Ultra Low Power GPS Technologies
Baseband Technologies specializes in advanced ultra low power GPS receiver technologies for high volume and low cost consumer electronics. Our company has developed technologies that enable consumer electronics manufacturers to implement GPS functions quickly and easily into anything that moves. Combining two patent pending technologies, our battery-friendly GPS receiver uses hundreds of times less power than GPS chipsets. It has near-zero impact on the battery life.
The wearable/IoT markets are growing exponentially with GPS being the most requested feature. There are significant opportunities for those who can implement GPS without impacting the battery life. For applications that require the lowest possible power consumption which typical GPS chipsets cannot deliver, our Snapshot Receiver is ideal. The advantage of our snapshot GPS receiver technology is its ability to capture a GPS position using as little as 2 milliseconds (ms), which greatly increases the battery life of today's portable consumer electronics. When power supply is limited such as using only a small coin cell battery, our snapshot receiver could potentially run for months or even years without requiring a recharge or replacement.
For applications that already use a GPS chipset design, our 28 Day Extended Ephemeris service is ideal. The advantage of our 28 Day Extended Ephemeris service is its ability to shorten the time-to-first-fix (TTFF) of any GPS chipset from 30-60 seconds to 1-2 seconds regardless of the environment, which greatly improves the user experience while increasing the battery life of the electronics.
Since every customer is unique and their requirements are different, in addition to offering standard products, we also offer Custom Design and Consulting services to come up with a solution that suits your unique product requirements.
Our website is primarily designed to showcase our products and services but our other goal is to become a trusted source for ultra low power GPS receiver technologies, trends and applications.
