Products that include Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation functionality are emerging as a consumer favorite, with the technology being integrated into personal navigation devices (PNDs), mobile phones and other mobile devices.

GPS systems use faint radio signals from orbiting satellites to determine precise ground locations, enabling advanced navigation and location-based services in next-generation mobile products. In addition, GPS receivers can provide vital location information for emergency personnel. GPS solutions based on Broadcom technology are shipping today in PND products from the leading device makers with future products positioned to leverage Broadcom's deep portfolio of complementary mobile technology products.
