Spirent Enables GPS, Multi-GNSS Integration in Consumer Devices with New Entry Level Test System

Spirent Communications today introduced the GSS6300M range of multi-channel GPS and multi-GNSS simulators for receiver integrators, application developers, aftercare and production testing environments. This entry-level test system readily enables laboratory evaluation of GPS performance across different locations and routes. In addition to being very easy-to-use, even for non-GPS experts, the GSS6300M range features competitive pricing for engineering teams looking to integrate positioning functionality to new classes of consumer electronic devices.

The GSS6300M is a “one-box” solution with everything required to start testing immediately and can be controlled from a tablet or smartphone, or via remote commands across multiple interfaces. It enables a variety of fundamental test and compliance to industry standard. Users can create custom trajectories using a Google Maps® interface to help evaluate receiver performance.

The GSS6300M offers the same preeminent signal quality as other Spirent test systems, which are used by governments and space agencies around the world. High fidelity test equipment ensures the highest user experiences, leading to improved customer satisfaction, reduced product returns and greater market success for integrators and application teams.
