STMicroelectronics and Allystar to Develop GNSS Applications and Solutions

STMicroelectronics has recently announced that they have joined hands with Allystar to develop and market GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) solutions for automotive products and other applications. Allystar is a spin-off from CEC Huada Electronic Design Co. Ltd. and a leading Chinese GNSS chip designer.

GNSS solutions and technologies, including China’s BeiDou navigation system, are playing an ever-increasing role in many different domains, related to smart mobility. Specifically, enhanced-precision location technology enabled by multi-constellation GNSS solutions, in combination with radars, cameras, and various sensors, will be a key enabler for autonomous cars.

ST and Allystar are already co-marketing highly reliable products for the automotive market so the addition of GNSS solutions to their portfolio will fit in well with this.
