PTC Provides New Generation GPS Dashboard Solution


PTC (Princeton Technology Corp) is pleased to announce a new GPS dashboard solution for providing navigation data, altitude information, and an accurate time clock. This new module incorporates a PT9258 GPS SoC which implements GPS wireless receiver functions and numerical computations to interface with off-chip G-sensor, M-sensor and Pressure Sensor controllers. The module is suitable for vehicle dashboard design companies and car makers.


To promote better driver safety, digital or image information provided by in-dash displays for new generation vehicles show not only fuel consumption, transmission gear, and seat belt warnings, etc., but also driving direction as well as altitude information and an accurate clock in order to help drivers traveling, for example, in unfamiliar areas, at night, or in crowded public areas such as parking structures. The traditional dashboard clock is subject to time drift and requires periodic manual adjustment to maintain accuracy over long-term use. PTC’s new solution eliminates troublesome manual adjustment of the dashboard clock by providing accurate automatic adjustment. For altitude data, PTC’s solution does not possess the disadvantage of barometer-based solutions which are often influenced by regional atmospheric pressure changes and which also may require manual adjustment.


PTC’s module solution includes the main PT9258 IC and MEMS G-sensor, M-sensor, Pressure Sensor and Power ICs, and is sized for straightforward installation into the car dashboard. With simple integration of the module and associated software, car dashboard makers can easily provide enhanced digital or image information on the dashboard display. Software support for the module is also provided for manufacturing and testing.


Through various partners, the PT9258 IC has already been introduced into China’s supply chain in Q1 this year. The PT9258 IC has passed strict tests for in-car use, and a PT9258-equipped vehicle has been launched in Q3 this year.
