SkyTraq Technology Inc. has introduced the S2525F8-RTK, a low-cost, low-power, single frequency RTK receiver for applications requiring centimeter-level accuracy positioning. The S2525F8-RTK is a multi-constellation GNSS RTK receiver that can use 12 GPS, 8 SBAS, 6 BDS, and 1 QZSS signals. In situations where RTK fix is not possible, a Float RTK mode can be used for decimetre-level accuracy positioning. A moving-base mode is also supported for precise heading GPS compass application. S2525F8-RTK supports both base station and rover modes. As a rover, it receives RTCM 3.0 or 3.1 data from a base station, or raw measurements from another S2525F8-RTK receiver serving as base station. Two S2525F8-RTK receivers can be used to form GPS compass that provides 0.17degree heading accuracy. Its 25mm x 25mm form factor, 3 gram weight, and 250mW power consumption makes it ideal for any outdoor mobile applications requiring high precision RTK positioning.
