STMicroelectronics (Geneva, Switzerland) has introduced Teseo II, a new generation of single-chip stand-alone positioning receivers for Portable Navigation Devices, in-car navigation, and telematics applications. These Systems-on-Chips are the industry’s first monolithic devices capable of receiving signals from multiple satellite navigation systems, including GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS and QZSS. ST’s Teseo II family combines high positioning accuracy and indoor sensitivity performance with powerful processing capabilities and superior design flexibility.

A stand-alone solution, the Teseo II positioning receiver integrates a powerful ARM9 core for on-chip data processing. Further increasing cost-effectiveness, the open-platform approach provides the ARM9 processing capability and a rich set of peripherals including USB 2.0, CAN (Controller Area Network), A/D converter, I2C, MSP (Multi-channel Serial Port), UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitter) and general-purpose I/Os.
