MediaTek MT3333 is an All-in-One, multi-GNSS (global navigation satellite system) system on a chip (SoC). It supports GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS, and SBAS. Suitable for a wide range of mobile, automotive, timing, personal tracker, flying drone and industrial applications, MT3333 features high tracking sensitivity for enhanced performance in dense urban environments.

Key features

  • All-in-One multi-GNSS SoC
  • GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo receiver
  • SBAS, QZSS, DGPS(RTCM), and AGPS support
  • -165dBm tracking sensitivity
  • 5~19mA continuous-tracking power consumption
  • MediaTek AlwaysLocate™ technology for reduced power consumption

MT3333 requires just eight passive external components, and is pin-compatible with MediaTek MT3337 and MT3339 for a flexible way to develop multiple tiers of mobile device, while minimizing duplication in hardware development. With built-in LNA to reach total receiver chain NF to 2.2 dB, you can eliminate the external LNA. With its on-chip image-rejection mixer, the external SAW filter is also eliminated.

Combined with many advanced features including AlwaysLocate™, EASY™, HotStill™, EPO™ and logger functions, the MT3333 provides always-on position with minimal power consumption. These features are excellent for portable applications such as DSC, cellular phone, PMP, and gaming devices.
