STMicroelectronics' Cartesio automotive-grade application processor SoC with embedded GPS will be implemented inside several products from Garmin, including the company's new n?vi 205 navigation system.

The Cartesio SoC is a derivative of ST's Nomadik application processor platform, and takes full advantage of Nomadik's A/V capabilities for infotainment applications. The Nomadik platform is also used by some of the world's leading cellphone makers and mobile multimedia consumer manufacturers to develop smartphones, mobile TV products, and feature-rich portable multimedia devices and players.

"Cartesio is currently one of the most integrated solutions on the navigation and telematics market, providing high performance, while also meeting the cost and space constraints demanded by leading automotive OEMs," remarked Domenico Rossi, general manager of ST's car radio and multimedia division.
