Multi-band GNSS RF receiver technology enables global positioning devices to acquire parallel signals in all frequency bands from the GPS, GLONASS and Galileo systems. The patent – number US7'358'896 – covers NemeriX’s fully programmable single frequency synthesizer innovation and has been awarded in the US.
The integrated receiver reduces silicon size and optimizes cost by enabling a single RF front-end receiver to synchronously acquire up to three different frequency bands – eliminating the need to implement three parallel receivers. The cost of a receiver is about $1 today.
“Originally developed to address the high-end and space market, this innovation from NemeriX will allow customers to efficiently address future consumer applications, as new services in different bands – such as L2C – are released to support improved performance for commercial GPS/GNSS applications”, said NemeriX.
