STMicroelectronics Debuts the World's First Single-Chip Positioning Device for Multiple Global Navigation Systems
Monday, 24 January 2011
GENEVA, 24 Jan. 2011- STMicroelectronics , a leading supplier of semiconductors for navigation and car infotainment, today 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 (SoCs) 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.
The ability of ST's newest positioning devices to acquire the position, velocity and time data from all major global navigation systems greatly improves the user position accuracy and navigation in poor satellite visibility conditions, such as in urban canyons. The Teseo II chips also offer exceptionally short signal-acquisition times (Time To First Fix), leveraging ST's own Self-Trained Assisted GPS™ technology, which improves the startup performance of a positioning device in difficult signal conditions.

LAS VEGAS, 4 Jan. 2011 - OnStar today announced that it is responding to repeated consumer requests by offering its industry leading safety, security and connectivity services for non-GM and older GM vehicles already on the road. A standalone rearview mirror packing all of OnStar's core technology will be available this spring through consumer electronics retailers, and is compatible with most top-selling vehicles from major manufacturers.
The OnStar retail product offers the key features that have made OnStar's "blue button" an icon, including Automatic Crash Response, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance, one-button access to emergency and roadside services, and hands-free calling, including Bluetooth connectivity.
"For years, thousands of drivers have asked us to get OnStar in vehicles that didn't feature it as standard," said Chris Preuss, OnStar president. "With the retail product that we've introduced today they certainly can. This move in to the consumer electronics space represents the biggest development in our business model since introducing OnStar as standard across all GM products several years ago. It represents a quantum leap forward in our plans to grow our business and provide a strong new revenue base for GM and OnStar from which we can further develop our core offerings in the factory-equipped market."
OnStar will offer the mirror in the United States through Best Buy, its first strategic retail partner, beginning in spring 2011. The product will also be available through other selected consumer electronics retailers. The mirror will be priced at $299, plus installation (expected to cost between $75 and $100).
