Introducing the Triband GNSS RTK – Information

Right now, we launch our latest GNSS board that includes the mosaic-X5 in collaboration with our companions at Septentrio!




It is a particular Thursday right here at SparkFun Electronics as a result of as we speak we’re including a brand new GNSS RTK board to the ranks. Introducing the SparkFun Triband GNSS RTK Breakout! In-built collaboration with our latest companions at Septentrio, this board options the highly-accurate and low-power mosaic-X5 GNSS module. This can be a primary breakout board that was designed to get you began as rapidly and as simply as attainable. The truth is, to function it you will not even have to jot down a single line of code for those who do not wish to! Let’s take a better look, lets?

We see new iterations with GNSS every passing yr, and with the SparkFun mosaic-X5 Triband GNSS RTK Breakout, you may be supplied with the simplest approach to begin utilizing L1, L2, and L5 bands concurrently! On the coronary heart of the Triband GNSS RTK Breakout is Septentrio‘s most compact high-precision GNSS receiver, the mosaic-X5. The mosaic-X5 module is an ultra-low energy, multi-band, multi-constellation GNSS receiver able to delivering centimeter-level precision at excessive replace charges. The receiver helps the GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), Beidou (China), Galileo (Europe), and NavIC (India) constellations, together with regional methods (i.e. SBAS and QZSS). It additionally options Septentrio’s distinctive AIM+ expertise for interference mitigation and anti-spoofing, guaranteeing best-in-class reliability and scalable place accuracy.

With its Actual Time Kinematics (RTK) capabilities, the mosaic-X5 module can function as a base station to broadcast RTK correction information or as a rover using RTK correction information to report positions with excessive precision. The module can obtain a horizontal accuracy of 6mm (~0.25in), vertical accuracy of 1cm (~0.4in) utilizing RTK, and timing precision of 5ns (5 billionths of a second). The mosaic-X5 is appropriate with RTK correction information from varied Third-party companies. The mosaic-X5 also can ship place updates at 100Hz (100 occasions per second) for automotive and industrial functions.

The mosaic-X5 is a classy chip operating an inner internet server that may be accessed by way of the USB interface with a typical browser utilizing a Linux/Home windows pc. Septentrio additionally offers dozens of video tutorials to information customers by way of the configuration settings of their GNSS receivers using the net interface. Along with the module’s internet interface, Septentrio offers software program packages the place customers can post-process recorded information, configure the mosaic-X5 module, and analyze the receiver’s efficiency or the GNSS alerts for interference/spoofing. If these interface choices weren’t sufficient, Septentrio’s GNSS modules are appropriate with different Third-party software program packages.

Past the capabilities of the mosaic-X5 module, this board is seamless to function with no programming expertise required. Gone are the occasions when a microcontroller was required to interface with the GNSS receiver and log information to an SD card and when customers needed to carry round an SD card reader to extract the info from the SD card. The mosaic-X5 Triband GNSS RTK Breakout can begin/cease logging information on the push of a button. The identical button also can mount and unmount the SD card to your pc by way of the USB interface. Customers can management/configure the module, log information, and so forth., all and not using a single line of code. For the customers preferring a command-line interface, Septentrio has you lined. Customers can nonetheless management and configure the mosaic-X5 module by way of a CLI, which is helpful for situations akin to manufacturing line testing.

Get Started with the mosaic-X5 Tri-band GNSS RTK Breakout Guide

We have even written a whole information that can allow you to start working with the mosaic-X5 Triband GNSS RTK Breakout! By clicking the picture or button above it is possible for you to to study any additional components you may have to stand up and operating, a full {hardware} overview and meeting, and how one can get you began with software program. This information is a unbelievable launching level for the breakout, so ensure you test it out as properly!

And that is it for as we speak! The mosaic-X5 Triband GNSS RTK Breakout is now out there to order. We count on this board to promote out fairly quick, so if we occur to promote out, don’t fret, we’re busy constructing extra!

Thanks a lot for stopping by as we speak and having a look at our latest GNSS board. We’ll see you tomorrow to check out the remainder of this week’s new merchandise (together with a video for this board as properly)! Joyful hacking!
