GNSS Location Hub Microcontroller with Integrated GNSS

Currently Viewing:

The BCM47748 GNSS location hub adds location and context awareness capabilities to
wearable and Internet of Things devices.
 The BCM47748 has embedded GNSS software (measurement engine and position engine) and, therefore, does not require an external host for the position computation; it outputs position, velocity, and time (PVT, computed on-chip). This is a key requirement for small RTOS-based wearable and IoT devices, and the main differentiating factor of the BCM47748.


  • PVT computed on-chip with integrated GNSS receiver (GPS and GLONASS)
  • Accelerometer inputs to produce stable, accurate and low power speed and distance
  • Context engine and adaptive firmware for lowest power consumption (5mA)
  • Geofencing and lifelogging capabilities
  • Embedded processor with self-boot capability and large on-chip memory
  • 70 ball WLBGA package with 0.4mm ball pitch


  • GPS
  • Location-based Services
  • Smart Devices
  • Wearables
  • Personal Navigation Devices
