Richardson Electronics has signed an extended worldwide distribution partnership with Tyco Electronics, a supplier of power management and protection solutions including CoEv Magnetics, Transpower Technologies and Raychem Circuit Protection. Under the terms of the agreement, Richardson will have global distribution rights for Tyco's latest A1029-A and A1029-B GPS receiver modules.

The A1029-A and A1029-B GPS receiver modules will complement Richardson's existing line of ICs. The A1029-A is the first representative of a completely new generation of GPS receiver modules that feature new levels of performance. The module combines the strength of two GPS ICs: the ST Microelectronics STA2051 GPS baseband chip with embedded ARM processor, RAM and flash coupled to the low-power and small sized SiGe SE4100L GPS RF downconverter. It offers NMEA support; an accurate 1PPS signal synchronized to the UTC, and is prepared to support WAAS/EGNOS in order to provide even higher position accuracy.

Meanwhile, the A1029-B Plug-in module, designed for easy plug-in to motherboards, is durable under unexpected vibrations and jarring, and provides an easy antenna connection via cable and a standard SMA connector.
