Trimble and u-Nav Microelectronics Corp. have forged an alliance to jointly develop and market integrated GPS chipsets and software solutions. The new solutions will incorporate Trimble's proven core GPS software and u-Nav's ultra low-power GPS chipsets.

As part of this alliance, Trimble will be licensing GPS software and providing technical support and training to customers using the combined chipset and software solutions. Trimble's core GPS software has been under continuous refinement in actual field use for more than 10 years.

The software is currently shipping in embedded, automotive and timing products. Trimble core GPS software provides both standalone and assisted GPS (A-GPS) operation. The software includes Trimble's tightly integrated Kalman Filter that supports Trimble's optional sensor assisted (dead reckoning) algorithms. The parties expect to finalize a definitive agreement within the next three months.
