Micro Modular introduces new GPS receiver module

Offers navigation information in either NMEA-0183 or SiRF binary protocol

By CBR Staff Writer

Micro Modular Technologies has rolled out the MN5515HS, a GPS receiver module with signal sensitivity. The new module is based on the SiRFstarIII GPS receiver chipset and offers ‘cold-start’ acquisition sensitivity.

According to the company, the new module features a Real-time Clock (RTC) circuit and crystal, internal RESET circuit, TCXO, and RF and baseband processing. The new module requires a single 3.3 volt power supply, and consumes up to 80mW in operation.

The new module requires DC power and a GPS signal. It produces the navigation information in either NMEA-0183 or SiRF binary protocol. The RoHS compliant module is available in tube or tape and reel.

Apart from the new module, an evaluation kit is also available – the MN5515HS-EVK – which is said to allow the connection of the GPS receiver module to a PC via USB interface and includes test software for real-world performance evaluation.

Larry Cleland, VP of sales and marketing at Micro Modular, said: The increased acquisition sensitivity ensures operation in environments with extremely low level GPS signals. Acquisition sensitivity is a much more important measure of real-world performance of a GPS receiver than tracking sensitivity.
