u-Blox 6

Anybody heard of this thing yet?It's listed on their website but not in their store. I sent an email, no reply yet.Supposed to be even more accuracy and faster and with less power consumption.I look forward to seeing it on the DIYDRONES store!

  • We have just been putting these on our PCB's. Too early for any test results yet.
  • Here is the reply to my email.
    "Thank you for your interest in u-blox GPS products. The LEA-6H will be available in engineering samples in early 1Q10 with production ramping in 2Q10. I have attached an overview but you need not delay your development. The LEA-5H is the current version and has the same pinout and interface as the 6H. "

    The 'better accuracy/faster speed' I mentioned had more to do with the additional correlators (2 mil vs. 1mil on the u-blox 5).

    I've also attached the data sheet. It mentions another model (non-programmable) which supports precision timing and raw data (though we don't really need that stuff).

    It also has a USB output which could be interesting (if you're connected to a laptop or other).

  • I have palyed with one of these in the lab - the performance is almost identical to the ones we use now as far as channels, tracking, speed of acquisition, etc. - but the power consumption is somewhat improved. The smaller units may be of some interest due to the physical size reduction, but even that has its drawbacks.
  • The main thing they're pushing is power consumption. The accuracy & speed isn't improving. 5Hz 1m deadband is still standard. Accuracy & speed would take raw navigation data for use with a free RTK library or dual frequency support & that isn't going to happen. Or were you recommending us purchase the uBlox 6?
