Hemisphere GNSS: All signals receiver board

Hemisphere GNSS has announced the Eclipse P328, the next offering in a line of new and refreshed, low-power, high-precision, positioning OEM boards.

The multifrequency, multi-GNSS P328 is an all signals receiver board that includes Hemisphere’s new hardware platform and integrates Atlas® GNSS Global Corrections.

Designed with the new hardware platform, the overall cost, size, weight and power consumption of the P328 are reduced. It offers true scalability with centimeter-level accuracy in either single-frequency mode or full performance multifrequency, multi-GNSS, Atlas-capable mode that supports fast RTK initialization times over long distances.

The 60-mm-by-100-mm module with 24-pin and 16-pin headers is a drop-in upgrade for existing designs using this industry standard form factor.

The latest technology platform enables simultaneous tracking of all satellite signals including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS — making it robust and reliable.

The updated power management system efficiently governs the processor, memory, and ASIC making it ideal for multiple integration applications. The P328 offers flexible and reliable connectivity by supporting serial, USB (On-The-Go with future firmware upgrade), CAN, and Ethernet for ease of use and integration. Optional output rates of up to 50 Hz are also supported.

The P328 is "ideal" for positive train control systems and any application where high-accuracy positioning is required, Hemisphere officials said.
