UART, GPs This application note shows how to combine a GPs module SC16C2552B into a navigation system by using a Philips UART With the rapid development of GPs (Global Positioning System) techniques, GPs gets wider application in many fields. GPs has features such as high precision, global coverage, convenience, high quality and low cost. Recently
, the use of GPs extends speedily from military to civilian applications such as automobile navigation systems which combine the GPs system, e-map, and Wireless network. GPs is getting popular, and the market for GPs techniques is extending continuously. Figure 1 is a typical diagram of an automobile navigation system.
