FASTRAX Ltd, represented in Australia by Glyn High-Tech Distribution , has announced the availability of the iTrax130 Development Kit for the iSuite 3 SDK.
The new iTrax130 Development Kit adds support for selected Sony GPS chipsets to the iSuite 3 Software Development Kit.
Both the iSuite 3 Software Development Kit and the iTrax130 Development Kit have been licensed to Sony Corporation.
Fastrax iSuite technology is designed for rapid modification of the features and functionality of a GPS receiver, thus reducing the time to market.
iSuite technology also enables remote on-the-fly reprogramming of GPS receiver firmware and application software. This can significantly decrease product maintenance costs and improve customer satisfaction.
With the announcement of the iTrax130 Development Kit, the iSuite 3 SDK becomes the only embedded GPS Software Development Kit available for multiple GPS chipset platforms.
In addition to existing iTrax03 Development Kit for u-Nav Microelectronics GPS chipsets, iSuite SDK users now have several chipset options available for their application platform.
"We are very pleased to announce the new iTrax130 development kit for Sony-based GPS receivers,” said President and CEO, Fastrax, Matti Räty.
“With multiple choices of software development kits for both iTrax03 and iTrax130 receiver families, the iSuite 3 SDK now provides even more powerful tools for embedded GPS application development.”
Designed for high portability and easy application development, the iTrax130 Development Kit provides all the features of iSuite 3 software, in addition to full support for JTAG debugging.
iTrax130 Development Kit users can use industrial-strength ARM RealView Developer Suite and RealView ICE development and debugging tools for efficient embedded software development.
