Atmel rolls out automotive GPS chips

29 Oct 2008

Atmel has rolled out two automotive-grade GPS chips, the ATR0630P1 and ATR0635P1, based on the company's existing GPS chips.

The devices, measuring 7 x 10 millimeters, incorporate a complete GPS receiver and meet the AEC-Q100 automotive quality standard, according to Atmel.

The GPS chips could be used in in-vehicle navigation systems, telematics, fleet management, dynamic car insurance fee systems (pay-as-you-drive), and after-market navigation products.

The P1 versions of the ATR0630 and ATR0635 devices feature maximum chipset integration and includes up to 45 percent reduction in footprint, Atmel said.

The ATR0635P1's -158 dBm sensitivity also allows weak-signal acquisition and tracking in urban canyons, the company added.

Samples of the automotive-grade GPS receiver chips are available in small-outline, 96-pin ball grid array packages. Pricing starts at $13 for the ATR0630P1 and $15 for the ATR0635P1 for 10,000-piece quantities each.

A complete evaluation kit, including ultra-small footprint sample designs, is also available, Atmel said.
