NemeriX to Present Benefits of Innovative GPS Solutions at ConfigCon

Over the next 24 months, consumers will benefit from instantly accessible location services based upon the way that they live, and not solely based upon a discrete personal navigation device, according to a leading maker of GPS chipsets on which PNDs depend.

NemeriX, a leading fabless semiconductor company specialising in ultra low power semiconductors and solutions for GPS, and location-based services, announced that Vice President of Marketing Lewis Boore will offer an insight into the future for personal and pedestrian navigation in a keynote speech at the 5th ConfigCon Conference, to be held in Hsinchu, Taiwan. NemeriX is giving the address at the invitation of ARC International (LSE: ARK).

Boore will be delivering the speech, entitled ‘NemeriX Low Power GPS Solutions: Enabling Mobile Devices In A Virtual World’, from 11.05am on May 8 at the Ambassador Hotel, Hsinchu. He will be joined by speakers from Shanghai Jiaotong University, RealNetworks(R), Inc (Nasdaq: RNWK) and ARC International.

The ConfigConT technical developer conference series educates system-on-chip (SoC) designers globally on the advantages of programmable media subsystems and configurable processor technology. In 2006, more than 1,000 semiconductor engineers and executives attended ConfigCon events throughout Asia and in Silicon Valley.
