ArduSimple launches GNSS starter-kit with centimetre precision positioning

Aimed at those looking to test ‘proof-of-concept' with high precision positioning - Works seamlessly out-of-the-box in Europe and US -

ArduSimple today announced the availability of a range of GNSS starter-kits enabling anyone in Europe or the US interested in testing or integrating high precision centimetre accuracy for a service or product proof of concept (PoC).

Building a PoC for increasingly common applications such as autonomous vehicles where high levels of positioning accuracy is required is often a complex process. Finding compatible antennas that are tuned correctly, CPUs, modems that connect to GSM, sourcing a global SiM and then finding a suitable RTK correction engine that works in multiple regions and then mounting this all on a board is a lengthy and costly process.

Solving this issue, ArduSimple has pulled together all the components and services required into a range of starter-kits that work - straight out of the box.

Working anywhere in Europe and the US with a 4G signal the simpleSSR - Starter Kit includes:

1 simpleRTK2B-F9P V3 board

1 u-blox ANN-MB-00 Antenna for GNSS Dual Band with cable (IP67)

4G radio module with NTRIP client including RTK-SSR engine (XBee socket compatible)

2x 4G antennas with integrated cable

1x SIM card with 1-year subscription

1-year subscription to u-blox PointPerfect SSR service

Price: €799.00 / $849.00

Commenting on the start kit launch, Marc Castillo, Senior Consultant at ArduSimple, said: "Bringing together the components, high precision accuracy and connectivity in Europe and the US in one simple out-of-the-box solution will significantly speed up the process of PoC projects. We've reduced the complexity enabling engineers to focus on the feasibility of their project."

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
