SkyTraq Technology Inc, has decided to promote its latest AGPS chipset solutions at CeBIT 2008, taking place in Hanover Germany from March 4—March 9.

SkyTraq will be showcasing its latest stand-alone Venus 6 AGPS technology, featuring 65-channel, fast 29-second cold-start, and low power consumption of 40mW. Fast signal acquisition, weak signal tracking, and low power consumption make the Venus 6 suitable for enabling navigation function on mobile phone and portable devices using small antennas.

A variety of Venus 6 chipset solutions will be introduced. QFN packaged Venus 6T for minimal BOM cost standard type application, QFN packaged Venus 6D for minimal BOM cost geo-tagging applications, TFBGA packaged Venus 6S chipset for minimal footprint, and Flash-based Venus 6F for programmability and customization.

SkyTraq will also promote its new Venus 122 GPS/Galileo RF front-end. Venus122-based software-GPS/AGPS solution suitable for locate-on-demand type of application will be available in Q3 2008, cutting the BOM cost of adding GPS/AGPS functionality to mobile computing platforms to under Rs.39.37 ($1) for volume customers.

The SkyTraq Venus architecture is designed with performance, size, and cost in mind to meet stringent requirements of portable consumer GPS applications. Stand-alone architecture of the Venus 6 chipset solutions makes it particularly easy to integrate, reducing development cost, and shortening time to market.
