The A5100-A is ideal for a wide range of applications including wearable devices, cameras and automotive trackers.
The A5100-A is the first release within Maestro's new line of GNSS receivers. It achieves unprecedented accuracy with quad-constellation support, up to 30 per cent faster Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF), and up to 20 per cent lower power consumption using CSR's TricklePowerTM and Push-to-Fix (PtF) modes.
The module also accelerates customer time to market and reduces development risks by integrating a number of features including, TCXO, SAW filter, RTC, antenna control mechanism, and flash memory for future-proof upgrades, as well as, offering a drop-in replacement capability for Maestro's previous SiRFstar4 generation modules. The castellated edge form factor also enables simpler manufacturing and reduces assembly cost.
'Maestro Wireless has worked closely with CSR for many years to design and commercialise highly accurate and reliable location products,' said
Supporting all currently deployed GNSS, the A5100-A acquires and tracks all visible GPS, GLONASS, QZSS, and SBAS satellites. Concurrent GNSS performance enables the A5100-A to choose the best satellites from different constellations and deliver optimal location information.
Immediate benefits are better coverage, enhanced stability and accuracy in difficult environments, such as urban canyons, and stronger resilience to multipath and signal jamming. This ensures consumers maintain a position fix whether they're in the middle of a busy city or in a remote rural location.
'The A5100-A is perfect for customers designing highly integrated products that need uncompromising performance but are pressured by the speed required to go-to market and lack of development resources,' said
The A5100-A offers a range of other valuable features including:
Direct to Battery connectivity: Connects directly to a rechargeable 1.8V-3.6V Lithium battery enabling system cost reduction and increased power efficiency.
InstantFixTM Extended Ephemeris (EE): Accelerates TTFF for devices without internet connectivity such as cameras and wearable devices, by autonomously predicting EE for as long as three days and up to 31 days when connected to a network that supports SiRFInstantFixTM server generated extended ephemeris data (SGEE).
