Low cost multi-channel GPS receiver
MetadataShow full item record
An investigation was conducted on compact, multichannel GPS (global positioning system) receivers. The code generator and correlation equipment were simplified, attempting to avoid downgrading the properties possessed by multichannel receivers as much as possible, and the error-increasing factors caused by such modification were examined. As a means of simplifying the receiver hardware, phases with a unit of 1/8 chip were established in the code generator. Each channel was provided with a circuit for determining correlation, and the phase differences of the carrier and the code were measured by time division. It was confirmed that sufficient accuracy of measurement can be obtained even if such simplification is carried out.
