U-blox Demonstrates Navigation Using Chinese BeiDou Satellite System

THALWIL, Switzerland, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Swiss-based u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a leading provider of GPS/GNSS and wireless semiconductors, has achieved successful satellite positioning using China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System. The technical achievement establishes u-blox as the first GNSS ("Global Navigation Satellite System") component vendor to demonstrate compatibility with all globally deployed positioning systems:  GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and now BeiDou. Customer demonstration of the technology will begin during Q1 2013.

"As the technology leader in global positioning electronics, we are thrilled to have achieved this milestone only 3 weeks after the BeiDou specification was published," said Thomas Seiler, u-blox CEO. " China will become the world's most important single market for devices relying on embedded satellite navigation, and u-blox plans to be a major player in this market."

BeiDou-2, also known as "Compass," currently has 15 satellites in orbit, offering navigation and positioning services to users in China and Southeast Asia. It will ultimately consist of 35 satellites providing worldwide positioning capability over its open service to within 10 meters accuracy.

u-blox will be demonstrating BeiDou compatibility with their latest GNSS platform at embeddedworld 2013 during February 26-28, 2013 in Nuremberg, Germany, stand 4A-325. To set up a meeting in advance, please contact info@u-blox.com
