Seiko Epson Corporation and Infineon Technologies

Seiko Epson Corporation and Infineon Technologies have collaborated, producing one of the smallest single-chip advanced global positioning system (A-GPS) processors ever made. The chip, measuring just 2.8 mm x 2.9 mm, is 25% smaller than any other A-GPS chip on the market. The smaller overall design allows the GPS chip to fit into smaller devices and cuts power use by about half, when compared to GPS chips currently on the market. If smaller size and less power usage were not enough, the XPOSYS GPS Chip’s sensitivity has been improved, allowing for pinpoint positional accuracy even when indoors or in urban canyons.
