Mini PCIe Card Does High-Precision GNSS/GPS

Gateworks has released a new high precision GNSS / GPS Mini-PCIe adapter based upon the U-blox ZED-F9P. The GW16143 enables precision navigation and automation of moving machinery in industrial applications such as agriculture, mining, and field mapping. Differential GNSS devices such as the GW16143 are starting to replace survey-grade equipment where precision is important.

Multi-band Real-time kinematic (RTK) technology provides fast convergence times and reliable performance. The module supports both base and rover operation for RTK applications. Other radio cards such as the Gateworks GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or GW16132 CAT-M1 modem can provide communication links for the augmentation data.

A MMCX antenna port allows for an external antenna. USB signaling is used on the Mini-PCIe connector to communicate with the host processor. Two UART headers are available to allow for correction data over serial. A PPS time pulse output header is also available. For faster cold start acquisition times, a rechargeable 3.3V lithium battery is provided.
