Hemisphere GPS Introduces New miniEclipse™ Compact OEM Modules with GNSS Support
CALGARY, March 28, 2012 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) Today, Hemisphere GPS announces the Eclipse™ P300 and Eclipse P301 OEM modules – the next generation high-performance compact modules for RTK GNSS applications. Based on new Hemisphere GPS multi-function application firmware and Eclipse GNSS multi-constellation technology, P300 and P301 provide the ability for tracking commercially available GNSS signals for precise positioning.
P300 is a drop-in board replacement for Hemisphere GPS’ successful Crescent® L1 board as well as the first-generation miniEclipse P200 GPS-only OEM board. P301 is our 20-pin OEM module configured as a drop-in replacement for a different industry standard interface. Eclipse P300 and P301 improve GNSS positioning performance, particularly with RTK applications, through Hemisphere GPS’ patent-pending SureTrack® technology. Benefits include extended and more robust RTK solutions as the rover RTK receiver will process all available signals even if they are not common with the base receiver. RTK solutions are therefore better maintained in challenging environments, with baselines of up to 50 km, and reacquisition times are improved resulting in more robust overall performance.
