Abstract We analyze results from using a temperature-sensing MEMS oscillator as frequency source for the front end of a software-based GNSS receiver. Results show that although MEMS oscillators are highly sensitive to temperature, GNSS receivers can still make use of them even without any form of temperature information or compensation. Nevertheless, using a temperature sensor in close proximity to the resonator can significantly decrease acquisition time and improve tracking performance if the… CONTINUE READING
