GPS external module

GPS external module is a source of information about latitude, speed above ground and alternative source of information about altitude and course. Module was made as external to avoid interferences from other electronics. Module can be mounted far from computer outside fuselage. To protect electronics from environmental factors the PCB was resized to fit into popular Z-47U enclosure. Of course module can works without a box.

Module consist 10Hz, 66-chanel GPS receiver with internalantena based on MTK chipset. Depending mounting place: inside or outside fuselage, the LED can be mounted in SMD or THT version. Also backup capacitor can be mounted on the top or bottom side of PCB.

Ultimately, the module was to contain a magnetometer, but the chip become unavailable after making board.

Device parameters:

  • Dimensions: 35×44×10mm
  • Weight: 14g (without Z-47U enclosure)
