Time-to-market of systems using reliable, high-accuracy positioning is accelerated with this new add-on board, which is based on the popular mikroBUS standard

mosaic-X5 compact GNSS receiver module from Septentrio, a provider of high-precision GNSS positioning solutions, has been integrated into a new Click board by MIKROE, a major provider of solutions for embedded systems development. The new board, called Mosaic Click, is compatible with the popular mikroBUS socket standard, enabling plug-and-play prototyping and reduced time-to-market. The mosaic-X5 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. Such a high level of robustness and resilience is especially interesting for applications where safety is a concern, as well as autonomous and mission-critical applications of systems like UAVs or industrial robots.

“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,” commented Gustavo Lopez, Market Access Manager at Septentrio.

"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," stated Aleksandar Mitrovic, Head of Click Team & Click boards Product Marketing Manager at MIKROE.

The mosaic-X5 receiver tracks all available GNSS constellations including GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, GLONASS and is protected by Septentrio’s renowned 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.

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.
