The GPS1200 is a PCI card GPS receiver designed for installation in a personal computer. It is intended for software applications where the user desires to generate custom code and take advantage of Windows or similar operating systems for a custom graphical display of the GPS receivers’ NAV solution. The GPS1200 receiver addresses the need for an economical hardware platform to do software development using raw pseudorange and ephemeris data from the GPS receiver.
The The GPS1200 hardware comes with example code in the form of post-processing routines. More specifically, the example code is not for real-time solutions but uses raw data information that is recorded and then is processed “after the fact” for a NAV solution. These examples may be used as a starting point for those wanting to construct real-time GPS data processing.
