MAXREFDESGPS_B

Reference Design Disclaimer See the  Important Notice and Disclaimer  covering reference designs and other Maxim resources.

Description

The GPS reference design is an evaluation kit designed to demonstrate the essential features of an ultra-low power GPS (global positioning system) receiver, as well as serving as a reference design to illustrate how to implement such a receiver rapidly. The reference design uses the MAX2769C L1-band GNSS RF front end IC (RFIC) from Maxim Integrated, and the ultra-low power GPS baseband processing firmware provided by Baseband Technologies Inc. (BTI) that runs on a MAX32632 microcontroller unit (MCU).
