Mouser Now Offering u-blox XPLR-HPG-1 Explorer Kit for Rapid Development of High Precision GNSS Applications

by gabi

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest electronic components and industrial automation products, is now stocking the XPLR-HPG-1 Explorer kit from u-blox. The XPLR-HPG-1 Explorer kit provides a flexible, modular development and prototyping platform for centimeter-level accuracy positioning applications, such as autonomous robotics, asset tracking and connected health.

The u-blox XPLR-HPG-1 Explorer kit is comprised of a baseboard populated with a NORA-W106 module, which integrates a powerful dual-core 32-bit microcontroller with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi® and dual-mode Bluetooth®  LE 5 connectivity. The baseboard also features three mikroBUS™ connectors with pre-mounted click boards™ hosting u-blox positioning and cellular modules.

The GNSS RTK 2 click board features the ZED-F9R module, a high-precision dead-reckoning device offering global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning in challenging environments with a multi-band receiver. The LBAND RTK click board includes the NEO-D9S module, a satellite data receiver for the L-band correction broadcast, enabling global access to centimeter-level GNSS corrections. The module implements u-blox security principles and advanced security features, including signature, anti-jamming, and anti-spoofing mechanisms, thus allowing reliable GNSS positioning in end-user products.

The 4G LTE 2 click board features the LARA-R6001D, a compact LTE Cat 1 multi-mode module offering global coverage, enabling the reception of PointPerfect correction data via mobile networks. The module is secure by design with secure boot and secure updates and is certified according to RED cybersecurity requirements.

Equipped with its GNSS and communication modules, the XPLR-HPG-1 Explorer kit can access correction data from a satellite broadcast via L-band satellite GNSS receiver or IP connectivity using LTE or Wi-Fi. PointPerfect, the u-blox GNSS augmentation service, provides correction data delivered via the Thingstream IoT service delivery platform. The XPLR-HPG-1 also supports the Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTRIP), so it can also be used with other error correction services.

The XPLR-HPG-1 kit’s modular design also enables users to switch out Mikroe click boards. With over 1,400 click boards to choose from, developers can explore endless possibilities for combining u-blox modules with the functionality offered by other technology suppliers using the same kit.
