Alpha Micro Wins U-Blox GPS Product Franchise

(PresseBox) ( Hampshire, )
Alpha Micro Components Ltd, a leading international distributor of electronic components, has been appointed as the sole distributor of u-blox products for the UK and Ireland. The portfolio of products offered will include world leading GPS chips, GPS receiver modules, evaluation boards, and the AssistNow A-GPS Services, which significantly enhance the u-blox receiver signal acquisition.

Market leader, u-blox specialises in developing technology, products and services for the automotive and mobile communications markets based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), including GPS and Galileo.

u-blox devices can be easily integrated into different OEM products, offering best-in-class tracking and navigation in weak signal environments such as heavily built up areas or indoor locations. This is possible thanks to the SuperSense Indoor GPS technology developed by u-blox, which allows its GPS receivers to detect the weakest signals as low as 160dBm. This compensation in sensitivity allows the use of smaller antennas and increased flexibility in device location.

u-blox GPS modules allow navigational functionality to be more quickly embedded to a vast array of products within many vertical markets. u-blox’s range of compact, low power, cost effective GPS modules make them ideal for customers developing applications with space and cost constraints.

u-blox products are typically used in navigation, automatic vehicle location, asset tracking, security, traffic control, mobile phones, personal navigation devices, location based services, timing, surveying, network synchronisation and other applications.

"End users will now benefit from the local support of a design based distributor. Alpha Micro has a dedicated engineering team with many years experience in designing and supporting M2M and tracking solutions incorporating GPS technology." commented Huub Robroek of u-blox.

Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components, commented: "Combining high performance products from u-blox and quality support from Alpha Micro means our customers will be able to quickly and efficiently design a solution to suit their specific needs, ultimately ensuring their products’ success in the market place."
