Technical Note

The UBX‑G6010‑ST is u‑blox’ standard grade GPS chip featuring the high performance u‑blox 6 position engine. The UBX‑G6010‑ST provides even better sensitivity and acquisition times while requiring no external host. Sophisticated RF‑architecture and interference suppression ensure maximum performance even in GPS‑hostile environments. u‑blox 6 has been designed with low power consumption and low cost in mind. Intelligent power management is a breakthrough for low‑power applications. The minimal eBoM requires as few as 16 passive components, an LDO and LNA are integrated and costly external memory is not needed. Lower price GPS crystals as well as TCXOs are supported, and 2‑layer PCB integration capability and small footprint ensure further cost savings. The UBX‑G6010‑ST is the ideal GPS chip solution for cost sensitive, high‑volume applications.
