Location Devices

GPS/GNSS technology has brought about a major shift in the technology world, enabling whole new device categories, applications, and revenue opportunities. Traditional device markets such as In-Car, PNDs, Smartphones, and High-Precision GNSS remain vitally important to the industry and continue to evolve with new form factors, technologies and competitors, in the face of increasing competition.

The market is now undergoing an evolution as GNSS diversifies into markets such as tablets, cameras, people tracking and health and fitness is creating exciting new opportunities for IC and system vendors alike.

New market opportunities are being supplemented with new GPS IC innovation such as low cost solutions, high precision systems, integration with alternative positioning solutions, IC integration into combo chipsets and the adoption of more global standards such as Glonass and Compass.
