SparkFun Electronics is thrilled to announce the launch of the SparkFun RTK mosaic-X5, a groundbreaking addition to the world of high-precision positioning technology. Designed and manufactured in Boulder, Colorado, this advanced RTK (Real Time Kinematics) product leverages the multi-constellation, multi-frequency capabilities of the Septentrio mosaic-X5 module, setting a new standard in accuracy and reliability for a wide range of positioning applications.

The RTK mosaic-X5 is a versatile tool for professionals and hobbyists alike, providing a 448-channel receiver that supports all major Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) including GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, and NavIC. Its ability to function as both an RTK Base and Rover allows users to achieve horizontal positioning accuracy down to 6 millimeters, with updates at a remarkable rate of 100Hz.

Beyond its precision, the RTK mosaic-X5 stands out for its sophisticated internal architecture. It incorporates the Espressif ESP32-WROVER processor, enabling not only high-speed processing but also a variety of connectivity options. With USB-C, Ethernet-over-USB, and an Ethernet to WiFi Bridge mode thanks to the ESP32, it ensures seamless integration into any project setup. The device also boasts power flexibility, including USB-C, Power-over-Ethernet, and external DC sources, along with robust data logging in multiple formats such as RINEX and NMEA.

"With a horizontal positional accuracy of approximately 6mm this is the best high-precision GNSS product that we carry to date."
