"The ideal solution for high volume, Multi-GNSS manufacturing environments”

The GSS6300 Multi-GNSS Signal Generator has been designed specifically for high volume production test applications for devices that use commercial GPS/SBAS, GLONASS and/or Galileo receivers. Controlled testing is vital in ensuring correct assembly and verification of expected performance parameters in GPS only and Multi-GNSS manufacturing environments. Spirent’s GSS6300 provides a robust single channel testing solution with the minimum of operator intervention.

GSS6300 can be configured with one channel of a specific constellation or with multiple constellations, for example:

  • GLONASS only
  • GPS and GLONASS
  • GPS, GLONASS and Galileo

For GPS L1 C/A code test applications, the GSS6300 features, interfaces and specification are the same as the Spirent GSS6100 product that is widely specified for manufacturing test applications.

Generation of signals from the various constellations is enabled by licence key. If all licence keys are present the GSS6300 can generate a single GPS signal, a single GLONASS signal and a single Galileo signal concurrently.

The GSS6300 is designed for easy integration into production test environments. A comprehensive remote control interface enables control of the unit via standard interfaces, including IEEE488 and USB.

For operation in the laboratory, for example as a single channel precision GNSS signal generator for RF design work, a GUI-driven software utility, SimCHAN, is supplied.
