By | March 9, 2004

      Atmel [ATML], a San Jose, Calif.-based manufacturer of chipsets, has placed its technology in a new Global Positioning System (GPS) product to improve navigation accuracy and integrity as well as to provide higher sensitivity.

      A new Atmel chipset, embedded in ROM version 3.0, will be provided to new customers at no additional charge and will be given as an update to existing customers who have Flash memory. The GPS chipset is capable of receiving SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation Systems) signals from multiple geostationary satellites simultaneously, including the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) in the United States or EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigational Overlay System) in Europe.
