New GNSS Receiver Evaluation Software Released

u-blox announced a new GNSS evaluation software, u-center 2, running on Microsoft Windows and offering anyone working with tenth-generation u-blox GNSS technology a highly intuitive interface to configure GNSS products, evaluate their performance, improve the quality of their software, and experience the performance boost achieved using GNSS-related services.

u-center 2

u-center 2 is the successor to the u-blox u-center GNSS evaluation software, which has been available for almost two decades to design engineers developing applications using GNSS receivers. Fully compatible with the latest u-blox M10 GNSS technology, u-center 2 is designed to offer improved overall performance, as well as feature additions that simplify the configuration, evaluation, and software development of GNSS-based solutions.

u-center 2 provides personalized workspaces with adaptive window elements offering a choice of views to observe static and dynamic behavior of the connected GNSS receiver. The built-in log player, which accepts log files from the previous version of the software, features message- and time-based navigation and lets users set the playback speed, making the development of end products more efficient. Automatic updates ensure that the software always includes the latest features with minimal user effort.

Additionally, u-center simplifies the evaluation of the growing portfolio of GNSS-related location services. This includes AssistNow, through which GNSS receivers gain access to GNSS aiding data, enhancing startup performance, and saving power.

As of today, u-center 2 lets users evaluate u-blox M10 GNSS products. Its predecessor, u center, will continue to be the go-to solution for GNSS solutions based on earlier technology platforms.

u-center 2 is free for download on the company’s website.
