Ashtech And Philips Semiconductors Enter Agreement

Ashtech, Inc. and Philips Semiconductors unveiled a joint effort to develop a two-chip Global Positioning Systems (GPS) chipset ideal for cellular phones and other wireless technology. The GPS receiver chipset will provide the user with GPS receiver function as well as an embedded controller to convert the raw satellite data to a navigation solution.

"This venture fits with Ashtech's company road map to sell technology at all levels of integration and enter the mass consumer market through a board/chipset strategy," said Chuck Boesenberg, president and CEO of Ashtech. "Philips was selected because of their dominant position in wireless and communications technology." For more information on Ashtech Circle 195 on Reader Service Card
