NemeriX raises US$22M in additional funding
NemeriX, a Switzerland-based fabless GPS semiconductor manufacteur, today announced the closing of a $22m (CHF 27m) financing round. All existing investors: Atila Venture Partners, Auriga Partners, Oak Investment Partners, PolyTechnos Venture-Partners and VI Partners participated.

NemeriX focuses on the development of low power GPS systems particularly dedicated to mobile phones. The company claims 60% power savings compared to similar GPS designs.

With this new round of funding investors continue to bet on the Lugano start-up. The recent acquisitions of Centrality by SiRF, Global Locate by Broadcom and NordNav and CPS by CSR, show that attracting the interest of a big silicon vendor might be the easiest exit road for the current investors. Moving forward the market concentration and the price reduction will make life harder for the smaller entities.
