The article informs that Trimble Navigation Ltd.'s latest miniature global positioning system (GPS) receiver, the Lassen iQ module for mobile devices is a 12-channel module which features two standard and enhanced signal sensitivity modes. With Enhanced mode enabled, the module automatically switches to higher sensitivity when satellite signals are weak. The module also supports Trimble Standard Interface Protocol (TSIP) download of critical startup information for fast acquisition. The Lassen iQ module is compatible with active 3.3 VDC antennas and a development kits includes the module mounted on an interface board in a durable metal enclosure, a magnetic mount antenna, an ultra-compact embedded antenna, an AC-DC power adapter, a serial interface cable, a cigarette lighter adapter, a reference manual, and GPS toolkit software for communication with the GPS module.
