Microstack GPS Receiver

Quick Overview

MICROSTACK is a framework of cross platform accessories that add functions to your designs through the use of cross platform module boards and platform specific adapter boards. Adapters to various platforms, starting with Raspberry Pi, add a common physical interface for connecting Microstack accessory module boards that are reuseable between designs and platforms.

MICROSTACK GPS features the L80 ultra slim POT(Patch on Top) module with an embedded 15x15mm patch antenna, this MICROSTACK module adds GPS positioning functions to all platforms compatible with the Microstack framework. This space-saving design makes L80 become the perpect module for the miniature devices. Adopted by LCC package and integrated with patch antenna, L80 has exceptional performance both in acquisition and tracking.

Product Description

MICROSTACK GPS features the L80 ultra slim POT(Patch on Top) module with an embedded 15x15mm patch antenna, this MICROSTACK module adds GPS positioning functions to all platforms compatible with the Microstack framework. This space-saving design makes L80 become the perpect module for the miniature devices. Adopted by LCC package and integrated with patch antenna, L80 has exceptional performance both in acquisition and tracking.

Combining advanced AGPS called EASY (Embedded Assist System) and proven AlwaysLocate technology, L80 achieves the highest performance and fully meets the industrial standard. EASY technology ensures L80 can calculate and predict orbits automatically using the ephemeris data (up to 3 days) stored in internal flash memory, so L80 can fix position quickly even at indoor signal levels with low power consumption. With AlwaysLocate technology, L80 can adaptively adjust the on/off time to achieve balance between positioning accuracy and power consumption according to the environmental and motion conditions.

L80 supports automatic antenna switching function. It can achieve the switching between internal patch antenna and external active antenna. Moreover, it keeps positioning during the switching process. With its tiny design, high precision and sensitivity, L80 is perfectly suitable for a broad range of M2M applications such as portable device, automotive, personal tracking, security and industrial PDA, especially suitable for special applications, like GPS mouse and OBD.

    MSBASE

    MICROSTACK is a family of reusable accessory boards with a common framework consisting of form factor and interface connections that work across various different single board computer(SBC) platforms through the use of platform specific base boards (adapter boards) starting with Raspberry Pi.

    MICROSTACK ADAPTER BOARD works with the Raspberry Pi to allow for two Microstack module boards to connect and work with Raspberry Pi in a easy and quick manner. Microstck boards do not interface directly with a SBC platform but through a base board like the MICROSTACK adapter board.
