Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX2769, a universal, single-chip global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver for GPS (L1 C/A code and P-code), Galileo, and GLONASS navigation satellite systems. Due to integration of a complete receiver chain, including an LNA, this receiver eliminates the need for an external LNA and achieves a total cascaded noise figure (NF) of 1.4dB. The device is suitable for a wide range of applications including automotive navigation, asset tracking, cellular handsets, portable navigation devices (PNDs), digital cameras, laptops, and ultra-mobile personal computers (UMPCs). The device is specified for operation over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range, and it is packaged in a compact, 5 mm × 5 mm, 28-pin TQFN with an exposed paddle; a tested die version is also available. Prices start at $2.95.
