Quectel L80 GPS high-sensitivity ultra-slim GPS module Uses on-board patch antenna or external antenna Automatic antenna switching, anti-jamming, and more High sensitivity; -148dBm at acquisition 3.3V power supply
GPS3 click carries Quectel's L80 GPS module, a high-sensitivity ultra slim GPS module with a patch antenna. This module incorporates several technologies that enhance the GPS performance.
EASY™ Technology ensures that the L80 can calculate and predict orbits automatically using up to three days' worth of ephemeris data stored in its internal Flash memory. AlwaysLocate™ technology adaptively adjusts the on/off time to balance between positioning accuracy and power consumption. The automatic antenna-switching function enables switching between the internal patch antenna and an external active antenna, keeping positioning during the switching process.
The board's external antenna connector is U.FL. In most cases, you'll need a U.FL adapter for your antenna. In the options below you can select to add an SMA-to-U.FL adapter and a GPS antenna with SMA connector.
GPS3 click communicates with your target board through the mikroBUS UART (RX, TX) and RST lines. An on-board red LED blinks to indicate successful satellite aquisition. There are pins available for adding a backup battery. Note: This board uses 3.3V power supply only.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, these mikromedia shields, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
