Acal BFi has joined forces with OriginGPS to bring to market two Multi-GNSS modules: the Multi Micro Spider (ORG4033-MK04) and Multi Micro Hornet (ORG1510MK-04). These fully integrated modules boast outstanding performance, signal sensitivity and power efficiency in an ultra-small form factor.

As well as supporting GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo; the Multi Micro Spider and Multi Micro Hornet use MediaTek’s MT3333 to achieve a rapid time to first fix (TTFF) and a positioning speed of 10Hz. In addition, the Multi Micro Hornet has an integrated antenna based on OriginGPS’ patented technology.

Matthias Beuther, European Product Manager at Acal BFi said, “We are pleased to work with OriginGPS to offer these next gen multi-GNSS modules to the market. Combining this with our reference design means we can provide our customers with a fully tested, plug-and-play multi-GNSS module design, speeding up time to market.”

Gal Jacobi, CEO of OriginGPS, added: “We’re breaking new ground in what’s possible with GNSS footprints. The multi-GNSS modules will enable developers to easily improve the performance of products while shortening time to market. With their size, low power consumption and high performance, they are the perfect GPS and GNSS solution to power the location services for a range of IoT devices from wearables out on the go to a UAV tracking action sports.”
