GPS-23286
$299.95

The SparkFun Triband GNSS RTK Breakout features the UM980 GNSS high precision RTK position module from Unicore Communications. The UM980 is a 1408-Channel GNSS Receiver based on the Nebulas IV™ that is able to simultaneously track GPS L1/L2/L5, GLONASS L1/L2, Galileo E1/E5a/E5b/E6, Beidou B1I/B2I/B3I/B1C/B2a/B2b, QZSS L1/L2/L5, and SBAS. With this board, you will be able to know where your (or any object's) X, Y, and Z location is within roughly the width of your fingernail. When an RTK solution is reached, the module can achieve a horizontal accuracy of about 8mm (~0.3 inches) and vertical accuracy of 15mm (~0.59 inches). The UM980 is capable of both rover and base station operations.

SPX-22791
$29.95

Do you need power? These breakouts for the 433M30S and 868M30S modules from EBYTE are 1W (30dBm) LoRa transceivers. LoRa is great for long range (miles), low power (in sleep), and low data rates (~500bps). This breakout board is designed to connect to any platform that has SPI and six available GPIO. We include a robust edge mount SMA connector to connect large LoRa (433MHz or 868MHz) antennas. Please make sure to verify which module is best for you if you are international or domestic!


That's it for this week. As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another! We'll be back with more new products next week so make sure to check back then. Happy holidays!
