The World's Smallest GPS
Devices keep shrinking, it seems like every other month, a new device is being unveiled to the public, smaller, sleeker, faster, thinner, slimmer than ever before.
GPS, the Global Positioning System that keeps us all on track, is shrinking as well.
It will be used in things like cellular handsets and smartphones, PDA's, Personal Navigation Devices, mobile multimedia devices, digital still cameras, sport & Recreation accessories, as well as Micro robots and UAV's.
It isn't going to be long before GPS units like this are embedded in children't clothing that parents can track where their children are at all times.
The ORG4472 module is the industry’s smallest, autonomous, fully featured GPS engine, a miniature multi-channel receiver that continuously tracks all satellites in view and provides accurate positioning data in industry’s standard NMEA format.
An internal ARM CPU core and sophisticated firmware keep GPS payload off the host and allow integration in low resources embedded solutions.
Featuring OriginGPS proprietary Noise-Free Zone System (NFZ™) technology theORG4472 offers the ultimate in high sensitivity GPS performance in small size.
The ORG4472 module is complete SiP (System-in-Package) featuring advanced miniature packaging technology and an ultra small footprint designed to commit unique integration features for high volume, low power and cost sensitive applications. The ORG4472 module incorporates new SiRFstarIV™ GPS processor.
The revolutionary SiRFstarIV™ architecture is optimized for how people really use location-aware products: often indoors with periods of unobstructed sky view when moving from place to place.
This new architecture can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals to achieve a state of near continuous availability by maintaining and opportunistically updating its internal fine time, frequency, and ephemeris data while consuming mere microwatts of battery power.
