Seeking to bolster its position in the mobile chip business, Intel has snapped up the GPS mobile navigation division of failed semiconductor partnership ST-Ericsson for an undisclosed sum. ST-Ercisson announced the sale on Tuesday without naming the buyer, but Reuters later reported that an Intel spokesperson confirmed Chipzilla …
The Conservative govt of the time sold Inmos to ST. They had generated software GPS decoding on a transputer and simultaneous acquisition of multiple satellites in the early 90s, at a time when everyone thought only a multi channel dedicated ASIC could run the process fast enough.
Re: A tragedy.
Don't worry, that INMOS GPS activity is still going in ST Bristol, the team and products of ST-Ericsson are completely seperate.
Close but no cigar
Inmos was sold to Thorn-EMI; I doubt that ST had even merged back then. (FWIW ST-Ericsson has been described as "an attempt to make an eagle by slamming two turkeys together very fast")
