SkyTraq Introduces Compact-Sized GLONASS/GPS Receiver Print E-mail
Written by SkyTraq   
Friday, 25 March 2011

Hsinchu, Taiwan, March 28, 2011 ó SkyTraq introduces a compact 25mmx25mm, high-performance low-power GLONASS/GPS receiver. It is compatible to a popular 25mmx25mm-sized GPS receiver model, user can use it as direct drop-in replacement to upgrade their existing GPS product into a high performance GLONASS/GPS product instantly without any hardware redesign effort; just needing to use a GLONASS/GPS antenna instead. It offers a simple migration path for GPS system companies leaping ahead to offer GLONASS/GPS products.

The new GLONASS/GPS receiver features industry-leading 29 second cold start TTFF, -145dBm cold starting and -159dBm navigation sensitivity; offering best-in-class performance among GLONASS/GPS receivers available on the market. It is capable of operating in 12 tracking channel GPS-only mode, 12 tracking channel GLONASS-only mode, and 24 tracking channel GLONASS + GPS mode. Advanced 24 channel GLONASS/GPS track engine enables continuous navigation using signals down to -159dBm, combining multipath detection and mitigation algorithm; it is capable of continuous accurate navigation in difficult urban canyon and deep foliage environments. It is ideal for navigation and tracking applications requiring high-performance GLONASS/GPS dual-satellite navigation technology.

Volume delivery to customers begins in May 2011. Engineering sample, datasheet, and evaluation kits are available now.
