A compact Multi-GNSS Patch module has been announced by GlobalTop Technology. The Titan X1 was especially designed for applications where small footprint, ease-of-integration and flexible interface options are essential in addition to robust positioning performance. With a compact size of 12.5x12.5mm, Titan X1 is one of the smallest embedded patch antenna GNSS modules based on Mediatek’s MT3333 chipset.
It features a specially tuned (12x12mm) GPS+Glonass Patch Antenna that offers what it claims to be unparalleled performance for a module this size.
Titan X1 offers a fully integrated design as standard, with a complete set of components including TCXO, RTC Crystal, SMPS, SAW Filter and an additional LNA; all considered vital for optimum performance. Titan X1’s introduces multi-interface support (UART, I2C and SPI), and includes external antenna detection circuit with interface so users don’t have to choose between compact size and advanced features.
“We understand the growing need for ultra-small positioning modules, especially those with embedded antennas. But we don’t believe in compromising essential components and functions for the sake of a smaller size. With Titan X1 we show our commitment to making ultra-compact modules that lack nothing in terms of interfaces and functions compared to their larger counterparts. IOT devices are getting smaller but more complex with most devices featuring a wide array of sensors and connectivity modules. Being just a receiver radio, we believe that integrating a positioning module to an IOT device should be the easiest part of the development and Titan X1 is perfect for that," said Sam Khan, Vice CEO, GlobalTop Technology.
