SimplyWerx has extensive experience embedding Global Positioning System (GPS) modules into portable devices.
Embedded GPS modules provide location awareness to portable devices, and is suitable for applications such as asset tracking as well as applications requiring accurate time synchronizations. The type of GPS receiver chipset used depends on the required update rates, accuracy and power consumption. Embedded GPS antennas or external antennas can be employed, depending on the enclosure material, aesthetics and the required performance. Low power GPS modules are often integrated with mobile sensing systems to provide real-time location data, such as shipping container tracking and monitoring devices.
