GNS5892 ADS-B / Mode-S receiver breakout board kit
The GNS5892 breakout board is a reciever for 1090MHz ADS-B / Mode-S 'virtual radar' signals. It is paired with a Silabs CP2103 USB-UART to make it easy to connect to any USB host computer. Module is powered via USB.
The RF connector has the following component placement options
- u-fl/ipex (default, included and soldered)
- SMA through-hole (optional, included)
- SMA edge-launch (optional, not included)
The GNS5892 breakout kit is delivered as a PCB assembly (circuit board with all SMT electronics components placed) and a seperate through-hole vertical SMA socket. If you want to use the SMA antenna input, you need to solder this connector.
Module's RxD, TxD, RTS and CTS are accessible via test pads, CP2103's GPIO 2 and 3 are also on test pads. GPIO 0 is connected with the NRST (reset) of the GNS5892 (NRST also on test pad). Furthermore, the frame indicator output controls a green LEDs and can also be accessed via test pad.
