VersaLogic offers high-precision GPS in Mini PCIe format
(Tualatin, Oregon – November 15, 2017) – VersaLogic has released an industrial temperature GPS module that provides access to multiple satellite systems. It offers higher accuracy than previous models, for both location and timing data. Its multi-channel capability also allows better accuracy and coverage in difficult environments such as cityscape / building canyons.
“The need for enhanced accuracy and precision timing data is growing in embedded computing. The G3 has time pulse accuracy that is less than 20ns when outdoors and 0.5 seconds indoors.” said Kerry Howell, VersaLogic Product Manager. “When combined with its ability to use multiple satellite systems simultaneously, the G3 becomes a very valuable positioning tool.”
This advanced GPS receiver provides two simultaneous receiver paths with 72-channel operation for stable satellite tracking, as well as aided startup for fast initial signal acquisition. Increased coverage is provided by support for the GPS (United States), GLONASS (Russian), Galileo (European Union), and BeiDou (China) systems.
In addition to positioning and navigation applications, GPS/GNSS signals are widely used as precision time or frequency references for remote or distributed wireless communication, industrial, financial, and power-distribution equipment.
The G3’s extremely small Mini PCIe format allows it to be added to a system with very little impact to the overall size of the system. The G3 is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, and Linux using standard software drivers.
Designed, Manufactured and Tested for Extreme Environments
The G3 is designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration. It is RoHS compliant, and includes VersaLogic’s 5+ year production life guarantee.
The G3 is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, etc.
As with all VersaLogic products, the VL-MPEu-G3 is designed for high reliability and long-term availability. From application design-in support, to its 5+ year production life guarantee, the VL-MPEu-G3 provides durable GPS expansion.
