MikroElektronika has launched GPS 5 Click – the latest in the company’s ever-growing 1000+ strong lineup of compact add-on Click boards – that provides users with positioning, navigation, and timing services.
This board features the M20050-1, a compact GPS module receiver using the MediaTek MT3333 flash chip, providing a complete GNSS receiver for optimum performance from Antenova. The receiver tracks 3 GNSS constellations concurrently (GPS+Galileo+GLONASS or GPS+Beidou) to considerably enhance location and TTFF (Time-to-first-fix) and has configurable low power modes operating from a 3.3V power supply. In addition to the possibility of using an external antenna, backup power, and various visual indicators, the M20050-1 also has an accurate 0.5ppm TXCO ensuring short TTFF alongside multi-path algorithms, which improves position accuracy in inner-city environments.
Click boards are a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, which revolutionizes the way users add new functionalities to development boards. Click boards enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. To enable hundreds of Click boards to be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor we have invented a socket standard – mikroBUS. This uniform connection interface is allowing you to connect any Click boards to the main board instantly. The company releases a new Click board nearly every day at 10 am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas, and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS socket on their development boards.
