Thalwil, Switzerland -- u-blox AG, the leading Swiss provider of GPS receiver technology, will showcase u-blox 5, a Galileo-ready A-GPS chip featuring an acquisition performance of less than one second, at the 2007 CeBIT trade show in Hanover, Germany. CeBIT, which runs from March 15-21.

u-blox will be promoting its u-blox 5 chip at the event. The new technology boasts an acquisition and tracking sensitivity of -160 dBm that enables indoor coverage, a 50-channel engine and a power consumption of less than 50 mW. Its energy efficiency and tracking sensitivity make it ideal for GPS-enabled battery-operated portable devices that operate in difficult indoor environments like shopping malls, train stations and urban canyons.

"Our ultra fast u-blox 5 chip, with its low power consumption and indoor performance, enables a whole new range of innovative GPS-enabled applications, from handheld navigation devices to smart phones," said Thomas Seiler, u-blox CEO.

u-blox will also showcase recent innovations like AssistNow(R), u-blox' end-to-end A-GPS solutions that enhance receiver performance, enabling instant positioning anywhere, at anytime. AssistNow services make the long waiting times usually associated with standard GPS acquisition performance a thing of the past, even in difficult signal conditions. The recently introduced AssistNow Offline provides assistance data valid for up to 14 days, which is stored in the GPS receiver. This enables the receiver to compute a position instantly without having to connect to a mobile network at start-up to download the data, as is the case with typical A-GPS services.
