San Francisco (ots) - u-blox America Inc., a worldwide leader in
GNSS technology, including GPS and Galileo chipsets for mobile,
battery-powered products, today announced its participation at the
Intel Developer Forum to be held in San Francisco from September
u-blox will be showcasing its latest and most advanced chipset,
u-blox5. With -160 dBm SuperSense(r) sensitivity, 50 channels,
excellent noise immunity, time-to-first fix under one second and less
than 50mW power-consumption, u-blox5 will allow GPS enabled
Ultra-Mobile PCs (UMPCs) and Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) to
operate in the most challenging and difficult indoor environments
such as shopping malls, train stations and urban canyons.
"With u-blox5, ODMs and OEMs creating small-form factor devices
based on Intel's leading mobile architecture and platforms will enjoy
unprecedented GPS performance for navigation, LBS and other GPS
related applications," said Nikolaos Papadopoulos, President of
u-blox America, Inc.
u-blox will also showcase recent innovations like AssistNow(r),
u-blox' end-to-end A-GPS solutions that enhance receiver performance,
enabling instant positioning anywhere, at anytime. AssistNow services
make the long waiting times usually associated with standard GPS
acquisition performance a thing of the past, even in difficult signal
conditions. The recently introduced AssistNow Offline provides
assistance data valid for up to 14 days, which is stored in the GPS
receiver. This enables the receiver to compute a position instantly
without having to connect to a mobile network at start-up to download
the data, as is the case with typical A-GPS services.
