Thalwil (ots) - u-blox AG today announced the delivery of its
millionth GPS receiver to Socket Communications, Inc., for Socket's
new wireless GPS Nav Kit. The millionth GPS module, a TIM-LA, was
presented personally by Nikolaos Papadopoulos, President of u-blox
America, to Kevin Mills, President and CEO of Socket Communications
in a commemorative celebration at Socket headquarters in Newark,
"u-blox revolutionized the GPS market in 1997 when we introduced
the world's first surface-mount miniature GPS module," said
Papadopoulos. "Now, seven years later, I am very proud to present the
latest product from our successful 3rd generation TIM GPS product
line as the one millionth u-blox GPS receiver to such an innovative
company as Socket."
In 2001, just four years after the successful launch of the
world's smallest commercial GPS receiver, u-blox introduced the
successor TIM family, a one square inch form factor suited for fully
automated pick and place production. This allows u-blox customers to
manufacture small devices very reliably and cost effectively.
Combined with the excellent performance of its low-power, 16-channel
GPS chipset ANTARIS®, u-blox offers its customers unparalleled GPS
accuracy and dynamic capabilities. The TIM-LA, which Socket chose for
its new Bluetooth®-enabled GPS Nav Kit, is the latest and most
cost-efficient device from u-blox.
u-blox is an international company headquartered in Switzerland,
with sales organizations in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Founded in
1997, u-blox develops leading positioning products based on the
Global Positioning System (GPS) for the automotive and mobile
