than the GSC3LT, the GSC3LTi is engineered for wireless applications and handheld systems with centralized power management that don’t require a wholly independent, self-managed GPS subsystem power supply. Internal Flash memory is optional (GSC3LTif).

Horizontal Position Accuracy 1 • Autonomous <2.5>

The GSC3LTi(f) is supported by SiRF standard autonomous software that’s setting new performance benchmarks in the portable navigation systems market. SiRF standard autonomous software also supports recently announced SiRFInstantFix technology, which eliminates the initial task of obtaining broadcast GPS data from the satellites themselves, resulting in a faster Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF), even in weak signal environments.
The GSC3LTi(f) also supports SiRFLoc Client, the patented Multimode A-GPS software powering mobile phones optimized for location-enabled-services. SiRFLoc improves GPS location capability in wireless system environments by utilizing various modes of wireless infrastructure assistance to improve weak signal reception.
The GSC3LTi(f) GPS performance is fully compliant with the industry-standard Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) TS25.171 and CDMA TIA916 requirements, with extremely fast assisted fix speeds that are often significantly faster than required by the standard.
