CSR has introduced the SiRFatlasV multifunction GPS system processor, a system-on-chip (SoC) device designed for integration into high-volume consumer navigation and location-aware products.

Available now in production quantities, the SiRFatlasV processor combines on a single chip a 500- or 664-MHz ARM11 processor core with vector floating point unit; advanced, autonomous GPS/Galileo baseband DSP core with available SiRFAlwaysFix technology, DDR2, Mobile DDR, SD/MMC/MMC+ and NAND flash memory controllers; audio DAC; LCD touch panel controller, video post processing accelerator; USB 2.0 and other connectivity interfaces and a complete power management unit.

CSR is working with Microsoft Corporation to optimize the SiRFatlasV’s integration with Windows Embedded CE 6.0 real-time operating system on a wide range of small footprint consumer and enterprise devices.

Using CSR’s Synergy connectivity solution, the SiRFatlasV processor can be integrated with CSR’s audio and connectivity platforms incorporating a broad range of technologies — Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy, Wi-Fi, echo cancellation, noise suppression, FM receive and transmit and more.
