Nestwave has developed an ultra-low power, advanced global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) system for use in IoT applications. When integrated with an IoT modem such as NB-IoT, Cat M1, LoRa or Sigfox, the IP offers low-cost geolocation for emerging applications such as asset tracking, smart factories, and smart cities, without the need for an external GNSS chip.
"Emerging IoT applications are demanding geolocation functionality with high-accuracy and ultra-low power consumption," said John Koeter, senior vice president of marketing and strategy for IP at Synopsys. "The combination of Synopsys' ARC IoT Communications IP Subsystem with Nestwave's GNSS technology will help designers significantly improve geolocation performance, reduce frequency requirements and lower overall power consumption for battery-powered IoT applications."
