1.4 Multi-tone active interference canceller
Navigation system often integrated with variant applications that are not limited to Wi-Fi,
GSM/GPRS, 3G/4G, Bluetooth. Such system, as often seen, generates RF harmonics which would
influence the GPS reception and performance. The embedded multi-tone active interference
canceller (MTAIC) is capable of rejecting unwanted RF harmonics of the nearby on-board active
components. MTAIC improves the capacity of GPS reception leaving hardware integration
engineering without the need of hardware changes. GMM-U2P cancels up to 12 independent
channels continuous interference wave.
1.5 1PPS
GMM-U2P generates a_pulse_per_second signal (1 PPS). It is an electrical signal which precisely
indicates the start of a second with the accuracy of ±10ns RMS.
In general, 1 PPS signals are used to provide precise timekeeping and time measurement to the
system. It is commonly used for timekeeping in computers which may involve with the NTP protocol.
GMM-U2P generates highly accurate 1PPS based timing method to synchronize GPS positioning time
after obtained 3D-Fix. 1PPS output at power on is available through firmware customization service.
1.6 Timer Function for device on/off control
The timer function support a time tick generation of 31.25ms resolution, the period of timer can be
from 31.25ms to 524287s, the pin outputs signal during the timer period and becomes a input pin
after time out, the system can use the pin to connect an external LDO controller and pull high circuit
to enable other device for specified operation (ex: wake up GSM/GPRS processor to transmit
location data of asset during one period, then enter power saving mode after finish its job)
1.7 AGPS Support for Fast TTFF (EPO in flash™)
The AGPS (EPO in flash™) supply the predicated Extended Prediction Orbit data to speed TTFF. Users
can download the EPO data to GPS engine from the FTP server via internet or wireless network. The
GPS engine of the module will use the EPO data to assist position calculation when the navigation
information from satellites is not enough as is the case of weak signal. For more details on EPO, visit
our website.

1.8 EASY™
Embedded Assist System (EASY™) is embedded within the receiver module to assist for quick
positioning when not enough information is received from the satellites. With EASY™ technology,
the GPS engine is able to calculate and predict up to 3 days single ephemeris automatically when
power on. It then saves the predicted information onto the memory. So the GPS engine can use this
information for positioning later if no enough information received from the satellites. This function
will be helpful for TTFF improvement to allow positioning even under weak signal condition such
dense urban. Backup power (VBACKUP) is required for this feature.
Figure 1.12-1 EASY System operation
Figure 1.12-1 show that when GPS device obtained the satellite information from GPS satellites, the
GPS engine automatically pre-calculates to predict orbits for 3 extended days.

1.9 AlwaysLocate™ (Advance Power Periodic Mode)
GMM-U2P uses AlwaysLocate™ (Advance Power Periodic Mode) modes to achieve power saving by
adaptively adjust the on/off time to achieve balance between positioning accuracy and power
consumption according to the environmental and motion conditions to achieve best power
conservation.
The following figure gives some insight on power saving under different use cases when
AlwaysLocate™ mode is enabled. For command detail, please contact our sales staff at
[email protected]
1.10 LOCUS (Embedded Logger function)
When LOCUS (Embedded Logger Function) feature is enabled, the receiver module becomes a logger
capable device. It does not need a host or external flash to log GPS data, such as data format: UTC,
latitude, longitude, valid, checksum. The maximum constant log duration can be up to 2 days under
AlwaysLocate™ condition.

5. Packing and Handling
GMM-U2P, like any other SMD devices, is sensitive to moisture, electrostatic discharge, and
temperature. By following the standards outlined in this document for AscenKorea module storage
and handling, the chances of them being damaged during production set-up can be reduced. This
section will walk you through the basics on how AscenKorea packages its modules to ensure they
arrive at their destination without any damages and deterioration to performance quality. It includes
cautionary notes for prior to the surface mount process.
Please read the sections II to V carefully to avoid permanent damages due to moisture
intake.
GPS receiver modules contain highly sensitive electronic circuits and are electronic sensitive
devices. Improper handling without ESD protections may lead to permanent damages to the
modules. Please read section VI for more details.
5.1 Moisture Sensitivity
AscenKorea modules are moisture sensitive, and must be pre-baked before going through the solder
reflow process. It is important to know that:
AscenKorea GPS modules must complete solder reflow process in 72 hours after pre-baking.
This maximum time is otherwise known as “Floor Life”
If the waiting time has exceeded 72 hours, it is possible for the module to suffer damages during the
solder reflow process such as cracks and delamination of the SMD pads due to excess moisture
pressure.

