Stellus System, Inc. has announced the SSI-SDIO-1000, a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver with a SDIO (Secure Digital Input/Output) interface designed for consumer-level applications. The design enables mobile devices, such as Smartphones and connected PDAs, to receive GPS signals and, together with off-the-shelf GPS mapping software, transforms them into navigational receivers.
Stellus SDIO GPS combines a high-performance GPS antenna and receiver, with a SDIO interface IC (integrated circuit), in a compact housing that fits in a briefcase or pocket, and weighs less than one ounce. The SSI-SDIO-1000 consumes less than 200 mW in tracking mode and has an accuracy of 3 meters (CEP – 50% of the time) and 6 meters (2DRMS – 95% of the time). In addition, it is compatible with both Pocket PC and Palm OS based operating systems.
