u-blox Introduces its Smallest GPS Module: LEA-LA
THALWIL, Switzerland (ots) - u-blox AG today announced the availability of LEA-LA, the company's smallest GPS receiver module. Measuring only 17 x 22 mm, it is a 40% reduction of the TIM product family without compromising performance and functionality. The high manufacturing quality and the separate shielding of the RF and digital parts provide optimum immunity against electromagnetic interferences, high sensitivity and robust operation.
The LEA-LA is powered by the 16-channel, low-power ANTARIS® chipset and shows superior performance in any static and dynamic environments, particularly in the most challenging metropolitan areas. ANTARIS features advanced WAAS / EGNOS support, excellent acquisition performance with 34 s cold start time, and efficient multi-path suppression. The low power consumption (135 mW) and the FixNOW power-saving mode make the LEA-LA attractive for small devices with stringent space and power requirements.
"Today, the existing TIM modules have become the de-facto global standard for machine-solderable GPS receivers," said u-blox CEO Thomas Seiler. "With LEA-LA, the next step in miniaturization, we are creating a new global standard which enables new market opportunities. We continue committing to providing best-in-class performance, reliability, customer orientation and high product quality."
The LEA-LA is now available for ordering.
