API

Since Delphi does not support multiple return values directly, we use the out keyword to return multiple values from a function.

All functions and procedures listed below are thread-safe.

Basic Functions

constructor TBrickletGPSV2.Create(const uid: string; ipcon: TIPConnection)

Creates an object with the unique device ID uid:

gpsV2 := TBrickletGPSV2.Create('YOUR_DEVICE_UID', ipcon);

This object can then be used after the IP Connection is connected (see examples above).

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetCoordinates(out latitude: longword; out ns: char; out longitude: longword; out ew: char)

Returns the GPS coordinates. Latitude and longitude are given in the DD.dddddd° format, the value 57123468 means 57.123468°. The parameter ns and ew are the cardinal directions for latitude and longitude. Possible values for ns and ew are 'N', 'S', 'E' and 'W' (north, south, east and west).

This data is only valid if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetStatus(out hasFix: boolean; out satellitesView: byte)

Returns if a fix is currently available as well as the, the number of satellites that are in view.

There is also a green LED on the Bricklet that indicates the fix status.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetAltitude(out altitude: longint; out geoidalSeparation: longint)

Returns the current altitude and corresponding geoidal separation.

Both values are given in cm.

This data is only valid if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetMotion(out course: longword; out speed: longword)

Returns the current course and speed. Course is given in hundredths degree and speed is given in hundredths km/h. A course of 0° means the Bricklet is traveling north bound and 90° means it is traveling east bound.

Please note that this only returns useful values if an actual movement is present.

This data is only valid if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetDateTime(out date: longword; out time: longword)

Returns the current date and time. The date is given in the format ddmmyy and the time is given in the format hhmmss.sss. For example, 140713 means 14.05.13 as date and 195923568 means 19:59:23.568 as time.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetSatelliteSystemStatusLowLevel(const satelliteSystem: byte; out satelliteNumbersLength: byte; out satelliteNumbersData: array [0..11] of byte; out fix: byte; out pdop: word; out hdop: word; out vdop: word)

Returns the

  • satellite numbers list (up to 12 items)
  • fix value,
  • PDOP value,
  • HDOP value and
  • VDOP value

for a given satellite system. Currently GPS and GLONASS are supported, Galileo is not yet supported.

The GPS and GLONASS satellites have unique numbers and the satellite list gives the numbers of the satellites that are currently utilized. The number 0 is not a valid satellite number and can be ignored in the list.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SATELLITE_SYSTEM_GPS = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SATELLITE_SYSTEM_GLONASS = 1

Returns the current

  • elevation (0° - 90°),
  • azimuth (0° - 359°) and
  • SNR (0dB - 99dB)

for a given satellite and satellite system.

The satellite number here always goes from 1 to 32. For GLONASS it corresponds to the satellites 65-96.

Advanced Functions

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.Restart(const restartType: byte)

Restarts the GPS Bricklet, the following restart types are available:

Value Description
0 Hot start (use all available data in the NV store)
1 Warm start (don't use ephemeris at restart)
2 Cold start (don't use time, position, almanacs and ephemeris at restart)
3 Factory reset (clear all system/user configurations at restart)

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_RESTART_TYPE_HOT_START = 0

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_RESTART_TYPE_FACTORY_RESET = 3
procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetFixLEDConfig(const config: byte)

Sets the fix LED configuration. By default the LED shows if the Bricklet got a GPS fix yet. If a fix is established the LED turns on. If there is no fix then the LED is turned off.

You can also turn the LED permanently on/off, show a heartbeat or let it blink in sync with the PPS (pulse per second) output of the GPS module.

If the Bricklet is in bootloader mode, the LED is off.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_OFF = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_ON = 1
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_FIX = 3
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_PPS = 4
function TBrickletGPSV2.GetFixLEDConfig: byte

Returns the configuration as set by SetFixLEDConfig

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_OFF = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_ON = 1
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_FIX = 3
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FIX_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_PPS = 4
procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetSBASConfig(const sbasConfig: byte)

If SBAS is enabled, the position accuracy increases (if SBAS satellites are in view), but the update rate is limited to 5Hz. With SBAS disabled the update rate is increased to 10Hz.

