Bryton Partners with High-end GPS manufacturer

By Jody Ray Bennett February 08, 2013

Taiwan-based company Bryton, known internationally for sport-enthusiast based GPS-enabled products, has announced collaboration with Swiss company, 'u-blox GPS', known for their high-end GPS components, and cellular receivers. This integration of the UBX-G6010 GPS single chip will bring “Rich, attractive and useful applications that bring fun and enjoyment into everyday fitness and exercise activities,” Geoconnexion reports.

Among the slated features are lower power consumption, smaller devices, more accurate results, and upgradeability in the future.

As the electronic devices begin to target the sport industry, Bryton plans to keep its core sport-enthusiast in mind when making their new products.

“It must be smart, small, attractive, accurate, dependable, and packed with interesting and useful features that make their workouts more fun and informative," said Mr. Wolf Lin, President at Bryton Inc. “u-blox’ is an extremely small GPS chip solution requires very few external components, meaning don’t need to allocate much space in our products to achieve state-of-the-art, extremely sensitive GPS positioning capability."

The company’s marketing of the product notes that “a primary feature is long battery life."

A press report notes: “Thanks to u-blox’ low power chip design with sophisticated power saving modes, the GPS receiver, which must be active much of the time, requires only a small fraction of the device’s power.”

U-blox also created SARA Land Grid Array, a product that streamlines the small, but electronically powerful aspects of its GPS. According to a report, “The SARA Land Grid Array (LGA) form factor enables compact designs and easy integration, and supports simple migration to u-blox' LISA UMS and CDMA modules via PCB layout compatibility. Support for A-GPS and u-blox' unique CellLocate positioning technology is embedded to facilitate advanced telematics applications including indoor positioning.”

Later this month, U-blox will be demonstrating its capacity to incorporate Chinese language into several of its products, many of which are sold throughout Asian markets.
