OriginGPS, a leader in miniature Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) modules, announced today a new collaboration with TDK. As part of this collaboration, customers utilizing OriginGPS Spider modules will receive increased support to integrate TDK antennas into their designs. Existing reference designs coupled with TDK’s extensive Electromagnetic (EM) simulation capabilities will allow customers to maximize GNSS performance. “TDK is one of the most well-respected names in the RF industry, so it goes without saying that we’re very excited to be working with them to provide best-in-class location modules to their customers,” said Gal Jacobi, CEO of OriginGPS. This collaboration pairs OriginGPS’ smallest GNSS receiver modules, including the recently unveiled Multi Micro Spider, with the smallest chip antennas by TDK to deliver a “mini + mighty” solution for wearables that represents the best of both worlds: combining TDK’s specialized RF simulation capabilities with OriginGPS’ GNSS expertise and support.
