USA: According to a recent news, CSR SiRFstarV 5e’s first implementation come to a Telit module. The engine is optimised for devices such as mobile phones, cameras, and health and fitness products.
As in news, this GNSS chipset include several new features relating to time-to-first-fix (TTFF) and power optimization. With InstantFix Extended Ephemeris (EE), devices without wireless connectivity, such as cameras, are able to overcome slow time to first fix, a common annoyance for the end user. 5e is capable of autonomously forward predicting EE for three days locally, and for connected devices the solution supports server based EE for up to 31 day for GPS and up to 14 day GLONASS EE.
The GNSS chip can connect directly to a Lithium battery supply, enabling system cost reduction and increased power efficiency. This is implemented by an integrated switched PMU, reducing system level power and eBOM costs.
As per the source, the chipset will be used for location positioning by Telit for its Jupiter SE868-V2 module.
Felix Marchal, Chief Product Officer at Telit Wireless Solutions, said: “The Jupiter SE868-V2 excels in all positioning tasks and foremost in applications requiring high reliability navigation. By using CSR’s SiRFstarV 5e solution, we have been able to create a quick and convenient upgrade path for our Jupiter JF2 GPS module customers to the latest and most robust multi-constellation support available in the market.”
