UK: Electronic components manufacturer, TDK has announced a new collaboration with miniature GNSS modules manufacturer, OriginGPS. 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.

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.

The collaboration will also benefits OriginGPS customers. Those who purchase Spider product line modules for their wearables can now use them in conjunction with TDK antennas to meet specific requirements while minimizing design time, and receive TDK’s support for best-in-class antenna matching and simulations.

“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. “By joining designs of our products with TDK’s small form factor chip antennas, customers will be able to get a firsthand understanding of how our GNSS solutions pack the world’s smallest footprint and add functionality to a wide range of wearables and other Internet of Things devices that require low profile miniaturized chip antennas.”
