Infineon debuts new GPS front-end
This week Infineon Technologies introduced a new GPS Receive Front-End Module (BGM681L11), that the German semiconductor company claims to be the “world’s smallest”. It includes all key components to amplify a GPS signal and filter out interference in a module occupying just 3.75 mm³, which is said to be “more than 60 percent smaller than the closest competitor product”.

The BGM681L11 GPS Receive Front-End Module is already available in high-volume quantities, pricing of the BGM681L11 starts at a 10,000-piece price of $1.20.

"With the GPS receive front-end module BGM681L11 Infineon complements its broad range of high-performance GPS LNAs by providing fully integrated receive front-end components," said Michael Mauer, Senior Marketing Director Silicon Discretes at Infineon Technologies. "By making use of our recently announced SiGe:C-LNAs capable of 1.8 V operation and CMOS RF-Switches, Infineon is further expanding its product portfolio of GPS modules and underlining its leading position in the GPS market."
