|Atmel and u-blox Introduce Single-chip GPS Receiver with Highest Sensitivity and Low Power Consumption|
|Heilbronn, Germany and Thalwil, Switzerland - Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a global leader in the development and fabrication of advanced semiconductor solutions, and u-blox AG, a leading provider of innovative GPS receiver technology, announced today the availability of their latest weak-signal tracking GPS technology in an ultra-small form factor. The new single-chip ATR0635 measures just 7 x 10 mm, and integrates a complete ANTARIS 4 GPS receiver including ROM-based SuperSense™ software in a 96-pin BGA package. The small size plus the extremely low power consumption (62 mW in continuous power mode) make the ROM-based ATR0635 an excellent fit for handheld and mobile applications such as mobile phones, PDAs, smartphones, after-market navigational products, and recreational consumer products. Other products such as GPS 'plug-in' accessories for PCs, small GPS mice, Bluetooth® GPS devices, and other accessories equipped with GPS functionality will also enjoy the single chip's advantages in terms of small size, reduced power needs, and built-in features such as the ANTARISä 4 USB port. Its high tracking sensitivity of -158 dBm allows for weak-signal tracking in urban canyons and even indoors.|

|STMicroelectronics' SMIA-Compatible Video De-Serializer for Camera Phones Extends Mobile Multimedia Processor Capability|
Geneva - STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a world leader in CMOS image-sensor technology, has introduced the first video de-serializer interface for use with MIPI CSI-1 and SMIA CCP2 class 0 serial interfaces. The CSI-1 interface is part of the MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) standard and CCP2 class 0 is part of the SMIA (Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture), the open standard for miniature camera modules.
The new interface IC, called the STCCP27A, connects a mobile phone’s camera module with its multimedia or baseband processor. Specifically, the device allows multimedia processors that have a legacy parallel interface to take advantage of the range of new attractive SMIA-compliant camera modules, which provide an output via the CCP serial interface.
