STMicro Debuts Multiple GNSS Receiver SoC
STMicroelectronics today introduced Teseo II, a new generation of single-chip stand-alone positioning receivers.

"Teseo II is the world's first single-chip solution able to acquire and track signals from satellites of multiple global navigation systems, including GPS, GLONASS and QZSS that are operational today, as well as Europe's upcoming GALILEO," said Fabio Marchio, Automotive Product Group Vice-President and General Manager of ST's Automotive Infotainment Division.

"The superior positioning accuracy, combined with powerful processing capabilities and open platform approach, makes ST's Teseo II chips an ideal choice for next-generation navigation and telematics applications, where cost-effectiveness meets uncompromised performance."

Samples of STMicro's Teseo II receivers (STA8088EX) are available and volume production is scheduled for the third quarter 2011. Unit pricing of the STA8088EX is below $6 for volumes in the range of 500,000 pieces, said STMicro.
