|Inventek Systems has developed a dual UART GPS with SiRF binary outputting position, velocity and time at 5 times per second without interpolation.
This compact 18 mm x 18 mm GPS module offers real time GPS updates and has been designed for high-velocity, high acceleration applications. Based on the SiRFstarIII architecture, this module is ideal for OEM customers who need quick response on very dynamic conditions such as auto/motorcycle racing, and sports.
Inventek Systems’ officials explain that the ISM300F2-C5 can be used to navigate urban canyons, as well as wide open spaces. The company claims that the TTFF (time-to-first-fix) under open sky is just 35 seconds from a cold start, and 1 second from a hot start. Also, the reacquisition time is only 1 second.
Elaborating on the ISM300F2-V5, the company says that the product helps in design and manufacturing. This lead-free product features a unique surface mount technology (SMT), which enables fully automatic assembly and reflow soldering. Complying with the European Union's RoHS (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances) directive, the ISM300F2-V5 has an EMI/EMC (News - Alert) shield that not only lets it meet FCC/CE standards, but also assures peak performance in noisy environments.
Also, the ISM300F2-C5 provides two UARTs (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter) for quick-and-easy I/O, and supports both NMEA-0183 and SiRF binary.
The company is offering the ISM300F2-C5-V0005 for $29.95 in 100 piece quantities which can be ordered online.
