How Does a GPS Mobile Work ?

What and we just handling the GPS system with our mobile but no one thinks how it works the GPS is. Now we are going to discuss about GPS. GPS stands for Global Positioning System, which provides the exact position and time anywhere on the earth. This has been designed with 24 satellites that orbit at 11000 nautical miles above the earth. Usually this GPS is used for automotive navigation and wireless applications.
To function a GPS there are three major chips to the navigation. The chips are Colossus – PMB 3330 – 8R, IO – PMB 2500 and Hammerhead II – PMB – 2525.
Colossus - PMB 3330 - 8R:
This Colossus PMB 330-8R is a tightly integrated, single chip and a dual conversion radio receiver with pseudo I/Q outputs. This has a programmable frequency synthesizer for referencing two clock frequencies, a low noise amplifier, two built in samplers and power down circuitry. This chip has been designed to work with IO-12 channel GPS Correlator IC.

•High integration, e.g. fully integrated VCO

•P-TSSOP 24 or PG-VQFN 24 package available
•4 power-saving modes
•Low power consumption: <20 mW (2.7V)
•Extended operating temperature: -40° - 85° Celsius
•4 power-saving modes
IO - PMB 2500:
The Correlator IC gives an output of GPS measurement data to host a microprocessor, the host system will use this data for computing the position, velocity, and time solutions. In this IO 12 channels has been designed to enable parallel tracking of the GPS.
this IO 12 channels has been designed to enable parallel tracking of the GPS.
•12 channels
•Extended operating temperature: -40° - 85° Celsius
•Ease of integration with standard serial interface
•Few external components for lowest bill of material
•13MHz and 12.504 MHz frequency plan
•J-TAG Boundary Scan
•Ultra low power consumption: < 8mW (3.3V)
•4 power saving-modes
•P-TSSOP 28 or PG-VQFN 40 package available
Hammerhead™ II - PMB 2525:
This is the smallest size and highest in performance provider in GPS receiver. This is additionally used in printing a new benchmark for high performance in positioning and to navigation into mobile functions. This chip size is 3.59 x 3.74 mm2 now provides facilities to integrate into miniaturized mobile concepts.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou

Google Health Login Page is Ready!

Google's Marissa Mayer announced that the Google Health will be launched on 2008. The service of the Google Health Login Page is ready. It's only the first intro page is displayed and I didn't get passed to the next page. In the same page y0u can see the information displaying on the Google Health. If you point your mouse on the below link you can visit the Google Health Page With Google Health, you can: * Build online health profiles that belong to you * Download medical records from doctors and pharmacies * Get personalized health guidance and relevant news * Find qualified doctors and connect to time-saving services * Share selected information with family or caregivers This will be a nice development about caring health and this will helps in having some cautious about health.
