UMTI-08 - GPS Engine Module

RESET
An external reset is initiated by pulling RESET low for at least 1 µs. If not used, RESET can be left unconnected since there is an internal 10k pull-up resistor.
RESET is also used in Push-to-Fix mode in order to wake up the unit and request a position fix. Minimum pulse width is 1 µs.

BOOTSEL
The boot signal BOOTSEL forces special debug mode when restarted with a reset signal or power-up. If not used, BOOTSEL can be left unconnected since there is an internal 100k pull-down resistor.

RF IN
The line on the PCB from the antenna (or antenna connector) has to be a controlled
impedance line (Microstrip at 50Ω).

VBAT
This is the battery backup supply that powers the SRAM and RTC when power is removed. Without an external backup battery or on board battery, engine board will execute a cold start after every turn on. To achieve the faster start-up offered by a hot or warm start, either a backup battery must be connected or battery installed on board.

TIMEMARK
This pin provides one pulse per second output from the engine board which is synchronized to within one microsecond of GPS time. The output is TTL negative level signal with negative logic.

  1. Electrical Specifications
    3.1. Absolute Maximum Ratings
    Warning – Stressing the device beyond the “Absolute Maximum Ratings” may cause permanent damage. These are stress ratings only. Operation beyond “Operating conditions” is not recommended and extended exposure beyond the “Operating condition” may affect device reliability. This module is not protected against over voltage, reversed voltage or short current of RF_IN port.

    NMEA-0183 Output Message

    MTI-8 module support a subset of the NMEA-0183 standard for interfacing marine electronic devices as defined by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA).
    NMEA Output messages
    The following is written assuming the user has a basic understanding of NMEA protocols and their use.
    GGA : Time, position and fix type data.
    GLL : Latitude, longitude, UTC time of position fix and status.
    GSA : GPS receiver operating mode, satellites used in the position solution, and DOP values.
    GSV : The number of GPS satellites in view satellite ID numbers, elevation, azimuth,
    and SNR values.
    MSS : Signal-to-noise ratio, signal strength, frequency, and bit rate from a radio-beacon receiver.
    RMC : Time, date, position, course and speed data.
    VTG : Course and speed information relative to the ground.
    ZDA : PPS timing message (synchronized to PPS).
