U-blox demonstrates navigation using Beidou satellite system

Switzerland: Swiss-based u‑blox, a leading provider of GPS/GNSS and wireless semiconductors, has achieved successful satellite positioning using China’s Beidou navigation satellite system. The technical achievement establishes u-blox as the first GNSS component vendor to demonstrate compatibility with all globally deployed positioning systems: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and now Beidou. Customer demonstration of the technology will begin during Q1 2013.

“As the technology leader in global positioning electronics, we are thrilled to have achieved this milestone only 3 weeks after the Beidou specification was published,” said Thomas Seiler, u-blox CEO, “China will become the world’s most important single market for devices relying on embedded satellite navigation, and u-blox plans to be a major player in this market.”
