The module GPSGEN1575 has been designed to reconvert the intermediate frequency of 35.42MHz transmitted on the antenna cable of Meinberg GPS clocks to the GPS frequency of 1575.42MHz. This technology allows the connection of GPS receivers of other manufacturers working without IF-technique to a Meinberg antenna with up to 300m of coaxial cable RG58 (or even up to 600m with RG213) without the need of an additional amplifier. Besides the signal conditioning the eurocard includes a complete GPS receiver, which can be used as a reference in test applications.

GPS Optical Antenna Link
The Meinberg GPS Optical Antenna Link provides a long-distance connection between a Meinberg GPS antenna and a Meinberg GPS receiver using a GI50/125µm or GI62.5/125µm multimode optical fiber.
The GPS antenna combines a planar antenna and a frequency converter, which translates the high-frequency phase-modulated spread spectrum signal of the GPS system to an intermediate frequency. This way a standard coaxial cable (e.g. RG58) can be used for the connection with the GPS clock and a distance of up to 300 meters (with RG58) or even 700 meters (with a low-loss cable type like RG213) between receiver and antenna is possible without additional amplifier.
