NT1066 EVK

NT1066 EVK is intended for prototyping of navigation receivers based on NT1066: 4-Channel RF FrontEnd IC (3 wideband IQ and 1 narrowband IQ) that covers all GNSS (GLONASS, GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, NavIC) signals at all frequency bands (L1, L2, L3, L5, E1, E5a, E5b, E6, B1, B2, B3 and S) and can be ‘on a fly’ software-reconfigured to receive real-time corrections data transmitted over FM, VHF and UHF bands. NT1066_EVK can be also used as evaluation platform for performance and capabilities demonstration of NT1066.

Key features

IO ports:

  • Three 50Ω SMA input connectors for L1, L2, L3, L5 bands of GNSS signal reception (recommended for passive or low gain antennas)
  • Three 50Ω SMA input connectors for L1, L2, L3, L5 bands of GNSS signal reception (recommended for active antennas)
  • 50Ω SMA input connector for S band or L2, L3, L5 bands of GNSS signals receiving
  • 50Ω SMA input connector for real-time corrections data reception
  • Every channel individual IF output ready to connect either as digital or analog differential signal, single-ended IF outputs are also available as output data interface extension
  • FMC LPC connector compatible to PicoZed FMC Carrier V2 and FPGA development boards: ZC706/ML605/Arria V GX and other boards with LPC//HPC connector
  • SMA input connector for external reference frequency
  • External sampling frequency input ready to connect either as CMOS, LVDS or single-ended sinewave
  • Clock output ready to connect either as CMOSLVDS or single-ended sinewave
  • Embedded USB to SPI convertor for NT1066 registers configuration

On-board reference frequency source:

  • 10 MHz 0.28ppm high-stability TCXO

Additional modules:

  • 1-to-4 RF splitter (under development)
  • Analog unbalanced output data interface
  • Digital LVDS output data interface
