A high-sensitivity low-power SMD-type 12-channel GPS receiver designed for a broad spectrum of OEM applications, and its associated evaluation kit, are now available from Digi-Key following a worldwide distribution agreement with GPS specialist, DeLorme.
The GPS2056-10 module contains everything needed to integrate the GPS receiver into a system and achieve fast time to market – just add an antenna, power source, and host connection. The GPS2056 evaluation kit can be used for product evaluation and testing, development, as a reference design, or a complete navigation system. These products, stocked by Digi-Key, are featured in its print and online catalogues and are available for purchase directly from Digi-Key.
“We are very excited to add these innovative products from DeLorme to our product repertoire,” said Digi-Key president, Mark Larson. “The products stocked by Digi-Key provide an easy way for design engineers to integrate GPS into products, and for that reason, we are certain that they will be of consequential interest and appeal to customers everywhere.”
Brian Stearns, product manager for GPS Modules at DeLorme, said: “For DeLorme, this distribution agreement is a major step forward in the advancement of the company’s OEM GPS Module program. Our partnership with Digi-Key is an important element of our strategy to bring new OEM GPS products to market. Digi-Key plays an essential role for our customers when they need support for both small quantity and full volume production release.”More news from Digikey
