NVS Technologies AG Launches the NV08C-Mini PCI-E Embedded Mini PCI Express GNSS Receiver


Montlingen, Switzerland and Nashville, USA – Sept. 20th, 2012 - NVS Technologies AG, announces today from the ION-GNSS 2012 Conference in Nashville, USA, the launch of the “NV08C-Mini PCI-E” Embedded Mini PCI Express GNSS Receiver.

The NV08C-Mini PCI-E is a fully integrated GNSS receiver module, optimised for Mini PCI Express (Mini-PCIe) based applications. Its key feature is its full compatibility with GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS, COMPASS (GNSS), and EGNOS, WAAS, MSAS and GAGAN (SBAS). It is specifically designed for use in a wide range of mobile computing, in-vehicle and rugged handheld computer equipment, for the Security/Public Safety, Telematics/Fleet Management, and Precision GIS/survey, machine control and agriculture markets.

·        Embedded Mini PCI Express GNSS Receiver
·        Very quick and simple integration
·        Precise navigation, positioning and timing
·        32 GNSS tracking channels / 200K correlators - Ensuring fast TTFF and high signal sensitivity
·        NMEA 0183 / IEC 61162-1, binary (BINR) and RTCM SC-104 v2.3 data protocols
·        Raw Data output - Pseudorange, Carrier phase and Doppler
·        Individual GLONASS group delay calibration - Assuring very high accuracy
·        Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) / Assisted GNSS (A-GNSS) interface
·        64 KB EEPROM for firmware upgrade and data storage
·        Industrial operating temperature range ‐40 to +85°C

The NV08C-Mini PCI-E offers high sensitivity, high performance acquisition and tracking, NMEA and raw data outputs, plus Differential (D-GNSS) and Assisted GNSS (A-GNSS) functions. It features 2 RF channels (GPS and GLONASS), 3-stage SAW filtration for high noise immunity, as well as several protocol interfaces and a supply voltage source for an active antenna. This fully featured embedded Mini PCI-e GNSS receiver is the quickest-to-market solution for mobile computing applications.
