e-Navigation: Multi-GNSS Receiver Chips Coming

Press Release
Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Furuno say new multi-GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver chips "eRideOPUS 6" and "eRideOPUS 7" will be available from summer 2013.

The new receiver chips are multi-GNSS compliant single-chip LSIs, capable of concurrently receiving signals from multiple satellites of GNSS systems, i.e., GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, etc., and Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) as well as Japan's Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). 


The ability to concurrently receive GNSS and GNSS augmentation signals from multiple satellites belonging to different satellite services means that the receivers have a higher probability of acquiring a greater number of satellites at any single point in time. Subsequently, position stability as well as position accuracy will be greatly improved, minimizing the chance of a position loss. In addition, the receiver chips incorporate an enhanced level of noise rejection capability, through the implementation of an Active Anti-Jamming and an Advanced Multipath Mitigation functions.


In May 2013, Furuno will start supplying evaluation kits for the new receiver chips to allow third-party manufacturers to evaluate the benefits of incorporating these receiver chips into their products. In August 2013, the new compact GNSS receiver modules GN-86F and GN-87F as well as the dead-reckoning-capable GNSS receiver modules GV-86 and GV-87, build around these new receiver chips, will be available for integration into automotive navigation systems as well as Telematics and eCall systems.
