GSG Applications Tip
Many GPS receivers supply power on its GPS antenna connection. Customers will often ask how this will effect the simulator. Our GPS simulators offer internal DC-blocking up to 7 VDC (470 ohm nominal load). We are currently adding this note as a specification on each model's datasheet.
Spectracom continues to generate marketing content to aid in the promotion of our GPS simulators. A few recent pieces that may be useful for marketing and sales efforts:
1. An article by CTO, John Fischer, describes the trend toward dual-GNSS receivers for the automotive market. The article "Navigating with more than GPS" can be found on Penton media's web portal, Automotive Electronics.
2. As an introduction to GPS simulation Spectracom has created a white paper titled "What is a GPS Simulator". The pdf is available for download from the public web site.
