The GPS Bricklet 2.0 can be used to extend Bricks by the possibility to determine their position via GPS. Additionally it is possible to receive movement (direction and velocity), altitude (altitude and geodial separation), as well as high precise time/date information and PPS signal.
Current values for elevation, azimuth and SNR for each of the GPS and GLONASS satellites can be read out.
The GPS module is optimized to get a fast fix, has a high input sensitivity (-165dBm) and a update rate of 10Hz suitable for drones or the like. Internal interference canceller rejects RF interference from other devices like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
A 25mmx25mm active patch antenna with high gain is permanently attached to the bottom side of the Bricklet and connected by a U.FL connector. You can remove the connector and connect your own external antenna.
A CR1025 coin cell battery is also included. It is used as a battery backup for the last satellite position data. With this information a fix can be obtained faster if the power was lost.
The GPS Bricklet 2.0 has a 7 pole Bricklet connector and is connected to a Brick with a 7p-10p Bricklet cable.
Hardware version 2.0 does not work properly with a HAT (Zero) Brick, due to a hardware design flaw on the Bricklet. This flaw will be fixed in future hardware version 2.1. Existing GPS Bricklets can be successfully connected to a HAT (Zero) Brick using an Isolator Bricklet.
