SparkFun’s latest GNSS breakout board features u-Blox NEO-F10N L1/L5 dual-band receiver for urban environments

SparkFun GNSS L1/L5 Breakout Board

The SparkFun GNSS L1/L5 Breakout is a standard precision GNSS board with meter-level positional accuracy that features the u-Blox NEO-F10N dual-band module, an SMA antenna connector, and a USB-C port for power and data. As its name implies, the board relies on the L1/L5 bands of the NEO-F10N instead of the more commonly seen L1/L2 bands and delivers better performance in urban environments. That’s because the L5 band falls within the protected ARNS (aeronautical radionavigation service) frequency band leading to less RF interference. SparkFun GNSS L1/L5 Breakout specifications: GNSS u-Blox NEO-F10N module with L1/L5 dual-band GNSS receiver Concurrent Reception of GPS, Galileo, and Beidou Integrated SMA Connector Time to First Fix: 28s (cold), 2s (hot) Max Navigation Rate for Single GNSS Configuration (GPS): 20 Hz Positional Accuracy (GPS) – 1.5m Time Pulse Accuracy – 30ns Operational Limits Max G: ≤ 4G Max Altitude: 80km Max Velocity: 500m/s Supports NMEA, UBX […]
