Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers use radio signals from orbiting satellites to determine precise ground locations, enabling advanced navigation and location-based services in a variety of mobile and consumer devices.
Broadcom has an extensive portfolio of standalone GNSS receiver chips and combination GNSS receiver and Sensor Hub -- or Location Hub -- chips, with over 1 billion GNSS chips sold globally.
In addition to the GNSS receiver chips, Broadcom provides Assisted-GNSS (A-GNSS) and Long Term Orbits (LTO) services. These services are provided from highly reliable cloud-based servers that are fed from a proprietary World-Wide Reference Network (WWRN) stations that collect world-wide GNSS satellite data.
