Crescent P206 and P207 GNSS Boards
Crescent P206 and P207 GNSS Boards
key features
Multi-Constellation Performance on a Single-Frequency Platform
• Extremely affordable single frequency, multi-constellation solution with up to 20 Hz update rate
• Uses GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou; Galileo and QZSS ready
• Fast start-up and reacquisition times allow you to get right to work
• High-precision, differential positioning accuracy of 60 cm, 95% of the time
• Exclusive e-Dif option where other differential signals are not practical
• COAST and SureTrack maintain sub-meter DGNSS positioning for 40 minutes after correction loss
• Small form and low-power consumption design is ideal for easy integration
Hemisphere GNSS’ new Crescent™ P206™ and P207™ OEM modules
use GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou, and are Galileo and QZSS ready.
Track more signals for unparalleled positioning performance even
in challenging environments. Leverage the compact size and easy
integration in your design. The 34-pin P206 module is a drop-in
upgrade for many Hemisphere products. P207 is a drop in upgrade
for existing Crescent designs using standard 20 pin modules from other
DGPS and SBAS with patented COAST™ software enables Hemisphere
receivers to utilize previous DGPS and SBAS correction data during
times of interference, signal blockage and weak signal. The receiver
will coast and continue to maintain sub-meter positioning for up to 40
minutes without any DGPS signal. When your corrections are only for
one GNSS constellation, for example GPS using SBAS, Hemisphere’s
patented SureTrack™ goes to work to model all other satellites, helping
maintain an accurate solution in challenging environments.

Cold start means no approx. position, no approx. time, no almanac, no ephemeris
Warm starts require an approx. position, approx. time, and almanac
Hot starts require an approx. position, approx. time, and valid ephemeris
Maintains time while receiver is powered off, reducing cold start occurences
