Hemisphere GNSS reveals new, improved Eclipse OEM boards

June 22, 2016  - By

Hemisphere GNSS has announced the Eclipse P326 and P327, first in a line of new and refreshed low-power, high-precision, position and heading OEM boards. The boards are the latest addition to the company’s Eclipse series of products.

The multi-frequency, multi-GNSS Eclipse P326 and P327 are based on an innovative platform that integrates L-band and receives Atlas GNSS corrections on a single small board, the company said. Designed with this new platform, the overall cost, size, weight and power consumption of the P326 and P327 are significantly reduced.

The P326 and P327 support 394 channels and are scalable board solutions that offer centimeter-level accuracy in either single-frequency or full performance multi-frequency, multi-GNSS, Atlas-capable mode.

The small form factor (41 x 71 millimeters) 34-pin P326 module is a drop-in upgrade for many Hemisphere products. The P327 module (41 x 72 millimeters) is a drop-in upgrade for standard 20-pin modules from other manufacturers.

“Our continuous commitment to innovation in GNSS solutions allows our OEM partners to take their products to the next level,” said Jennifer Keenan, product marketing manager at Hemisphere GNSS. “With integrated L-band for Atlas support, future output rates of 50 Hz, and tracking of 394 channels in such a small form factor, our OEM boards have never been this appealing to system integrators.”

The latest technology platform enables simultaneous tracking of all satellite signals including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS, which the company said makes it a robust and reliable solution, while the updated power-management system efficiently governs the processor, memory and ASIC — important for multiple integration applications such as handheld and battery-powered devices.
