Eindhoven, NetherlandsNXP Semiconductors has introduced its first single-chip, Assisted-GPS (A-GPS) product, designed for use in both mobile phones and standalone personal navigation devices (PNDs).
The NXP GNS7560 is implemented using a 90-nm architecture and features a high performance CMOS RF front end plus correlator engine to reduce system cost and power. Advanced power management modes reduce power consumption to less than 13mW for one-second map updates. With a package size of less than 9 mm², the GNS7560 is one of the smallest GPS chips available, and when integrated with NXP's Cellular System Solution 7210, provides a small overall solution.
The GPS single-chip solution can be combined with NXP's Nexperia UMTS/EDGE Cellular System Solution 7210, to support a broad set of multimedia applications and connectivity options for 2G and 3G mobile handsets.
