  • Product PRT-09216 | about 3 years ago

    Hi
    I am about to runs some tests with this little board. I am interested in the shutdown CE pin. I think with some handing work with a scalpel I can cut the track between the pins. But before I do I was drawing out different ways that I can get my device to turn its self on by a button press then turns its self off. using a FET(turned on by button) to pull the CE pin high is the best way I can think of. The micro pulls low on CE turning its self off. Has anyone got any clever solutions to turn the DC to DC convertor on and off?

  • Product GPS-09171 | about 5 years ago

    I had this little guy up and running in minutes, I used the GPS-00177 antenna with built in LNA. This unit even picks up satellites on my workbench inside. The data sheet specifies a power save mode but does not go into detail. Does anyone know about this power save mode? the default baud rate is 9600 but if you want to download the log files you need to change to 115200. I down loaded my log file and decompressed it to kml and it looks great in Google earth but I need the track to show date and time. I am communicating to the device using xbee’s so I can put the unit outside and test features, I wan’t to install it into the car to log where it’s been.

No public wish lists :(
