Part No.:PES020


This is the GPS SR92 module for Arduino with a SD card slot.




This GPS receiver comes with embedded antenna and only needs 5 pins to talk to your Arduino or MCU.

Pin  1:  GND Ground   
Pin  2:  VCC Power supply of 3.3 ~ 3.5 VDC
Pin  3:  TX Port A serial data output (GPS out); N-8-1, NMEA v3.00 output
Pin 4:   RX Port A serial data input (GPS in); N-8-1, accepts commands from external applications, e.g. SiRFDemo.
Pin 5:   5 PWR_CTRL Hardware controlled power saving pin.
            If this function is used, it is usually connected to a GPIO pin of a micro-processor.
            "Low": for normal run
            "High" or floating: turn off VCC for power saving
             Tie it to low if this pin is not used.

For Arduino application, we recommend aspen board: 

Not only handheld but also any other GPS applications can share the following major features
of SR-92.

  •  Easy adoption with best performance
  •  Integrated antenna and EMC protection
  •  Built-in backup battery allowing hot/warm starts and better performance
  •  No external component demand, just connect and use.
  •  Minimum RF and EMI efforts
  •  Small size of 18 (W) x 21 (L) x 7 (H) (mm) with patch antenna of 18x18x4mm.
  •  Fully implementation of ultra-high performance SiRFstarIII single chip architecture
  •  High tracking sensitivity of -159dBm
  •  Low power consumption of 40mA at full tracking
  •  Hardware power saving control pin allowing power off GPS via GPIO
  •  SR-92 could be arranged at best reception location inside housing
  •  Firmware upgradeable for future potential performance enhancements
