The Lassen IQ module adds complete GPS functionality to your mobile product in a postage stamp-sized footprint with ultra-low power consumption. The Lassen IQ is designed for portable handheld, battery-powered applications such as cell phones, pagers, PDAs, digital cameras, and many others. Using Trimble breakthrough FirstGPS architecture, the module delivers complete position, velocity and time (PVT) solutions for use in the host application. The Lassen IQ module uses minimal power and space and delivers a robust, reliable PVT solution.The Lassen IQ module is the only stamp-sized GPS product with the two most popular standard protocols: TSIP (Trimble Standard Interface Protocol) and NMEA 0183. The module is enclosed within a metal shield for ease of handling. The shield acts as a protective case.
The FirstGPS architecture consists primarily of two integrated circuits and FirstGPS firmware. This technology enables the Lassen IQ to achieve the unique combination of both ultra-low power usage and micro-size in the same unit.
