Description: The Copernicus II is a great GPS module from Trimble, but the SMD module prohibits immediate gratification. This DIP allows the customer to gain direct access to the pins on the SMD module. Simply provide 2.7 - 3.3VDC. The Copernicus II DIP breakout has an impedance-matched, end-launch, standard SMA connector that will mate with our SMA GPS antennas listed below.
This revision of the board fixes a few silkscreen errors and adds a jumper between the VCC and XSTBY pins.

Based on 3 ratings:
This module performs exactly as per specs, it is ease to interface and very sensitive. My only remark is that the module does not allow the antenna to be fed independently. That would allow antenna current sensing, among other possibilities.
Looks like the link to the Trimble GPS Studio is dead and I can’t seem to find it on Trimble’s Site!
The Trimble Studio & Support Tools link doesn’t go to a site, but rather, downloads a zip file containing Trimble Studio. If you’ve clicked it, check your download folder for a compressed file named “TrimbleStudio_V1-64-00”. Unzip that, and you should be all set to go! Happy Hacking!
