USA: Telit Wireless Solutions has launched “Jupiter SE880,” GPS miniature receiver based on 3D embedded technology. Jupiter SE880 ultra-compact GPS receiver module is designed for applications in the commercial, industrial, and consumer segments including wearable and handheld devices.
The miniature 4.7×4.7mm LGA (Land Grid Array),SiRFstarIV based receiver module comes with all dimensions for regular or size-constrained GPS applications. The SE880 receiver module is said to quicken Time-to-Market and for device integrators.
Jupiter SE880 is a single-constellation GPS product enhanced for maximum sensitivity which makes it capable of class-unique achievements such as a one-satellite acquisition of UTC (typically 4 are required); fix acquisition with minimal sky-visibility – indoors, garages, urban canyons, etc.; and much lower TTFF under standard operating conditions (as much as 200 seconds quicker from cold start).
Dominikus Hierl, chief marketing officer at Telit Wireless Solutions, said: “The Jupiter SE880 keeps with Telit’s tradition of leading the industry in miniaturization – following in the footsteps of the most recent such record – the HE910, still the world’s smallest 7-band HSPA+ module. Taking up less than 40mm² the footprint makes it the best GNSS platform for high-volume ultra-compact mobile/tracking applications and advanced consumer devices such as sports watches, cameras, tablets and others, where the SE880 becomes the only solution delivering stellar specifications from such a small package.”
