Inventek Systems (inventeksys.com) Introduces Compact, Low Power SiRFstar IV(TM) GPS Receiver Module for Embedded Global Positioning System (GPS) Applications.

Share Article

Inventek Systems announces its newest compact global positioning system (GPS) receiver module offering industry-leading size, sensitivity, low-power and fast location-fix performance. The ISM470F1 module is optimized for size and battery constrained applications. It is based on the fast and deep search capabilities of CSR’s (http://www.csr.com) SiRFstar IVTM GSD4e platform. The modules firmware includes the SiRFInstantFix technology that minimizes the time-to-first-fix (TTFF) and SiRFaware software for optimizing the performance versus power trade-off. The SiP module is ideally suited for a broad spectrum of size and power restricted applications such as handheld consumer devices, digital cameras, asset tracking, vehicle tracking, and personal tracking for fitness and sports.

Inventek Systems announces its newest compact global positioning system (GPS) receiver module offering industry-leading size, sensitivity, low-power and fast location-fix performance. The ISM470F1 module is optimized for size and battery constrained applications.    It is based on the fast and deep search capabilities of CSR’s (http://www.csr.com) SiRFstar IVTM GSD4e platform. The modules firmware includes the SiRFInstantFix technology that minimizes the time-to-first-fix (TTFF) and SiRFaware software for optimizing the performance versus power trade-off. The SiP module is ideally suited for a broad spectrum of size and power restricted applications such as handheld consumer devices, digital cameras, asset tracking, vehicle tracking, and personal tracking for fitness and sports.

Several key features of the ISM470F1 module include the following:

  •     Compact module size: 9.5mm x 10.5mm x 2.4 mm.
  •     Integrated LNA, SAW Filter, TCXO (Optional).
  •     Cold, Warm, Hot Start Time: 35, 35, 1 Sec. respectively.
  •     Reacquisition Time: 1 second.
  •     Fast hot starts in weak signal environments.
  •     Built-in jamming detection and mitigation.
  •     48 track verification channels.
  •     Host Interfaces: UART, SPI or I2C (Default SPI).
  •     Single power supply voltage 1.8V.

For evaluation and design integration, Inventek offers the ISM470 Evaluation Board (EVB). The features of this EVB include:

  •     ISM470F1 (Flash version) GPS modules.
  •     Displays: Lat/Lon, UTC, Satellites, HDOP, Altitude, GeoID
  •     Supports SiRF Flash utility on the ISM470F1 module for upgrading to the latest firmware.
