[Via Satellite 01-06-2016] Broadcom Corporation announced the addition of a new Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) wireless connectivity chip to its automotive portfolio. The BCM89774 provides improved location and positioning while lowering power consumption for in-vehicle applications and reduces Bill of Materials (BOM) cost for carmakers.
Automotive GPS shipments are expected to more than double by 2022, creating significant opportunities among component suppliers and increasing competition for market share. Broadcom’s BCM89774 is a wideband capture radio technology offering simultaneous tri-band reception of all visible GNSS satellites including U.S. GPS, European GAL, Japanese QZSS, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BDS and global SBAS augmentation systems.
The BCM89774 has been tested to AECQ100 automotive environmental stress requirements, is manufactured in TS16949 certified facilities and offers full production part approval process (PPAP) support.
