The GNSS Receiver DB from Rakon is a GNSS Receiver that is designed for SmallSats and nanosatellites. It supports multiple bands and multiple constellations which enables this daughter-board receiver to process signals from up to 448 channels simultaneously and provides high-performance position, velocity, and timing. This receiver has a Daughter Board format and can be easily integrated into a motherboard or directly into space equipment. It supports passive and active antennas, has time to first fix (TTFF) of less than 45 seconds, a positioning accuracy of 1.2 m, and a velocity accuracy of 3 cm/s. This receiver has a tracking performance of 20 dB-Hz and an acquisition performance of 33 dB-Hz.
The GNSS Receiver DB requires a DC supply of 3.3 V and consumes less than 1.1 W of power. It includes UART, USB, and GPIO interfaces and also provides 1PPS signal output. This receiver is available in a module that measures 55 x 41 x 16 mm with MMCX (female) antenna connector. It is a compact off-the-shelf GNSS Receiver and is quality controlled according to IPC-A-610 Class 3.
