AMY‑6M is the world’s smallest standalone GPS SiP dedicated to consumer applications. It has been specifically developed to provide basic GPS functionality required by highvolume, portable products. It is a fully integrated, autonomous GPS solution requiring no host integration resulting in fast time‑to‑market. AMY‑6M offers four different serial interfaces. This SiP features an integrated GPS crystal, providing fast acquisition and excellent tracking performance at a competitive price. In addition, AMY‑6M can be assembled on a 2‑layer PCB, which saves production costs. AMY‑6M is so small that it can be integrated into the smallest portable devices. Advanced interference suppression mechanisms and innovative RF architecture ensure maximum performance even in hostile signal environments.
