Hi, I'm just fiddling with ARM board and related programming. I'm looking for a GPS module that can be connected to the AT91SAM7S board that I have... Please let me know of the choices that are available... when I google I get the info about GPS RX which are already packaged in a device... I found this product: SE4150L (http://www.skyworksinc.com/uploads/documents/SE4150L_DS.pdf)... not sure if this can be connected to the board.... Any pointers to related stuff done earlier will also be helpful (for eg. just getting the coordinates from the GPS module and print it to the screen).... Thanks.
Hi, I don't know the board you're using but a quick search on the internet revealed that it should have a UART interface. So you could easily use a GPS-Module which has an UART interface as well. Have a look here: http://www.sparkfun.com/categories/86 Here are two different ones on sale. They have a good guide right here: http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/127 Hope this helps. Matz
You can check this, they have got the GPS module based on Atmel ARM7 processor: http://www.whiznets.com/index.php/gprsgps-system-developer-kit.html
Hi, first of all you can use vitually any GPS module as (almost) all of them have a UART interface and position output in NMEA format (parsers in many languages available as sourcecode, ask google). Manufacturers: ublox (Switzerland, own chipset, very reliable, not really low-cost) fasttrax (Finland, SIRF based, besides other modules one that runs with 1.8V) quectel (China, competitive price) etc. etc. If you just want to evaluate any module Olimex MOD_GPS may be interesting for you. When you have any special needs just ask..
You can check with them: http://whiznets.com/index.php/gprsgps-system-developer-kit.html It is Atmel ARM7 based GPS module.
