Allystar Technology Co. Ltd., headquartered in Shenzhen, China, has announced a multi-band multi-GNSS single chip. The new generation GNSS chipset is based on the Cynosure III architecture integrating multi-band multi-system GNSS RF and baseband.
A multi-band, multi-system SoC, it is capable of tracking all global civil navigation systems (GPS, BeiDou, Galileo, GLONASS, IRNSS, QZSS and SBAS) in all bands (L1, L2, L5, L6), including the latest BeiDou-3 signal, B2a and B3I.
The P/N HD8040 series which is based on RF mode A supports L5/B2a/E5a signals, which are expected to have lower noise and be better in multipath mitigation mainly due to the higher chipping rate of L5 signals relative to L1 C/A code. Featuring the small size WLCSP package (3mm x 3mm) and low power consumption, the HD8040 series is suitable for smartphones, tablets and other portable devices.
The P/N HD9310 comes with built-in support for standard RTCM Protocol (MSM), supporting multi-band multi-system high-precision raw data output, including pseudorange, phase range, Doppler, SNR for any kind of third party integration and application. It is designed to be suitable for high-precision applications such as vehicle management, car navigation, GIS data collection, precision agriculture, engineering survey and other fields.
In terms of manufacturing processes, it adopts a 40nm process and incorporates a variety of advanced low-power design technologies, making it attractive in terms of power consumption.
The chip comes in three packages, 3.0mm x 3.0mm(CSP), 5.0mm x 5.0mm(QFN), and 7.0mm x 7.0mm(BGA). Allystar says customer samples of the HD8040 series and HD9310 are now available.
