CEVA Inc's CEVA-X digital signal processing (DSP) cores provide embedded GPS capability for portable devices using software from HuaXun Microelectronics.
HuaXun's software adds GPS capability to existing cellular baseband and multimedia SoCs without the need for hardware modification. This software approach to GPS allows low cost integration of GSP functionality into such devices, says HuaXun.
Traditional GPS solutions require a dedicated GPS processor to perform the intensive GPS computations.
In contrast, HuaXun's software-based GPS solution eliminates the need for a separate GPS engine by leveraging the performance of the CEVA-X DSP core already present in the SoC to handle the GPS computations.
