CSR’s SiRFatlasVTM Multifunction SoC Platform Powers The New Mio® PND Product Line

2012 International CES – CSR plc (LSE:CSR) (NASDAQ:CSRE) today announced that Mio Technology Corporation (Mio), a leading maker of mobile GPS devices, has extended its strategic collaboration with CSR, deploying CSR’s SiRFatlasV TM SoC and TriG RF-based platform to provide the multimedia and navigation capability for its new-generation line of personal navigation devices (PNDs).

The new line is the latest member of Mio’s popular line of PNDs targeted at mainstream consumers. With the addition of CSR’s SiRFatlasV and TriG RF technologies, the new PNDs offer extremely high-performance location and multimedia capabilities to enable users the ability to quickly and accurately find where they want to go, anywhere in the world.

SiRFatlasV is a multifunction GNSS-enabled system processor delivering high levels of integration, performance, cost-effectiveness and power efficiency, enabling manufacturers to create high-volume, value-priced consumer navigation and location-aware products. The SiRFatlasV ARM 11 and DSP dual-core architecture delivers high performance GPS, high-MIPs application computing and robust multifunction capabilities on a single chip to reduce system cost and size while speeding time to market. This high degree of integration reduces parts count and bill of material (BOM) costs, power requirements and PC board size while simplifying design and speeding development and time to market. SiRFatlasV includes CSR’s hibernation technology, delivering the ability to navigate in a heart-beat and provides superior location and navigation performance via CSR’s multi-GNSS system support.

In addition, the SiRFatlasV processor can be seamlessly integrated with CSR's audio and connectivity platforms incorporating a broad range of technologies: Bluetooth®, Bluetooth low energy, Wi-Fi®, echo cancellation, noise suppression, FM receive and transmit and more. Mio can easily combine them as needed for different product categories in the future.

The platform includes the TriG RF advanced radio frequency (RF) front end radio chip which supports the U.S. GPS, Russian Glonass, European Galileo, and Chinese Compass systems. The multi-GNSS capability of TriG RF provides users with optimal location performance in myriad worldwide markets. In Russia and China, PNDs supporting local GNSS technologies like Glonass and Compass may have advantages in avoiding tariffs and expanding selling channels.
