GNSS IC Design Trends: Modules, Standalone, Combo, and Embedded

Purchase

GNSS IC designs have always evolved, altering to meet the needs of new high-volume markets. As well as new emerging verticals such as wearables, new always-on indoor location technologies are changing how GNSS is deployed and designed. In smartphones and tablets, the move to low-end high-volume devices is changing both implementation and market shares. IC vendors are reviewing their design roadmaps to determine how best to meet the demands of each market.

This report looks at 10 major and emerging verticals (fitness, automotive, tablet, cellular, M2M, fleet management, etc.), outlining GNSS penetration for embedded, standalone, combo, and module GNSS implementations, considering how implementation approaches will change to meet the needs of the market over the next 5 years. The report also considers the role of GLONASS, BeiDou, sensor fusion and indoor location technologies on future design trends.
