Infineon claims smallest GPS front end module

22 Oct 2008

Infineon Technologies' BGM681L11 GPS front-end module takes up just 3.75 cubic millimeters, more than 60 percent smaller than the next closest competitor product, according to the chipmaker.

The GPS Receive Front-End Module BGM681L11 is shipped in a lead-free package (TSLP11-1) measuring 2.5 x 2.5 x 0.6 millimeters.

It incorporates Infineon's GPS low-noise amplifier (LNA) chip and two integrated filters, an input and output filter, each with high electrostatic discharge ruggedness, Infineon said.

The GPS LNA chip is also available as a stand-alone device, BGA615L7, based on silicon germanium (SiGe) process technology.

Infineon has shipped more than 70 million units of this LNA to the GPS market, according to the company.

The BGM681L11 is available in high-volume quantities; pricing starts at a 10,000-piece price of $1.20. Infineon also provides evaluation kits.
