Surface Mount GPS Module Operates in Timing Applications

Connor-Winfield introduces its Model TiMax TI125 small OEM surface mount GPS module for use in synchronization and timing applications. The module has an on-board programmable NCO oscillator that outputs a synthesized frequency up to 30 MHz that is steered by the GPS receiver. The self-survey mode of operation allows the receiver to enter a position-hold mode to allow accurate timing to be continued with only one satellite being tracked. The output frequency can achieve full PRC MTIE performance, and it can also track satellites and provide GPS synchronization in weak signal areas such as indoor applications, reducing the need for high antenna placement in many environments. The module has a small surface mount package (25 mm吗 mmࡪ mm) with a highly integrated architecture.
