CSR (LSE:CSR) launched a high-speed, high-accuracy embedded positioning software product called the E5000. As part of its portfolio of GPS demonstrations at 3GSM World Congress, CSR will be showcasing E5000 on a number of platforms including the advanced 3DLabs multimedia processor and the most popular PND (personal navigation device) platform, the Samsung 2440.
CSR provides the most cost competitive, feature-rich GPS solution on the market, allowing very short Time To First Fix (TTFF), enhanced tracking accuracy, small footprint, and low power consumption. CSR’s GPS solution is software-based and requires no further hardware beyond a RF front-end, hence the E5000 requires less than half the power and significantly less space than competing hardware GPS solutions.
Matthew Phillips, Senior Vice President of CSR’s Mobile Handset Connectivity Business Unit commented, “CSR’s ability to offer the highest level of GPS capability at significantly lower cost with such small footprint and power requirements is of real advantage to our customers. These features make positioning viable in every mobile phone and other portable applications.” Phillips continued, “During 2007, CSR will enable customers to employ seamless location, including indoor positioning, support for the European Galileo system and location aware technology. CSR ultimately offers a superior user experience.”
CSR’s E5000 software is available for multiple operating systems and various hardware platforms and enables flexible application and service delivery.
CSR will be demonstrating its high-sensitivity, A-GPS solutions at 3GSM with its global GPS assistance server supporting standardised SUPL (secure user plane location) for use in mobile handsets.
