Small multi-GNSS module updates sports action
A family of products, beginning with this Multi Micro Hornet (ORG1510-MK) module combines a MediaTek chip with OriginGPS’ proprietary Noise Free Zone NFZ technology, to create small action sports cameras and wearable devices.
According to OriginGPS, it is the world’s smallest, fully integrated, multi-GNSS (GPS, Glonass and BeiDou) module. The low-power architecture supports an update rate of up to 10Hz and contains onboard flash, making it suitable for use as a GNSS component for devices that require small footprints, such as UAVs designed to follow action sports and other fast-moving activities, or wearable products.
The module contains the MediaTek MT3333 chip, claimed to support the fastest update position calculation rate, as well as an-onboard flash memory that does not erase when power is off. Standby and backup modes ensure it consumes very little power, says the company, and, in advanced applications, a periodic mode can turn the device on and off when in backup or standby.
The module measures just 10 x 10 x 6.1mm yet achieves rapid Time To First Fix of less than one second, accuracy within as little as 1m, and sensitivity at an industry leading -165dBm two constellations simultaneously, claims the company.
The Hornet family of GPS / GNSS antenna modules integrates a GNSS receiver and patch antenna in a single module. The ORG1510-MK is pin-to-pin compatibility with the Micro and Nano Hornet modules ensures a seamless migration from GPS to GNSS. Developers can simply connect the module to a power source on a single layer PCB to begin integrating it into designs.
The module also combines OriginGPS’ proprietary low-profile GNSS antenna with a dual-stage LNA, RF LDO, SAW filter, TCXO, RTC crystal and RF shield.
