u-blox to showcase advanced GPS and GALILEO chipset at Intel Developer Forum
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 18th-20th.
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.
