GPS Navigation with Support for AIS (Automatic Identification System) for the Raspberry Pi. Designed and developed for Openplotter - "The open-source sailing platform for ARM computers" (based on OpenCPN Chart Plotter Navigation)
Standalone usage or in combination with Raspberry Pi (standalone usage requires 3.3V power supply)
Fully compatible with Raspberry Pi models supporting 40-pin IO header
High-sensitivity dual channel AIS receiver with SMA antenna connector
High-performance GNSS receiver with integrated patch antenna and external antenna support via BNC connector
3 status LEDs
Barometric pressure, humidity, temperature, gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer sensors. Sensors are directly accessible via Raspberry Pi. In standalone mode the sensors are controlled by the host microcontroller.
IO headers to interface with spare GPIOs of the Raspberry Pi
UART signals of Raspberry Pi available on header
Data communication via SPI (AIS, GNSS and meta data) and via I2C (sensor data). Data accessible via device driver and device file.
