The Spirent GSS6100 is designed specifically for high volume manufacturing test applications for devices that include a GPS L1 C/A code receiver. For many applications, a single channel GPS signal simulator is the preferred way to ensure that each device produced meets defined parameters. While multi-channel GPS testing is essential during R&D, integration and verification testing, in a manufacturing environment many applications prefer a single channel to stimulate the receiver in a test mode. Controlled GPS testing in this way assures correct assembly and verifies expected performance parameters, typically C/No within a specified range for a given RF input power level.
1 channel GPS L1 C/A code
GPIB (IEEE488), USB or RS232 control interfaces
Alternative instant start mode at power-on, based on pre-defined parameter values
User control over test parameters including power level, Doppler, PRN, GPS time and data message
Rack mount 2U chassis
Comprehensive control ICD for easy integration into manufacturing test rigs
