The UBX-G6010-SA and UBX-G6000-BA / G0010-QA automotive grade GPS chips from u‑blox meet the quality and reliability demands of automotive applications. The dedicated manufacturing process addresses automotive customers’ expectations for continuous support and operation over a long product life cycle. u‑blox 6 has been designed with low power consumption and low costs in mind. Intelligent power management is a breakthrough for low-power applications. The minimal BoM 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-SA is the ideal GPS chip solution for cost and space sensitive automotive applications, while the UBX-G6000-BA / G0010–QA supports external memory for firmware updates.
