SiRF just introduced SiRFprima, a new super sensitive GPS receiver platform combined with hardware-accelerated 3D graphics and multimedia encoding and decoding engines designed to significantly enhance user experience for location applications and media rich content.
The SiRFprima multifunction processor delivers SiRF’s renowned, industry leading, GPS-enabled location performance, featuring 64 channels with -161 dBm sensitivity. The hardware scalable location engine, with more than 1,000,000 correlators, is among the first capable of working with both GPS and Galileo signals simultaneously. Additionally, the SiRFprima processor has been specifically designed to support SiRF’s proprietary GPS technologies, providing, for example, a dedicated accelerator for the SiRFInstantFixII technology.
SiRFprima also has the ability to support peripheral and external interfaces for connecting to touch screens, mass storage devices, video cameras, DVD players, satellite radios and other devices.
The SiRFprima multifunction platform will begin sampling to lead customers in the second quarter of this year.
