Athletes are in for a ball as more energy is directed to develop new and better GPS Chip Set Architecture to reduce power consumption and body size. Rakon from New Zealand has now announced the smallest ever GPS chip set (Thanks to Engadget).
It appear to be somewhat smaller in size than the successful SiRFstarIII (10mm x 7mm x 1,4mm) chip set. We do however lack any performance values for the new Rakon GPS, but we may have some during this year as new products could be launched.
gpsOne from cellular technology provider Qualcomm Inc. is an older, but also a very interesting development.
Moore's Law is at the moment valid for GPS Chip Sets, and combined with improved power technology and antenna architecture will GPS devices soon be almost as common as your pair of running snickers! What's next?
