Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a group of satellites that send out signals from their orbit to receivers on the ground that use the information to determine their location and time. The receivers then use this information to pinpoint their location. GNSS consists of three segments – space, control, and user. In this article, everything RF has listed some interesting GNSS products that were trending on the website in December 2022.
