Epson has announced the world's smallest GPS module. It's intended for mobile phone handsets but is likely to find applications in many other embedded applications including robotics. The S4E19863 chip is 7mm x 6mm and 1.28mm thick. Epson is already shipping the chips in bulk. The tiny GPS offers high sensitivity (-160 dBm) and 3GPP-compliant positioning modes including MS-Based, MS-Assisted, and Autonomous. Time to first fix is claimed to be 2-3 seconds outdoors and 7 seconds indoors.
