SparkFun GP-2106 Breakout

This breakout board gives you access to the little tiny pins on the ribbon connector for the, also tiny, GP-2106 GPS module. All six pins are broken out to standard 0.1" headers. Keep in mind the GP-2106 runs on 1.8V and uses 1.8V logic levels. This board has undergone a minor layout revision to get the capacitor footprint out from under the connector.

Note: This board breaks out the connector only and does not include the GP-2106 module itself nor does it include the connecting ribbon cable. Both can be found in the related items below.

SparkFun GP-2106 Breakout Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Customer Comments

  • The ribbon-cable connector was not soldered to the breakout board when it arrived, which was the main reason for purchasing the breakout board in the first place.

    • That should definitely be soldered on, I’m wondering if it got knocked off in shipping. Email techsupport@sparkfun.com and they should be able to help.

  • Will there ever be a fritzing file for this part?