By default SBAS is enabled and the update rate is 5Hz.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SBAS_ENABLED = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SBAS_DISABLED = 1

New in version 2.0.2 (Plugin).

function TBrickletGPSV2.GetSBASConfig: byte

Returns the SBAS configuration as set by SetSBASConfig

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SBAS_ENABLED = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_SBAS_DISABLED = 1

New in version 2.0.2 (Plugin).

function TBrickletGPSV2.GetAPIVersion: array [0..2] of byte

Returns the version of the API definition (major, minor, revision) implemented by this API bindings. This is neither the release version of this API bindings nor does it tell you anything about the represented Brick or Bricklet.

function TBrickletGPSV2.GetResponseExpected(const functionId: byte): boolean

Returns the response expected flag for the function specified by the function ID parameter. It is true if the function is expected to send a response, false otherwise.

For getter functions this is enabled by default and cannot be disabled, because those functions will always send a response. For callback configuration functions it is enabled by default too, but can be disabled by SetResponseExpected. For setter functions it is disabled by default and can be enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

See SetResponseExpected for the list of function ID constants available for this function.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetResponseExpected(const functionId: byte; const responseExpected: boolean)

Changes the response expected flag of the function specified by the function ID parameter. This flag can only be changed for setter (default value: false) and callback configuration functions (default value: true). For getter functions it is always enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following function ID constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FUNCTION_RESTART = 6
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_FUNCTION_SET_FIX_LED_CONFIG = 9

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetSPITFPErrorCount(out errorCountAckChecksum: longword; out errorCountMessageChecksum: longword; out errorCountFrame: longword; out errorCountOverflow: longword)

Returns the error count for the communication between Brick and Bricklet.

The errors are divided into

  • ACK checksum errors,
  • message checksum errors,
  • framing errors and
  • overflow errors.

The errors counts are for errors that occur on the Bricklet side. All Bricks have a similar function that returns the errors on the Brick side.

function TBrickletGPSV2.SetBootloaderMode(const mode: byte): byte

Sets the bootloader mode and returns the status after the requested mode change was instigated.

You can change from bootloader mode to firmware mode and vice versa. A change from bootloader mode to firmware mode will only take place if the entry function, device identifier and CRC are present and correct.

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetWriteFirmwarePointer(const pointer: longword)

Sets the firmware pointer for WriteFirmware. The pointer has to be increased by chunks of size 64. The data is written to flash every 4 chunks (which equals to one page of size 256).

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

function TBrickletGPSV2.WriteFirmware(const data: array [0..63] of byte): byte

Writes 64 Bytes of firmware at the position as written by SetWriteFirmwarePointer before. The firmware is written to flash every 4 chunks.

You can only write firmware in bootloader mode.

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetStatusLEDConfig(const config: byte)

Sets the status LED configuration. By default the LED shows communication traffic between Brick and Bricklet, it flickers once for every 10 received data packets.

You can also turn the LED permanently on/off or show a heartbeat.

If the Bricklet is in bootloader mode, the LED is will show heartbeat by default.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_STATUS_LED_CONFIG_OFF = 0
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_STATUS_LED_CONFIG_ON = 1
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2

  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2
  • BRICKLET_GPS_V2_STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_STATUS = 3
function TBrickletGPSV2.GetChipTemperature: smallint

Returns the temperature in °C as measured inside the microcontroller. The value returned is not the ambient temperature!

The temperature is only proportional to the real temperature and it has bad accuracy. Practically it is only useful as an indicator for temperature changes.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.Reset

Calling this function will reset the Bricklet. All configurations will be lost.

After a reset you have to create new device objects, calling functions on the existing ones will result in undefined behavior!

