Abstract: Texas Instruments has developed a multiplexing GPS receiver that has many of the advantages of a continuous receiver at the low cost of a sequencing receiver. The multiplexing concept is explained. The receiver architecture is described. Advantages of multiplexing over the conventional receiver are highlighted. Applications of the multiplexing receiver to meet requirements now being met with single-channel, two-channel, and five-channel sets are discussed. Data comparing the performance of this multiplexing to conventional approaches are presented. A multiplexing GPS receiver solves difficult problems. Several of these applications are presented, including angle determination, single-channel differential GPS, area navigation and precision approach, and geodetic surveying. All applications examined have yielded a unique advantage with the multiplexed GPS receiver over a conventional GPS receiver.
