Acal BFi first to sample the smallest complete GPS receiver

The integration of a SiRFstarIV GPS processor enables the ORG1410 to operate in challenging GPS environments, such as indoor tracking or when the end-user is on the move. This high level of GPS performance is achieved by using innovative GPS firmware which can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals, and opportunistically update its internal parameters which enables the ORG1410 to deliver near-continuous navigation.

Within its 10mm x 10mm package, the ORG1410 integrates an active antenna; RF shield; TCXO and RTC crystal; LNA and SAW filters; and UART, SPI or I2C host interfaces; whilst achieving ultra-low power consumption of less than 15mW; a fast position fix of under 1 second and sensitivity of ‐163dBm.

“As the only pan-European partner for OriginGPS, Acal BFi is able to offer the first samples and development kits for this product. Our position allows us to support customers, throughout Europe, with a level of product knowledge, in addition to design support and manufacturing services which will allow customers to push their products’ GPS capabilities to new levels,” said Philippe Gruson, Electronics Division President Acal BFi. 

A limited number of ORG1410 samples, in addition to development kits for lead customers, are available immediately from Acal BFi.
