Wi2Wi, Inc. (Wi2Wi) has introduced a new enhanced W2SG0006 GPS Module. The new W2SG0006 is a complete systems solution based on CSR/SiRF Technologies SiRFStar III LPx architecture. The new W2SG0006 is designed particularly for embedded products like personal navigation devices, mobile internet devices (MID), ultra-mobile (UMPC) and PCs, automotive aftermarket GPS systems and other medical, industrial, and defense systems that feature GPS capability.

The new module’s low operating current of only 30 milli-amps, ultra-fast Time-To-First-Fix, internal battery back-up RAM for position memory, small form factor, and high receive sensitivity make it perfectly suited for such applications. As a total radio receiver solution needing minimal external components, it enables quick and easy integration into most applications.

Key features of the W2SG0006:

Compact Surface Mount Design (SMD) for easy integration: 15mm x 15mm x 2.5mm;

Fast acquisition time and high sensitivity GPS Receiver;

Ultra-low power consumption;

50O Antenna launch enables use of either active or passive antenna;

20 channel GPS receiver;

Multi-path Mitigation;

Uses NAVSTAR GPS L1 C/A signal;

SBAS (WAAS, ENGOS and MSAS) support;

Single 3.3 VDC supply input;

Two Configurable UART Interfaces;

Available Software accelerator for enhanced sensitivity: Satellite acquisition and tracking;

Format Selectable Output Data: NMEA, SiRFBinary and AI3/F;

Compatible with SiRF Technologies GSW3 Software;

Restriction of hazardous substances compliant.

The W2SG0006 device is supported with Test/Evaluation Boards, which are in full production and commercially available.

Reza Ahy, chief executive officer of Wi2Wi said that, the W2SG0006 offers the enhanced performance feature set required by GPS applications along with ease of integration and development support. Our GPS products together with our WiFi, and WiFi-Bluetooth SiPs provide a comprehensive embedded wireless solution for the markets of MIDs, UMPCs, PNDs, industrial, medical and defense applications.

Wi2Wi is a US-based provider of integrated, small form factor, multifunction wireless sub-systems.
