Santa Clara– Magellan Announces the Launch of a New OEM Board, the MB 500. This product brings to the embedded GNSS board market a unique blend of technologies that increases RTK reliability and assures inter-compatibility with other brands of GNSS receivers.

Utilizing Magellan’s BLADE Technology, the MB 500 board has the ability to provide the most reliable solutions from three constellations: GPS, GLONASS and SBAS. Working seamlessly with any base or reference station from any manufacturer, the MB 500 utilizes all available GLONASS corrections without suffering from the interchannel GLONASS biases that can affect other manufacturer’s receivers. The board itself makes all the checks and corrections needed to mitigate these signal instabilities

“We have introduced a unique and unbeatable GNSS signal processing technology which delivers highly accurate and reliable positioning” says Robert Snow, Product Marketing Director of Magellan Professional. “Magellan plans to strongly re-enter the high-end OEM board business with this board, which is the heart of our highly successful ProMark 500 GNSS Survey System.”

The MB 500 features low power consumption in a compact board design as well as a large variety of output messages with many different data formats, creating an extensive OEM solution. The MB 500 multi-constellation board is available as a base and as a rover and supports standard and advanced RTK operations using RTCM 2.3 or 3.1 format, as well as or our proprietary ATOM format.

The MB 500 will be available for evaluation in Q4 2008 and in quantity in Q1 2009.
