Ensigma™ Location is a family of high-performance and low power IP solutions for Global Satellite Navigation Systems (GNSS). The IP is specifically designed to meet the location requirements for the low-power consumption markets such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables. Ensigma Location solutions implement all of the requirements for complex low-power System on Chip (SoC).

The Ensigma Location GNSS IP core supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou as well as several Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) including WAAS and EGNOS. The Ensigma GNSS incorporates an ultra-low power CPU core and dedicated hardware blocks which enable lower power consumption. GNSS IP not only supports continuous fix techniques, but it also supports power-efficient ‘capture and process’ for devices that only require periodic location updates. This feature conserves battery life by capturing data for post-processing without the RF active. The baseband uses several algorithmic optimisations to deliver the lowest active and idle power. This extends the system battery life while maintaining consistent location information providing a rich set of features.

Ensigma GNSS IP can be configured for lowest power or highest integration, and is designed to fit into any existing solution with the optimum level of design and resource re-use.
