Integrated Monolithic GPS Receiver
Provides Faster Signal Searches, Accurate Real-Time Navigation, Improved Tracking Sensitivity and Very Low Average Power Consumption
The Broadcom BCM4751 is a single-chip GPS receiver used for tracking and navigation, primarily in mobile devices. Its massively parallel, hardware correlator architecture provides faster signal searches, accurate real-time navigation, improved tracking sensitivity and very low average power consumption.
The BCM4751 integrates a number of external components that reduce the overall system cost for manufacturers and enables very small footprints when designing GPS into mobile devices. With real estate in mobile devices at a premium, a complete GPS solution, featuring the BCM4751, will use less than 30 mm² of board space, including all of the necessary components for a typical cellular phone implementation.