5.3 Storage and Floor Life Guideline
Since AscenKorea modules must undergo solder-reflow process in 72 hours after it has gone through
pre-baking procedure, therefore if it is not used by then, it is recommended to store the GPS
modules in dry places such as dry cabinet.
The approximate shelf life for AscenKorea GPS modules packages is 6 months from the bag seal date,
when store in a non-condensing storage environment (<30°C/60% RH)
It is important to note that it is a required process for AscenKorea GPS modules to undergo
pre-baking procedures, regardless of the storage condition.
5.4 Drying
When GPS modules exposed to high temperature of solder reflow, the moisture vapor pressure
inside the GPS modules increase greatly. In order to prevent internal delaminating, cracking of the
device or the “popcorn” phenomenon, to undergo pre-baking procedure become necessary prior to
any high temperature or solder reflow process.
The recommended baking time for AscenKorea GPS module is as follows:
 60°C for 8 to 12 hours
Once baked, the module’s floor life will be “reset”, and has additional 72 hours in normal factory
condition to undergo solder reflow process.
Please limit the number of times the GPS modules undergoes baking processes as repeated
baking process has an effect of reducing the wetting effectiveness of the SMD pad contacts.
This applies to all SMT devices.
Oxidation Risk: Baking SMD packages may cause oxidation and/or intermetallic growth of
the terminations, which if excessive, can result in solderability problems during board
assembly. The temperature and time for baking SMD packages are therefore limited by
solderability considerations. The cumulative bake time at a temperature greater than 90°C
and up to 125°C shall not exceed 96 hours. Bake temperatures higher than 125°C are not
allowed.

5.5 ESD Handling
Please carefully follow the following precautions to prevent severe damage to
GPS modules.
AscenKorea GPS modules are sensitive to electrostatic discharges, and thus are Electrostatic
Sensitive Devices (ESD). Careful handling of the GPS modules particularly to its patch antenna (if
included) and RF_IN pin. Please follow the standard ESD safety practices stated below:
 Unless there is a galvanic coupling between the local GND and the PCB GND, then the first
point of contact when handling the PCB shall always be between the local GND and PCB GND.
 Before working with RF_IN pin, please make sure the GND is connected
 When working with RF_IN pin, do not contact any charged capacitors or materials that can
easily develop or store charges such as patch antenna, coax cable, soldering iron.
 Please do not touch the mounted patch antenna to prevent electrostatic discharge from the
RF input
 When soldering RF_IN pin, please make sure to use an ESD safe soldering iron tip.

Notes
Before proceeding with the reflowsoldering process, the GPS module must
be pre-baked.
Pre-bake Time:
The maximum tolerated
temperature for the tray is
100°C.
6 Hours @ 60°±5°C or
4 Hours @ 70°±5°C
After the pre-baking
process, please make sure
the temperature is
sufficiently cooled down to
35°C or below in order to
prevent any tray
deformation.

Because PCBA (along with the patch
antenna) is highly endothermic during
the reflow-soldering process. Extra care
must be paid to the GPS module's solder
joints if any signs of cold weld(ing) or
false welding.
The parameters of the
reflow temperature
must be set accordingly
to module’s reflowsoldering temperature
profile.
Double check to see if the
surrounding components
around the GPS module are
displaying symptoms of
cold weld(ing) or false
welding.

Special attentions are needed for PCBA
board during reflow-soldering to see if
there are any symptoms of bending or
deformation to the PCBA board, possibly
due to the weight of the module. If so,
this will cause concerns at the latter half
of the production process.
A loading carrier fixture
must be used with PCBA
if the reflow soldering
process is using rail
conveyors for the
production.
If there is any bending or
deformation to the PCBA
board, this might causes
the PCBA to collide into
one another during the
unloading process.

