SiRF Technology Supplies Location Technology for Motorola's First 3G Devices PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 02 October 2002

SiRF Technology, Inc. today announced it has signed an agreement with Motorola, in which Motorola's Personal Communications Sector (PCS) will integrate SiRF's global positioning system (GPS) chipsets, as well as its SiRFLoc(TM) Multimode location technology, into select Motorola 3G devices. SiRF's technology will enable these phones, which will be introduced in some European and Asian markets later this year, with location-based capability.

Specifically, SiRF's new SiRFstarIIe/LP GPS chipset will be used in select Motorola 3G devices, while SiRFLoc Multimode location technology will deliver position information with minimum need for network bandwidth. SiRF's chipset and software technology will allow these devices to determine their position in a wide range of operating environments -- a prerequisite for supporting commercial location-based services (LBS) to consumers.

"The always-connected, high-bandwidth environment of 3G is a perfect place for the development of location-based services," according to Kanwar Chadha, founder and vice president of business development for SiRF. "Motorola is committed to providing its customers and the marketplace with handsets that support these enhanced services. We are happy to be teamed with them in introducing this technology."
