GSG Series GPS/GNSS Simulators

Spectracom GSG Series GPS/GNSS Simulators

GPS Simulators Overview

Our GPS/GNSS satellite simulators are easy to use, scenario-based instruments that combine a powerful, feature-rich platform with industry-leading value and affordability for any requirement for GPS testing.

Spectracom GSG series simulators generate the same RF signals that are broadcast by navigation satellites to test any device or system with a GPS receiver. Several different configurations are available but all are upgradeable to add capability as your needs for GPS testing grows.

Spectracom GSG-51 Single Channel GNSS

Single-channel GPS/GNSS L1 RF Generator

The GSG-51 is a GNSS signal generator that emulates a single satellite signal. The main application is a simple but very fast manufacturing test, to assure that the assembly is correct, that the antenna is properly connected, and that the receiver can receive and identify a satellite signal. It provides a fast and cost-effective solution for production test of GNSS-receivers in e.g. mobile phones with integrated GNSS-receivers. Thanks to the wide RF level range from –65 to –160 dBm, the sensitivity of all types of GNSS receivers can be verified with a minimum of delay. The 60 dB of extra power from normal test scenarios allows from splitting the signal many times.

Easy to Use

GSG-51 users can configure settings without the need for an external PC and pre-compilation phase. Via the front panel, the user can swiftly modify parameters such as satellite ID, time and power output. The front panel can be locked out to prevent accidental power down or configuration changes. Once initiated the unit can simulate for 31 days continuously (or indefinitely if the unit is connected to the internet).

Flexibility

As the base model of the popular 5 Series GNSS Simulator family, this affordable unit can be upgraded at any time after purchase to increase the channel count, add receiver trajector
