Singapore: SiliconGate has announced that u-blox has used SiliconGate’ High Performance Power Management IP in its newest generation core positioning technology platform u-blox 7. A key figure of UBX-G7020 is the high efficiency, requiring only 7 mW in continuous navigation. UBX-G7020 includes SiliconGate IP from the Ultra Low Power and from the Ultra Fast High Efficiency families.
“Our GNSS satellite receivers are often used in portable battery operated devices where low power consumption is a crucial requirement for our customers. Integrating SiliconGate’s power management IP into our latest u-blox 7 positioning platform gives our products a strategic advantage and enables us to bring a whole new generation of attractive chip and module products on the market”, said Eric De Mey, VP of IC development at u-blox.
“It is our mission to power our partner’s success”, “We strive to add value to our customers’ products. One of our main achievements has been to make our DC/DC converters SoC and RF friendly. This means: low noise, compact, efficient at low loads and using small inductors so that they can be used where they make a difference. Seeing such differentiated products like the UBX-G7020 makes every effort worth,” said Floriberto Lima, CEO of SiliconGate.
