Multi-Constellation GNSS IP licensed to a US Semi-Conductor company for integration into a ultra-low power cellular IOT chip by T2M.

29th April 2020, Munich, Germany, T2M, the global independent semiconductor technology provider, has recently facilitated licensing its partners Multi-Constellation GNSS IP to a US Semiconductor company. The Multi GNSS digital and RF IP supports all constellation including but not limited to GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS, BEIDOU, QZSS, IRNSS and SBAS. The GNSS IP supports simultaneous multi-band L1, L2, L5 and S band signal reception when connected to a suitable RF receiver. The massive array of wide bandwidth correlators delivers higher precision coupled with fast signal acquisition in both cold, warm and hot start scenarios. The Multi-tone continuous wave interference rejection and pulsed interference rejection significantly improves performance while operate in an interference environment, for example when integrated with a 4G or NB-IOT cellular modem. The IP is extracted from a production chip and is scalable for applications ranging from high precision Automotive and Aviation to ultra-low power IoT and logistics applications. The IP is future proof, being upgradable through SW to support future planned GNSS constellations.

CSEM joins GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ FDXcelerator Program bringing ultra-low-Power IP to 22FDX process

Neuchatel, 24 September 2019 – CSEM, a leader in low-power RFIC design and embedded systems, announced today at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) annual Global Technology Conference (GTC) that CSEM is developing ultra-low power Bluetooth Low Energy® (BLE), CMOS radar mmWave IP and embedded machine-learning accelerators on GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) 22nm FD-SOI (22FDX®) platform. The combination of GF’s 22FDX and CSEM’s “IcyTRX” dual mode Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth classic RF is expected to achieve 50% lower power and 50% lower area than their existing GF 55nm BLE RF IP solution. Moreover, CSEM’s patented machine learning accelerator, called Visage, is expected to achieve more than 60% power savings and 80% area savings with 22FDX compared to 55nm, allowing for true AI edge-processing with a dedicated RISC-V processor.
