LEADTEK, represented by Caelera , has released its GPS-9543 module for OEM designers.
This extremely small GPS module is perfect for integration into a range of applications where reliable positional and/or timing information is required. Leadtek's modules are based on GPS semiconductor technology from SiRF, a leader in the GPS chip development field.
The GPS-9543 is only 36mm x 24mm in size, and offers 12-channel "All-In-View" tracking. The SiRFstar II ARM-based processor on which the module is based supports standard NMEA-0183 and SiRF binary protocols, with rapid cold/warm/hot start times of 45/38/8 seconds respectively.
Reacquisition time is 0.1 seconds and the GPS-9543 also provides a highly accurate 1PPS aligned with GPS timing. To save power, the GPS-9543 supports trickle power modes, making it suitable for battery-powered applications.
Leadtek offers a complete evaluation system with Windows-based software to developers to speed product development.
