MWC 2009: Interview with Cambridge Silicon Radio



CSR has been in the news a lot recently, Lutz had a chance to see them at CES, but we were unable to get a full interview. This changed at MWC when we had full access to the techie guys who explained the new eGPS facilities and also gave us the inside details of their new chipsets. CSR are focusing on the consolidation of functionality into single chipsets. This has the advantage of lower density on board, and also the ability to use a combination of signal types for positioning, hence the eGPS. Not for the weak hearted CSR showed us an implementation of the CSR chipset in a TomTom. They had ripped out the GPS chip from the TomTom and replaced it with their own chip which is a lot smaller and more power efficient.
