Septentrio, a manufacturer of multi-frequency multi-constellation GPS/GNSS positioning technology, has revealed that its mosaic-X5 compact GNSS receiver module has been integrated into MIKROE‘s new Click board™. 

The mosaic-X5 GNSS receiver leverages triple-band GNSS technology to achieve cm-level RTK accuracy with a high degree of reliability, even in challenging environments. Advanced anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technology protects the receiver form malicious or accidental radio interference. 

The mosaic-X5 receiver tracks all available GNSS constellations including GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, GLONASS and is protected by Septentrio’s AIM+ anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technology. Full GNSS raw data and positioning are delivered at a high update rate of 100Hz and with low latency, critical for autonomous movement and maneuvering.

The built-in web user interface and embedded NTRIP client make it easy to get started with high accuracy “out of the box”. Inspired by the mosaicBus open-source project of Septentrio, Mosaic Click is supported by an extensive mikroSDK library, which includes functions that simplify software development.

Septentrio assert that the mosaic-X5’s high level of robustness and resilience is especially interesting for applications where safety is a concern, as well as autonomous technology and mission-critical applications of systems like UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) or industrial robots.

A provider of solutions for embedded systems development, MIKROE’s Mosaic Click is compatible with the popular mikroBUS™ socket standard, enabling plug-and-play prototyping and reduced time-to-market. 

The mikroBUS is one of the world’s fastest-growing add-on board standards primarily used in embedded systems. It is designed into development boards of major vendors including MikroElektronika (MIKROE), the company that developed the mikroBUS standard.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, Head of Click Team & Click boards Product Marketing Manager at MIKROE, commented; “We are delighted to collaborate with Septentrio, whose top-of-the-line GNSS technology meets the rising demand of modern and professional high-performance applications. This partnership underlines our commitment to providing our customers with cutting-edge solutions that drive innovation and excellence across industries.”

Gustavo Lopez, Market Access Manager at Septentrio, added; “Our partnership with MIKROE is instrumental in expanding the mosaic ecosystem and empowering the development community with a competitive edge of highly reliable GNSS positioning. By leveraging MIKROE’s renowned form factor we are providing a familiar platform for faster evaluation and development.”
