Introduction

The LEA-5H is a high performance stand-alone GPS and GALILEO receiver module designed to allow easy, straightforward migration from its LEA-4 predecessors. It features u-blox' KickStart weak signal acquisition technology, as well as flexible connectivity options. The LEA-5H comes with built-in Flash memory that enables firmware updates and the storage of specific configuration settings in a non-volatile RAM. The built-in antenna supervisor supports external and active antennas, such as u-blox' ANN high performance GPS antenna.

u-blox KickStart provides accelerated startup at weak signals, and our featured SuperSense® Indoor GPS is capable of tracking and acquiring even extremely weak signals. This makes the LEA-5H suitable for solutions using small or covert antennas.

Specification

Sample Code

// # Editor     : Lauren from DFRobot
// # Date       : 22.02.2012

// # Product name: DFRduino GPS Shield-LEA-5H
// # Product SKU : TEL0044
// # Version     : 1.0

// # Update the library and sketch to compatible with IDE V1.0 and earlier

// # Description:
// # The sketch for using the DFRduino GPS Shield-LEA-5H

// # Connection:
// #        Directly connect the shield to the Arduino controller
// #        If you'd like to drive the shield via UART interface, you may need to connect the jumpers on the board.
