GNSS module maker OriginGPS has launched the new Multi Micro Spider, which has a fully integrated and highly sensitive multi-GNSS module, with support for GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo.

The Multi Micro Spider is designed for applications that require quick movement, minimal power consumption and ultra-small form factors, such as wearables and drones.

Like its predecessor, the Multi Micro Hornet (ORG1510-MK), the Multi Micro Spider’s (ORG4033) module utilizes MediaTek’s MT3333 chip and its onboard flash memory to achieve a rapid update rate and positioning speed of up to 10 Hz.

“With the Multi Micro Spider, we’re breaking new ground in what’s possible with GNSS footprints,” said Gal Jacobi, CEO of OriginGPS. “It’s a plug-and-play solution that will enable developers to easily improve performance of products while shortening time to market. Because of its size, low power consumption and high performance, the Multi Micro Spider is the perfect GPS and GNSS solution to power the location services for a wearable out on the go to a UAV tracking action sports.”

Key features include:

  • Peak performance with ultra-small size — At just 5.6 mm x 5.6 mm, with a height of 2.65 mm, the Multi Micro Spider packs in a sub-one second Time To First Fix (TTFF) and sensitivity of -165 dBm for two simultaneous constellations. All of this achieved using less than 9 mW of power.
  • OriginGPS’ Noise Free Zone (NFZ) — The ORG4033 utilizes OriginGPS’ patented and proprietary NFZ technology for continued noise immunity and razor-sharp sensitivity even in poor signal conditions.
  • Onboard flash for market-leading update rate — With an onboard flash memory and an update rate of up to 10Hz, the Multi Micro Spider breaks the market’s standard update rate benchmark of 5 Hz for positioning, accurate to within 2.5 meters.
  • Intuitive design that facilitates shorter time to market — The Multi Micro Spider makes use of a developer-friendly design that allows for seamless migration from GPS to GNSS pin-to-pin compatibility. This both reduces overall development costs for new products and shortens their time to market.
  • Easy integration with OriginGPS’ miniature GNSS antenna solutions — The Multi Micro Spider can be easily integrated with the ORG12-4T-GNSS miniature patch antenna to get the best performance out of a compact form-factor.
