Mouser Now Offering u-blox XPLR-HPG-2 Explorer Kit for Rapid Development of High Precision GNSS Applications

by gabi

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now offering the XPLR-HPG-2 Explorer kit from u-blox. The XPLR-HPG-2 Explorer kit provides a compact development and prototyping platform for cm-level accuracy positioning applications, such as autonomous robotics, asset tracking and connected health.

The u-blox XPLR-HPG-2 Explorer kit is populated with four modules:

  • The ZED-F9R is a high-precision sensor fusion module with 3D sensors and a multi-band GNSS receiver. It provides a reliable multi-band RTK turnkey solution with up to 30 Hz real-time position update rate and complete GNSS carrier raw data.
  • The NEO-D9S module is 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 LARA-R6001D is a compact LTE Cat 1 multi-mode module offering global coverage. The module is also secure by design with secure boot and secure updates and is certified according to RED cybersecurity requirements.
  • The NINA-W106 is a small industrial module that integrates a powerful dual-core 32-bit microcontroller with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi® and dual-mode Bluetooth® v4.2.

Equipped with its GNSS and communication modules, the XPLR-HPG-2 Explorer kit can access correction data from a satellite broadcast via L-band satellite GNSS receiver or IP connectivity using LTE or Wi-Fi. The NINA-W10 wireless MCU module with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity runs the HPG software and controls the communications between the u-blox wireless modules. PointPerfect, the u-blox GNSS augmentation service, provides correction data delivered via the Thingstream IoT service delivery platform. The XPLR-HPG-2 also supports the Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTRIP), so it can also be used with other error correction services.
