Are you Involved in GPS/GNSS Production Test?

In many production environments, a single channel GPS signal simulator is the preferred way to ensure that each device meets defined parameters. The Spirent GSS6300 Multi-GNSS Signal Generator has been designed specifically for high volume production test applications for devices that use commercial GPS/SBAS, GLONASS and/or Galileo receivers.

Controlled testing is vital in ensuring correct assembly and verification of expected performance parameters in GPS only and Multi-GNSS manufacturing environments. Spirent’s GSS6300 provides a robust single channel testing solution with the minimum of operator intervention.

The GSS6300 can be configured with one channel of a specific constellation or with multiple constellations, for example:

  • GPS only
  • GLONASS only
  • Galileo only
  • GPS and GLONASS
  • GPS and Galileo
  • GPS, GLONASS and Galileo

Some production environments, however, need the flexibility to switch between single channel and multi-channel test modes. The GSS4200 unit offers 6 channels of GPS L1 C/A code to allow a positional fix with representative satellite dynamics and data as part of the production test. For assisted GPS applications, the assistance data for each scenario is provided as standard.

While the GSS6300 and GSS4200 are well placed to test the majority of GPS receivers, there is also a need to test high-end dual frequency receivers in a production facility. The Spirent multi-channel GSS7735 has been designed specifically for testing dual-frequency L1 C/A code + P code and L2 P code GPS equipment and sensors in such manufacturing environments.
