GPS 5 – just a Click away

MIKROE launches new GPS positioning, navigation, and timing add-on board

Sept 2022: MikroElektronika (MIKROE), the embedded solutions company that dramatically cuts development time by providing innovative hardware and software products based on proven standards has launched GPS 5 Click – the latest in the company’s ever-growing 1000+ strong line up 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.

Comments Nebojsa Matic, CEO at MIKROE: “For just $56, developers can address a broad spectrum of GPS applications where performance, cost, and time to market are prime considerations..”

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 socket standard – mikroBUS™. This uniform connection interface is allowing you to connect any Click boards™ to a main board instantly. The company releases a new Click boards™ nearly every day at 10am, 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.

About MikroElektronika

MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click Boards that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1000 Click Boards – ten times more than competitors – and the mikroBUS standard is included by leading microcontroller companies such as Microchip, Renesas and Toshiba on their development boards. SiBRAIN is MIKROE’s last standard, for MCU development add-on boards and sockets. MikroElektronika also makes the world’s widest range of compilers and additionally provides development environments, development boards, smart displays and programmers and debuggers.

224 Gbps Data Rates: Separating Fact from Fiction

Sponsored by Samtec

Data rates are getting faster with each passing year. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matthew Burns from Samtec to separate fact from fiction when it comes to 224 Gbps data rates. They take a closer look at the design challenges, the tradeoffs, and architectural decisions that we will need to consider when designing a 224 Gbps design. They also investigate the variety of interconnect solutions that Samtec offers for your next 224 Gbps design.
