The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a network of satellites that broadcast time and orbital information for navigation and location measurements. GNSS plays an important role in our lives, from communications networks to mobile navigation apps like Google Maps. GPS, developed by the United States was the most post popular GNSS solution used for many years, however now other countries and groups have developed their own version of GPS - These include GLONASS (Russia), Galileo (Europe), BeiDou (China), QZSS (Japan), IRNSS (India), etc. everything RF has been covering new product launches in the GNSS sector through 2021.
This article lists trending GNSS products on everything RF in 2021. To view more GNSS-related content and products, visit the GNSS Hub on everything RF. We keep users up to date with new products, news, whitepapers, webinars, and events in this sector.
