STMicroelectronics announces the impending release of Teseo II, a new generation of single-chip stand-alone positioning receivers for Portable Navigation Devices, in-car navigation and telematics applications. These Systems-on-Chips are monolithic devices capable of receiving signals from multiple satellite navigation systems, including GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS and QZSS.
Listed features include 3rd generation positioning receiver with 32 tracking channels and 2 fast acquisition channels compatible with GPS, Galileo, Glonass and QZSS systems; high performance ARM946 MCU (up to 208 MHz); 256 Kbyte embedded TCM/SRAM; FSMC external memory interface (NAND, NOR and SRAM); external SQI Flash interface; one 16-bit Extended Function Timer (EFT) with input capture/ output compare and PWM; four 32-bit free running timers/ counters; Real Time Clock (RTC) circuit; 3 UARTs (one full for modem support); 1 I2C master/slave interface; 1 Synchronous Serial Port (SSP, Motorola-SPI supported); USB2.0 dual role full speed (12 MHz) with integrated physical layer transceiver; 2 Secure-Digital Multimedia Memory Card Interfaces (SDMMC); 2 Controller Area Network (CAN); 1 Multichannel Serial Port (MSP); GPIO port for a total of up to 64 GPIOs; 8-channels ADC (10 bit), and selectable 1.8 V or 3.3 V I/Os for specific I/O ports
The data brief download is available. Full production is slated for Q3 2011. Samples will reportedly be available soon, but the TFBGA169 package means we’ll have to wait for the eval kit in order to try this one out.
