GPS L1 C/A SIGNAL GENERATOR
A Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite simulator is essential in factory testing to verify the correctness and the performances of the manufactured GPS receivers.
WisyGPS-S is a collection of NI LabVIEW® VI’s to generate single L1 C/A GPS satellite streams for GPS receivers test in manufacturing, quality insurance and R&D applications.
WisyGPS-M, in combination with WisyPlay and NI GPS toolkit, exploits the NI PXIe-5641R IF-RIO dual player features providing multi-satellite data streams.
GPS signals are generated according to the ICD-GPS-200C document.
WisyGPS’s are compliant with the WisyPlay kit that is composed by the NI PXI-5610 RF Upconverter and the NI PXIe-5641R IF Transceiver.
WisyGPS-M allows the user to generate GPS Waveforms by exploiting the NI GPS LabVIEW® Toolkit by National Instruments™ and the WisyPlay kit.
WisyGPS-M converts any kind of GPS pattern generated with the NI GPS Toolkit to be played with WisyPlay.
