ASUS Selects NXP Software's GPS for Notebook PC

NXP Software and ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS) today announced the world's first mainstream notebook PC with integrated GPS capability, the ASUS U3S. This is the first product design to result from the collaboration between the two companies.

The U3S uses NXP Software's swGPS(TM) Spot software GPS baseband technology to perform all necessary GPS signal processing entirely in software, allowing users to access the fast-growing range of location-based services from navigation and local search to mobile social networking, or theft protection.

"We are very excited to be working closely with ASUS to bring this innovation to market," says Hans Streng, NXP Vice President and General Manager of the Business Unit Emerging Business. "With the U3S, we are delighted to help continue this trend through swGPS(TM) Spot, and bring GPS technology to the consumer notebook market."
