Tech 101 from Symmetry Electronics: What is GNSS?

Jul 21, 2017
 

GNSS is an acronym for Global Navigation Satellite System, the standard generic term for satellite navigation systems that provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. This term includes GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and other regional systems. GNSS is a term used worldwide. The advantage to having access to multiple satellites is accuracy, redundancy and limited downtime. Though satellite systems don't often fail, if one fails GNSS receivers can pick up signals from other systems.  Also if line of sight is obstructed, having access to multiple satellites is also a benefit.  

Symmetry Electronics carries many GPS/GNS products. Complete GNSS receiver modules including memory, LNA, TCXO, and RTC and optional embedded antenna which reduces the integration efforts for our customers.
