CSR's SiRFstarIV GPS powers location awareness in new Samsung GALAXY S II smartphone

CSR has announced that its SiRFstarIV GPS architecture is powering location awareness in the newest version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the GALAXY S II.
The SiRFstarIV GSD4t at the heart of the Samsung GALAXY S II is a host-based GPS receiver optimised for smartphones and other mobile consumer devices that contain their own powerful application processors. It has the ability to continually maintain “better-than-hot-start” conditions in the GPS receiver for fast location fixes without having to be kept fully turned on all the time and draining precious battery power.

SiRFstarIV GSD4t features such as active jammer removal, single-SAW design, an on-chip LNA, fail-safe I/O, integrated switchers, single supply voltage, simple RF matching and small size and packaging make it easier for designers to use and integrate into their products.
