Linx's FM Series GPS Receiver Module Brings
High Position Accuracy in Small Packages
October 30, 2013
— Linx Technologies announces its launch of the self-contained, high-performance
FM Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver modules. At just 15 mm by 13 mm in
size, the MediaTek MT3339-based FM Series gives the module fast lock times and high position
accuracy even at low signal levels. Its very low power consumption helps maximize runtimes in
battery powered applications, such as positioning and navigation, location tracking, marine,
and asset management.
Using the built-in MediaTek MT3339 chipset, the FM module can simultaneously
acquire on 66 channels and track on up to 22 channels, providing standard NMEA data messages
through a UART interface. A simple serial command set can be used to configure optional features.
GPS receiver is completely self-contained and only requires an antenna. It powers up and outputs
position data without any software set-up or configuration. As a result, the FM Series is easy
With built-in hybrid ephemeris prediction technology, the FM Series predicts
satellite positions for up to 3 days and delivers start times of less than 15 seconds under
In addition, the available GPS Master Development System connects a
FM Series Evaluation Module to a prototyping board with a color display that shows coordinates,
speedometer and compass for mobile evaluation. A USB interface allows simple viewing of satellite
data and Internet mapping, as well as custom software application development.
