New multi receiver module requires no external components, boasts built-in Flash memory – ideal for smart watches, fitness trackers, logistics and navigation.

Langen, October 30th 2018 – Fujitsu Electronics Europe (FEEU) is expanding its ultra-low power portfolio to include a multi-receiver GNSS module: MSB1054. GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System and now encompasses a variety of systems: not only GPS but also GLONASS, QZSS, SBAS, Galileo and BeiDou. The ability to receive signals from several satellite systems significantly reduces the TTFF (Time to First Fix), meaning a faster and more accurate positioning.

Beside the GNSS device itself the MSB1054 provides a built-in RF-front end (SAW filter, LNA) as well as a TCXO, so with the exception of an antenna no external component is required. Furthermore, Fujitsu’s GNSS module is equipped with a built-in Flash memory for quick “hot start”, to save the navigation data and further optimize its performance.

With its super-small dimensions of 5.8x6.2x1 mm, and only 3.4mA current in low-power mode (tracking, e.g. Period 60s), the MSB1054 is ideal for a variety of applications such as smart watches, fitness trackers, logistics (asset tracking and monitoring), indoor or outdoor navigation.

Various synergies arise between this module and FEEU's existing portfolio, as the Value Added Distribution Partner already offers a wide range of components and services that support the development of low-power and IoT solutions. Prominent examples include FRAM as well as Ambiq Micro's MCUs, RTCs, BLE and energy harvesting solutions.
