Septentrio broadens its ecosystem with new open-source projects
Septentrio, a leader in high-precision GNSS positioning solutions, introduces today two new open-source hardware projects available to integrators of satellite-based positioning.
By expanding their ecosystem of open-source hardware and software Septentrio makes reliable GNSS positioning even more accessible to integrators, developers and the DiY community. The new projects embed mosaic, a compact high-precision multi-frequency GPS/GNSS receiver module known for its robust performance and resilience to jamming and spoofing.
The first project, mosaicBus, is a reference design of a board compatible with mikroBUS™, one of the world’s fastest-growing add-on board standards primarily used in embedded systems. MikroBUS enables easy plug-and-play sensor integration and is designed into development boards of major vendors including MikroElektronika, the company that developed the mikroBUS™ standard. The second project, called mosaicAlto, is a carrier board embedding the mosaic-X5 or mosaic-H GNSS receivers, which transforms Arduino Pro “Portenta” into a single-board computer with a GPS/GNSS receiver.
The two new projects allow integrators to easily take advantage of the mosaic receiver for building-in a competitive edge into their systems. The mosaicBus board simplifies development and reduces time-to-market for integrators of applications such as automation, robotics or IoT. While Arduino is well known by the DIY community, Arduino Pro is the professional version of this popular electronics platform, targeting industrial and other disruptive professional applications such as agriculture and construction.
