Gateworks released the GW16143, a high-precision GNSS/GPS Mini-PCLe adapter which is based on u-blox’s ZED-F9P. The new adapter allows for the automation of moving machinery in industrial applications.

The multi-band real-time kinematic (RTK) technology enhances convergence times and performance. Per the company, the module supports both base and rover operation for RTK applications.

GW16143 High Precision Mini-PCIe Card Highlights, per a company press release:

  • Concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou
  • Centimeter-level (<2cm) Accuracy GNSS positioning
  • High update rate for dynamic applications
  • Allows for RTK ""Base"" and ""Rover"" Operation
  • Two UART headers for correction data over serial, PPS timepulse output header
  • Uses Standard NMEA, UBX and RTCM Message Format
  • Uses Mini-PCIe USB Signaling
  • Status LEDs
  • Rechargeable Lithium battery, 3.3V, 3mAH, 6.8mm
  • RTCM 3.x, SSR, SBAS Corrections <1.0m SBAS, <0.2m SSR, <0.03m RTCM 3.x
  • Supports L1 and L2/L5 Bands
  • Rugged & Industrial design
  • -40C to +85C Industrial Operating Temperature
