TAINAN -- GlobalTop Technology has launched FireFly X1, the smallest MediaTek-based Multi-GNSS module in the world. With an ultra-compact size of 9.0 x 9.5 x 2.1 mm, it's one of the smallest Multi-GNSS modules in the industry.
"Compact size and low-power consumption will be the key selling points for the next generation of M2M devices. After a comprehensive market study, we found that small size was one of the most important factors for companies when it comes to GNSS module selection. Other key factors included power consumption, TTFF, positioning accuracy, additional interfaces as well as quality and longevity of the module. I am proud to say that FireFly X1 delivers perfectly on all these criteria", said Sam Khan, Vice CEO of GlobalTop Technology. He added, "FireFly X1 is designed with sophisticated engineering and an entirely new set of ultra-compact quality components to reach this miniature size, while adding more features and interfaces at the same time. It uses the latest MT3333 engine with full support for GPS, QZSS, Glonass, Beidou and is also Galileo ready. "
Tracking of up to two constellations simultaneously, and relying on the latest MediaTek firmware, FireFly X1 can provide superior positioning accuracy of up to 1.8 m CEP. Enabling EASYTM (self-generated orbit prediction), AGPS (ephemeris file injection), and SBAS further enhances position accuracy signiﬁcantly.
Unlike other compact GNSS modules, despite its smaller size, FireFly X1 incorporates a complete set of high-quality components, including TCXO, RTC Crystal, SMPS, SAW Filter and an additional LNA to provide the most reliable performance.
The FireFly X1's miniature size with ﬂexible multi-interface connectivity options like SPI and I²C can simplify a user's design, and it is ideal for M2M devices relying on low-cost MCUs that offer limited serial interfaces.
GlobalTop's industry leading free customization service further expands the capability of FireFly X1 with unique features such as custom NMEA output sentence, distance calculation, geofencing, magnetic variation and last- position-retention, etc. Advanced users can also customize the basic parameters of the module, including baud-rate, update-rate, internal logger settings, DGPS mode, 3D Fix, 1 PPS, and many more.
All modules are produced at GlobalTop's in-house ISO 9001:2008 certiﬁed manufacturing facility, with 100% unit testing and complete quality control, allowing for a consistent annual yield rate of 99.98%.
With the smallest size, outstanding RF sensitivity and performance, and best-in-class feature-set, the FireFly X1 is an unbeatable choice for any GNSS positioning application.
Samples and Evaluation Kits for FireFly X1 are now available. Please contact GlobalTop Technology for more information.
