Linx GPS/GNSS Receiver Modules, Development Kits, & Evaluation Modules
Linx GPS and GNSS receiver modules are self-contained, high-performance, Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS) receivers designed for navigation, tracking, and positioning applications. Based on the MediaTek chipset, these modules can simultaneously acquire and track multiple satellite constellations or channels with high position accuracy even at low signal levels. Housed in compact reflow-compatible SMD packages, these GPS/GNSS receivers require no programming or additional RF components (except antennas) to form complete GPS/GNSS solutions. These receiver modules are easy to integrate, even for engineers without previous GPS or GNSS experience. The Linx GPS and GNSS Receiver Master Development Kit enables designers to rapidly develop hardware and software based on the GPS or GNSS receiver modules. Additionally, the Linx GPS and GNSS receiver evaluation module combines the surface mount GPS and GNSS modules, SMA connectors, and ferrite beads on a single board with through-hole headers making prototyping with the GPS and GNSS modules simple.
Linx GM/TM GNSS Receiver Modules
Linx GM/TM GNSS receiver modules are self-contained, high-performance, Global Satellite Navigation System receivers designed for navigation, tracking, and positioning applications. Based on the MediaTek chipset, these modules can simultaneously acquire and track multiple satellite constellations. These include the United States GPS system, Europe’s GALILEO, Russia’s GLONASS and Japan’s QZSS. These receivers provide exceptional sensitivity, even in dense foliage and urban canyons. The modules have built-in receiver duty cycling that can be configured to periodically turn off the module for further power savings. Hybrid ephemeris prediction can be used to achieve cold start times of less than 15 seconds. The GM/TM GNSS receiver modules UART serial interface is used to send and receive NMEA messages in ASCII format. A simple serial command set can be used to configure optional features. Housed in a tiny reflow-compatible SMD package, the GNSS receiver modules requires no programming or additional RF components (except an antenna) to form a complete GNSS solution. This makes the Linx GM/TM GNSS receiver modules easy to integrate, even by engineers without previous RF or GNSS experience.
