Alternative to AD6528

Hello,

I have been tasked with a job to redesign an asset tracker to make is much smaller than it currently is. At the moment it is 80mm*50mm*25mm. It has a GSM/GPRS/GPS module inside that occupies 30mm*30mm on the PCB space. WHen I decided to open I found that the chipset inside there ARM926-EJS with a lot of features that are not sued or at least not all its power is utilized.

In a discussion it was agreed that to make the whole thing smaller, we would have to change it. I have been searching for a long time and the solution seems to get a chipset or chip that can be laid out on a PCB and only exposing features required. (We don't need LCD, Keypad, Speakers etc..)

The AD6528 seems to be a perfect choice for the job but it is not obsolete. Could any one suggest to me any other alternatives or solutions?

  • Hi,

    I am not familiar with the SoftFone products, however I don't believe there are any such products still available. The products in our Processors and DSP line may meet your DSP-side requirements, but would require additional components.

    I would recommend contacting your local sales office or distributor, whose details can be found from the link below. They would be able to recommend products and components based on your specific requirements.

    You could also contact Rochester Electronics, who are the authorized source of Analog Devices' products that have previously been discontinued or have become obsolete. They may have some stock, or may be able to recommend alternatives.

    Regards,

    Craig.
