Hemisphere GNSS Announces New Eclipse P306 and P307 OEM Positioning Modules

The Eclipse P306 and P307 are the first products to utilize the company’s new SX4 ASIC. Capable of simultaneously tracking code and phase signals on 89 satellites, SX4 boasts 372 channels and can be configured to address several diverse applications through software.

Smaller than a business card, the Eclipse P306 upgrades existing designs using Hemisphere’s standard 34 pin modules. The Eclipse P307 is a drop-in upgrade for designs based on the industry accepted 20 pin module. Both products offer scalable performance. RTK accuracy is achieved in either single or dual frequency mode. When subscribed for multi-frequency, multi-constellation RTK, Eclipse receivers have fast RTK initialization times even over long distances.

“While the Eclipse P306 and P307 provide outstanding RTK performance,” commented Dr. Mike Whitehead, Chief Technology Officer of Hemisphere GNSS, “non-RTK users benefit from our COAST, SureTrack™, and HeadStart technologies.” COAST and SureTrack work together to maintain sub-meter positioning for 40 minutes when differential corrections are lost. HeadStart reduces the occurrence of cold starts by keeping time while the receiver module is powered off, providing faster startup times.

Support of the Chinese BeiDou GNSS constellation is significant. The BeiDou constellation not only fully covers China, but extends beyond, covering 2/3 of the world’s land mass, benefiting 5.8 billion people. Coverage currently includes Asia, Australia, New Zealand to South Africa, Europe and all of Russia, as well as Hawaii with, on average, three or more BeiDou satellites visible above 15°.

In February 2013, Hemisphere GPS changed its name to Hemisphere GNSS Inc. after parting ways with its Agriculture unit. While both names are owned by the company, in order to reflect the company’s support of all Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and update the company’s image, “Hemisphere” has been adopted as its brand name. The company also has adopted a new logo and has launched an updated website; www.HemisphereGNSS.com.

Hemisphere will be introducing the new Eclipse P306 and P307 OEM positioning modules at the annual InterGEO conference in Essen, Germany, October 8th-10th, 2013 at Booth #A3.070.
