11 x 11 x 2.25 mm Module Combines Low Power and High Sensitivity at a Competitive Price

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Navman Wireless OEM Solutions, a leading designer and manufacturer of world-class Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, today announced the availability of its new Jupiter3 Ultra-Small GPS Receiver Module, the company’s smallest GPS module and the basis of its next generation of GPS receiver solutions. The low-cost Jupiter3 delivers not only the best of current GPS technologies, but also greater flexibility for manufacturers to design smaller, more efficient and cost-effective products containing GPS capability.

Navman Wireless’ Jupiter3, is expected to eventually provide the core for all future Jupiter modules. Its low power consumption (11.5mA ATP), high sensitivity (-159dBm) and low cost is an unbeatable combination for vehicle, object and even personal positioning products.

“The Jupiter3 is a breakthrough for both Navman Wireless and the GPS industry,” said George Arnott, VP Global OEM Solutions. “With price and functionality demands increasing, OEMs are looking for smaller, more efficient and adaptable GPS capability. The Jupiter3 delivers on all these requirements.”

Key to the versatility of the Jupiter3 is its support for existing voltage regulation, supervisory circuit and real-time clock functions on products in which it is incorporated. Such support economizes on space and cost, leaving the Jupiter3 to provide essential GPS components such as TCXO, LNA and SAW filter.

The Jupiter3 features a 20-channel receiver offering 200,000 effective correlators for maximum GPS accuracy in both aided and autonomous modes. At just 11 x 11 x 2.2mm, its small form factor is suitable for even the smallest consumer or commercial devices. The module also offers the same Firmware as Navman Wireless’ current Jupiter products, ensuring a smooth and risk-free upgrade path.

The Jupiter3 has been successfully tested by lead customers for reliability and is available in sample quantities.
