Simulate Now - Testing Without a Cold Reset
Technical & Application Notes
Normally, a cold reset on a Global Positioning System is a navigation satellite system. See also/GNSS receiver under test is required to fully clear previous data to allow a new set of parameters to be used in a simulation. However, when a Global navigation satellite system (GNSS): A general term describing any satellite constellation that provides positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services on a global or regional basis. See also receiver is embedded in a product or is being tested on an assembly line, cold resetting a receiver is not always practical. Spectracom GPS/GNSS simulators have the ability to “Simulate Now”. It will use the current date/time to match the receiver. It will also match its almanac data to allow for fast testing without the need for a cold reset.
