High Precision GPS Adapter Photo

The GW16143 is a high precision GPS Mini-PCIe card designed to provide precise positioning to applications utilizing Gateworks single board computers. It provides centimeter-level (<2cm) accuracy via GNSS positioning with concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou.

This is a wiki page about how to use the GW16143.

Please view the actual product page on the Gateworks website here:

Here are a list of features:

  • High Precision GNSS Mini-PCIe card
  • Concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou
  • Centimeter-level (<2cm) Accuracy GNSS positioning
  • Integrated Multi-Band Real Time Kinematics (RTK)
  • High update rate for highly dynamic applications
  • Allows for “Base” and “Rover” Operation
  • Two UART headers for external correction messages
  • Timepulse (PPS) output header
  • Uses Standard NMEA, UBX and RTCM Message Format
  • USB to Serial Interface
  • Status LEDs
  • Rechargeable Lithium battery for faster cold start acquisition
  • RTCM 3.x, SSR, SBAS Corrections
  • <1.0m SBAS, <0.2m SSR, <0.03m RTCM 3.x
  • Supports L1 and L2/L5 Bands
  • -40°C to +85°C Operating Temperature
  • Made in USA

Differential GNSS devices such as the GW16143 are starting to replace survey-grade equipment. Other radio cards such as the Gateworks GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or GW16132 CAT-M1 modem can provide communication links for the augmentation data. The GW16143 enables precision navigation and automation of moving machinery in industrial applications such as agriculture, mining, and field mapping.
