Hardware and Software Design

We specialise  in the provision of electronic designs and software for GNSS systems such as GPS, Glonass and Galileo. We can take product designs right through from product inception to quantity manufacturing

PCB Design and Layout:

At iNS we use the latest tools and techniques to rapidly produce PCBs. Coupled with over 30 man-years of experience this ensures rapid PCB generation with a right-first-time solution.

  • Cadence OrCAD / Allegro PCB Design Suite - Leading edge CAD tools
  • Experience covers analogue, RF (typically 1.5GHz and 2.4GHz) and digital layout
  • Incorporate fine-pitch miniature CSP devices to large-scale BGAs containing in excess of 1150 pins
  • Direct wire bonding, CoB & MCM experience
  • High-volume product design considerations (DFM/DFT)
  • High-speed, EMI and controlled impedance


At iNS we have been involved in GNSS software at all levels, from simply taking NMEA outputs and using them in real time applications to in-depth modification of software tracking loops and developing embedded code. Examples include:

  • Recording and Playing back GNSS RF data
  • WAAS/EGNOS development and implementation
  • Network Assistance for Assisted GPS, including base stations.
  • GNSS Control (power, sleep modes)
  • Steering of oscillators for high accuracy time and frequency outputs used in timing and synchronization systems (Rubidium, OCXO, TCXO)
  • Processor Porting (ARM, LINUX)
  • Over the Air Upgrades
