Give your Feather a sense of place, with an Ultimate GPS FeatherWing. In 2013 we designed the Ultimate GPS module to satisfy all your GPS desires - and now we have brought its power and versatility plus more to our Feather series with the Adafruit Ultimate GPS FeatherWing! This FeatherWing plugs right into your Feather board and gives it a precise, sensitive, and low power GPS module for location identifcation anywhere in the world. As a bonus, the GPS can also keep track of time once it is synced with the satellites.
Works with all Feathers except for those with USB-Serial converters that use the UART pins. Right now that means the ESP8266 Huzzah Feather and nRF52 Feather don't work
It has everything you need and more:
-165 dBm sensitivity, 10 Hz updates, 66 channels
Only 20mA current draw
RTC with coin battery backup
PPS (pulse per second) output on fix
Internal patch antenna + u.FL connector for external active antenna
Fix status LED
The Wing is built around the MTK3339 chipset, a no-nonsense, high-quality GPS module that can track up to 22 satellites on 66 channels, has an excellent high-sensitivity receiver (-165 dB tracking!), and a built in antenna. It can do up to 10 location updates a second for high speed, high sensitivity logging or tracking. Power usage is incredibly low, only 20 mA during navigation.
We added some extra goodies to make this GPS FeatherWing better than a breakout: a FET-driven ENABLE pin so you can turn off the module using any microcontroller pin for low power use, a CR1220 coin cell holder to keep the RTC running and allow warm starts and a tiny bright red LED. The LED blinks at about 1Hz while it's searching for satellites and blinks once every 15 seconds when a fix is found to conserve power.
Comes as a fully assembled FeatherWing with GPS module and a coin cell holder. However, the 12mm coin cell is not included - it isn't required but if you would like a battery backup, a CR1220 coin battery must be purchased seperately. We also toss in some header so you can solder it in and plug into your Feather.
These two Female Stacking Headers alone are, well, lonely. But pair them with any of our Feather boards and you\'re in business!What do they do? They stack. Put the headers through your Feather and then you can not only plug them into a solderless breadboard, but you could attach circuitry on top as well
Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like it\'s namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.This is the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 - our take on an \'all-in-one\' ESP8226 WiFi development board with built in USB and battery charging. Its an...
This I2C digital temperature sensor is one of the more accurate/precise we\'ve ever seen, with a typical accuracy of ±0.25¡C over the sensor\'s -40¡C to +125¡C range and precision of +0.0625¡C. They work great with any microcontroller using standard i2c. There are 3 address pins so you can connect up to 8 to a single I2C bus without address collisions....
Sensiron Temperature/Humidity sensors are some of the finest amp; highest-accuracy devices you can get. And, finally we have some that have a true I2C interface for easy reading. The SHT31-D sensor has an excellent ±2% relative humidity and ±0.3°C accuracy for most uses.
These are very slim, extremely light weight batteries based on the new Polymer Lithium Ion chemistry. This is the highest energy density currently in production. Each cell outputs a nominal 3.7V at 6000mAh! Comes terminated with a standard 2-pin JST-PH connector - 2mm spacing between pins. These batteries require special charging. Do not attempt to charge...
