Does anyone know what manufacturer supplies the Galaxy S III's GPS chip? I've read a number of teardown  articles and even tried to spot it on the PCB from the photo's, but can't identify it.

Thanks for the link KevinL, most appreciated.

I was just curious as to who the major supplier of GPS devices was aside from T.I. Looks like Broadcom is a major player.
