Global Navigation Satellite Signal Systems (GNSS), or as we all like to call it “GPS”, enable precise location determination on Earth. Thanks to this module, you can use GNSS for your project and use the device for asset tracking or create a wearable device. The module is small, energy-efficient, high-performing, and easy to use thanks to the built-in antenna.
L86-M33 is a GNSS receiver, which means it can receive signals from GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo constellations. Equipped with EASY (Embedded Assist System for self-generated orbit prediction) and AlwaysLocate technologies, L86-M33 ensures fast and accurate positioning even in challenging environments. Its advanced internal logger LOCUS allows you to store your routes and location data.
Our breakout board, in addition to the previously mentioned L86-M33 module which has an integrated antenna, also has a connector for a CR1220 battery which is used as a backup for timekeeping and GPS data. The module can operate without the battery, but every time it will have to fetch data from satellites afresh (cold start). If the integrated antenna is insufficient, there is an IPX connector on the board for adding an external, stronger antenna. The antenna we suggest can be found here. To easily access the module pins, the pins are extended on the board for accessibility. There is also a switch on the board to change the I2C address.
