The Yocto-GPS device is a 32 channels receiver for GNSS signals emitted by GPS and GLONASS satellites, that makes it possible to determine the position of the receiver, its speed as well as the current time. The latitude and the longitude at any time can be recorded on the internal flash memory, in order to build a data history that can be retrieved later on over USB.

The device can provide its positioning data at 10Hz, with a resolution of 10-6 degrees, eg. 10cm approximately. The absolute precision expected with clear satellite view is about 1.5m.

This device uses an external active antenna, using a U.FL (IPEX) connector. A small patch antenna (25x25mm, without enclosure) with a 10cm cable is included with the device. You can also use any other active GPS antenna, for instance a larger antenna in a waterproof enclosure with a long cable, using the U.FL to SMA adapter available separately.

This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub-Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub-Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub-GSM.

Hello, great product, I will be ordering shortly.

Can you please confirm if the antenna is including and what the maximum height this unit will operate at?

The Yocto-GPS has pretty standard limitations: it will lose track if any of the following limits are exceeded:
- ITAR limits: velocity greater than 515 m/s AND altitude above 18,000 m
- altitude: 100,000 m (max) or -1500 m (min)
- velocity: 600 m/s (max)
- acceleration: 2 G (max)
Contrarily to what has been previously written, it DOES properly report altitudes above 1000m.

And yes, the small antenna shown on pictures is included.

Yoctopuce, get your stuff connected.
