Who knows what the future will bring? This question will be addressed this year at the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 2015 on March 24 - 26, 2015.
March 26, Session 9: PROCESSOR AND SEMICONDUCTOR TRENDS FOR GNSS RECEIVERSGNSS receiver architecture trends are reversing from host-based back to system-on-chip; to enable low-power location, processing is offloaded from the host back to the GNSS chip. A premium is placed on fast acquisition, duty cycling, low standby power and leakage currents. We will discuss these trends, also the future of Moore’s law: is it slowing down, by how much, and how much longer before we run into fundamental limits? And then what? We’ll go from chip design issues of today, to the GNSS of tomorrow, and finally we’ll peer ahead at the fundamental physics underlying theelectronics of the future.
