Hemisphere GNSS announced the Eclipse P328, the next offering in a line of new and refreshed, low-power, high-precision, positioning OEM boards. The multi-frequency, multi-GNSS P328 is an all signals receiver board that includes Hemisphere’s new hardware platform and integrates Atlas GNSS Global Corrections.
Designed with this new hardware platform, the overall cost, size, weight and power consumption of the P328 are reduced. It offers true scalability with centimeter-level accuracy in either single-frequency mode or full performance multi-frequency, multi-GNSS, Atlas-capable mode that supports fast RTK initialization times over long distances. The 60 millimeter x 100 millimeter module with 16- and 24-pin headers is a drop-in upgrade for existing designs using this industry standard form factor.
The latest technology platform enables simultaneous tracking of all satellite signals including GPS, GLONASS P-code, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS making it robust and reliable. The updated power management system efficiently governs the processor, memory and ASIC making it ideal for multiple integration applications. The P328 offers flexible and reliable connectivity by supporting Serial, USB (On-The-Go with future firmware upgrade), CAN and Ethernet for ease of use and integration. Optional output rates of up to 50 Hz are also supported.
Powered by the Athena GNSS engine, the P328 provides centimeter-level RTK. Athena is tested and proven, with long baselines, in open-sky environments, under heavy canopy and in geographic locations. Together with SureFix, Hemisphere’s advanced processor, the P328 delivers high-fidelity RTK quality information that results in guaranteed precision with virtually 100% reliability.
Advanced Technology Features
Integrated L-band adds support for Atlas GNSS global corrections for meter to sub decimeter-level accuracy while new Tracer technology helps maintain position during correction signal outages. The P328 also uses Hemisphere’s all-new aRTK technology, powered by Atlas. This feature allows the P328 to operate with RTK accuracies when RTK corrections fail. If the P328 is Atlas-subscribed, it will continue to operate at the subscribed service level until RTK is restored.
The P328 is ideal for land or marine survey, machine control, and any application where high-accuracy positioning is required. Hemisphere GNSS will be showcasing the all-new Eclipse P328 OEM positioning board at INTERGEO in Hamburg, Germany, October 11-13, in hall A1, stand F1.013.