Before the PCBA is undergoing a reflowsoldering process, the production
operators must check with own eyes to
see if there are positional offset to the
module, because it will be difficult to
readjust after the module has gone
through reflow-soldering process.
The operators must
check with own eyes
and readjust the
position before reflowsoldering process.
If the operator is planning
to readjust the module
position, please do not
touch the patch antenna
while the module is hot in
order to prevent rotational
offset between the patch
antenna and module
Note: References to patch antenna is referred to GPS modules with integrated Patch-on-top
antennas (PA/Gms Module Series), and may not be applicable to all GPS modules.

Notes
Before handling the PCBA, they must be
cooled to 35°C or below after they have
undergone a reflow-soldering process, in
order to prevent positional shift which
may occurred when the module is still
hot.
1. One may use electric
fans behind the reflow
machine to cool them
down.
It is very easy to cause
positional offset to the
module and its patch
antenna when handling the
PCBA under high
temperature.
1. When separating the PCBA panel into
individual pieces using the V-Cut process,
special attentions are needed to ensure
that there are sufficient gap between
patch antennas.
1. The blade and the
patch antenna must
have a distance gap
greater than 0.6mm.
2. If V-Cut process is not available and the
pieces must be separated manually,
please make sure the operators are not
using excess force which may cause
rotational offset to the patch antennas.

2. Cooling the PCBA can
prevent the module
from shifting due to
fluid effect.
2. Do not use patch
antenna as the leverage
point when separating
the panels by hand.
When separating panel into individual
Use tray to separate
pieces during latter half of the production individual pieces.
process, special attentions are needed to
ensure the patch antennas do not come
in contact with one another in order to
prevent chipped corners or positional
shifts.
1. Test must be performed
first to determine if V-Cut
process is going to be used.
Ensure that there is enough
space between the blade
and the patch antenna so
that they do not touch one
another.
2. An uneven amount of
manual force applied to the
separation will likely to
cause positional shift in
patch antenna and module.
It is possible to chip corner
and/or cause a shift in
position if patch antennas
come in contact with each
other.

antennas (PA/Gms Module Series), and may not be applicable to all GPS modules.

Other Cautionary Notes on Reflow-Soldering Process:
1. Module must be pre-baked before going through SMT solder reflow process.
2. The usage of solder paste should follow “First-in-First out” principle. Opened solder paste
needs to be monitored and recorded in a timely manner (refer to IPQC standards for related
documentation and examples).
3. Temperature and humidity must be controlled within SMT production line and storage area.
Temperature of 23°C, 60±5% RH humidity is recommended. (please refer to IPQC standards
for related documentation and examples)
4. When performing solder paste printing, please notice if the amount of solder paste is in
excess or insufficient, as both conditions may lead to defects such as electrical shortage,
empty solder and etc.
5. Make sure the vacuum mouthpiece is able to bear the weight of the GPS module to prevent
positional shift during the loading process.
6. Before the PCBA is going through the reflow-soldering process, the operators should check
with his/her own eyes to see if there are positional offset to the module.
7. The reflow temperature and its profile data must be measured before the SMT process and
match the levels and guidelines set by IPQC.
8. If SMT protection line is running a double-sided process for PCBA, please process GPS
module during the second pass only to avoid repeated reflow exposures of the GPS module.
Please contact AscenKorea beforehand if you must process GPS module during the 1st pass
of double-side process.
Figure 4: Place GPS module right-side up when running reflow-solder process, do not invert.

6.2 Manual Soldering
Soldering iron:
Heat temperature: under 380°C
|
Time: under 3 sec.
Notes:
1. Please do not directly touch the soldering pads on the surface of the PCB board to prevent
further oxidation
2. The solder paste must be defrosted to room temperature before use so it can return to its
optimal working temperature. The time required for this procedure is unique and dependent
on the properties of the solder paste used.
3. The steel plate must be properly assessed before and after use, so its measurement stays
strictly within the specification set by SOP.
4. Please watch out for the spacing between soldering joint, as excess solder may cause
electrical shortage
5. Please exercise with caution and do not use extensive amount of flux due to possible siphon
effects on neighboring components, which may lead to electrical shortage.
6. Please do not use the heat gun for long periods of time when removing the shielding or
inner components of the GPS module, as it is very likely to cause a shift to the inner
components and will leads to electrical shortage.