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.WriteUID(const uid: longword)

Writes a new UID into flash. If you want to set a new UID you have to decode the Base58 encoded UID string into an integer first.

We recommend that you use Brick Viewer to change the UID.

function TBrickletGPSV2.ReadUID: longword

Returns the current UID as an integer. Encode as Base58 to get the usual string version.

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.GetIdentity(out uid: string; out connectedUid: string; out position: char; out hardwareVersion: array [0..2] of byte; out firmwareVersion: array [0..2] of byte; out deviceIdentifier: word)

Returns the UID, the UID where the Bricklet is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be 'a', 'b', 'c' or 'd'.

The device identifier numbers can be found here. There is also a constant for the device identifier of this Bricklet.

Callback Configuration Functions

procedure TBrickletGPSV2.SetCoordinatesCallbackPeriod(const period: longword)

Sets the period in ms with which the OnCoordinates callback is triggered periodically. A value of 0 turns the callback off.

The OnCoordinates callback is only triggered if the coordinates changed since the last triggering.

The default value is 0.

function TBrickletGPSV2.GetDateTimeCallbackPeriod: longword

Returns the period as set by SetDateTimeCallbackPeriod.

Callbacks

Callbacks can be registered to receive time critical or recurring data from the device. The registration is done by assigning a procedure to an callback property of the device object:

procedure TExample.MyCallback(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const param: word);
begin
  WriteLn(param);
end;

gpsV2.OnExample := {$ifdef FPC}@{$endif}example.MyCallback;

The available callback property and their type of parameters are described below.

Note

Using callbacks for recurring events is always preferred compared to using getters. It will use less USB bandwidth and the latency will be a lot better, since there is no round trip time.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnPulsePerSecond
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2) of object;

This callback is triggered precisely once per second, see PPS.

The precision of two subsequent pulses will be skewed because of the latency in the USB/RS485/Ethernet connection. But in the long run this will be very precise. For example a count of 3600 pulses will take exactly 1 hour.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnCoordinates
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const latitude: longword; const ns: char; const longitude: longword; const ew: char) of object;

This callback is triggered periodically with the period that is set by SetCoordinatesCallbackPeriod. The parameters are the same as for GetCoordinates.

The OnCoordinates callback is only triggered if the coordinates changed since the last triggering and if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnStatus
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const hasFix: boolean; const satellitesView: byte) of object;

This callback is triggered periodically with the period that is set by SetStatusCallbackPeriod. The parameters are the same as for GetStatus.

The OnStatus callback is only triggered if the status changed since the last triggering.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnAltitude
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const altitude: longint; const geoidalSeparation: longint) of object;

This callback is triggered periodically with the period that is set by SetAltitudeCallbackPeriod. The parameters are the same as for GetAltitude.

The OnAltitude callback is only triggered if the altitude changed since the last triggering and if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnMotion
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const course: longword; const speed: longword) of object;

This callback is triggered periodically with the period that is set by SetMotionCallbackPeriod. The parameters are the same as for GetMotion.

The OnMotion callback is only triggered if the motion changed since the last triggering and if there is currently a fix as indicated by GetStatus.

property TBrickletGPSV2.OnDateTime
procedure(sender: TBrickletGPSV2; const date: longword; const time: longword) of object;

This callback is triggered periodically with the period that is set by SetDateTimeCallbackPeriod. The parameters are the same as for GetDateTime.

The OnDateTime callback is only triggered if the date or time changed since the last triggering.

Constants

const BRICKLET_GPS_V2_DEVICE_IDENTIFIER

This constant is used to identify a GPS Bricklet 2.0.

The GetIdentity function and the OnEnumerate callback of the IP Connection have a deviceIdentifier parameter to specify the Brick's or Bricklet's type.

const BRICKLET_GPS_V2_DEVICE_DISPLAY_NAME

This constant represents the human readable name of a GPS Bricklet 2.0.
