At this year’s INTERGEO expo and conference in Stuttgart, Germany and the ION GNSS+ conference in Miami, FL, USA, Hemisphere GNSS introduced its next-generation digital ASIC, RF ASIC, interference mitigation platforms, and five all-new positioning and heading OEM boards – the first products incorporating these powerful technological advancements.
Hemisphere’s best-in-class (Lyra™ II) digital ASIC and (Aquila™) wideband RF ASIC designs optimize performance and provide the ability to track and process over 800 channels for position-only (Phantom™ series boards) and over 1,100 channels for position and heading (Vega™ series boards). This new ASIC technology offers flexible and scalable access to every modern and planned GNSS constellation and signal, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, IRNSS, SBAS, and Hemisphere’s Atlas® L-band. Signal support and tracking for AltBOC and BS-ACEBOC, BeiDou phase 2 and phase 3, L5, and QZSS/L6 (L6-D and L6-E) are also available.
The Lyra II and Aquila ASIC technology provide the foundation for a new GNSS receiver chipset architecture that significantly reduces the number of board components, thereby reducing complexity, improving reliability, and dramatically lowering power consumption. The powerful technology platform also includes Hemisphere’s new Cygnus™ interference mitigation technology with built-in digital filtering capabilities and spectrum analysis. The new Cygnus technology provides enhanced anti-jamming, interference detection, and mitigation.
