Hemisphere GPS has announced the latest addition to its product line, Eclipse dual-frequency GPS receiver technology.

Based on Hemisphere GPS' Crescent L1 GPS technology that incorporates techniques for reducing code-measurement noise and mitigating multipath signals, Eclipse delivers reliable centimeter-level accuracy. The performance and versatility of Hemisphere GPS' Eclipse board allows OEM customers to integrate it into a variety of precise applications, including navigation and GPS machine control. Depending upon the application, Eclipse users can record and post-process GPS data or choose from several differential solutions including Real-Time Kinematic, OmniSTAR (HP/XP) and SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS).

Eclipse receiver technology offers several other advantages to the OEM integrator, including integrated L-Band tracking that powers down when not in use, multiple serial and USB ports and upgradeable firmware.

Eclipse receiver technology is currently available as an OEM module and evaluation kit. Hemisphere GPS will also integrate Eclipse into some of its existing GPS receiver products and plans to introduce a variety of new Eclipse-based products in 2008.
