CSR sponsors Cambridge Wireless event and attends ISQED


Cambridge, UK

CSR (LSE: CSR) can today announce two events in March that it will be attending.

14 March 2011: International Symposium on Quality Electronics Design, Santa Clara, US

On the 14 of March CSR’s Amit Kumar will be presenting at the Verification of Power Managed Wireless Systems on Chips tutorial. The tutorial focuses on the power management architecture of a GPS chip targeted at the mobile sector that includes a power controller, a power switch matrix, two switch power domains and some always-on-blocks.

Amir Kumar will be joined by other industry experts to discuss the verification challenges faced in designing the GPS chip including, amongst others, RTL modelling of power switches, isolation and level-shifting cells. - no3_

23 March 2011: Cambridge Wireless Location Based Systems/Services SIG; Cambridge, UK

CSR is sponsoring and hosting this special LocationSIG event at the global HQ, Churchill House, in Cambridge.
In association with Anglia Ruskin University, the agenda explores the sensitive issue of privacy vs. personalised services. Most smartphones have built in GPS, and an increasing number of applications make use of this location capability; with this real and exciting development of new technology comes the time to debate the implications for personal privacy.

CSR’s Chief Marketing Officer Kanwar Chadha will be one of the keynote speakers and will talk about relevant location in a locationaware, connected world. The world is moving from using location information for just professional and navigation applications, to an environment where location is starting to add context to a broad range of information. With a large amount of data in the cloud accessible globally from a broad range of devices, adding localisation context to information is becoming more important. However this brings up issues of privacy protection and quality of service. To address these issues we need to think about the concept of relevant location, which takes into account the personalisation aspects of location, the accuracy requirements and privacy filters.

Speakers alongside Kanwar Chadha include Dr. Andrew Matthews from Nokia Research Centre, Patrick Clark from Taylor Wessing, Professor Jonathan Raper, Founder & Managing Director of Placr and Dr David Skinner from Anglia Ruskin University.
