NUT2NT+ is an open source, multi-frequency, multi-signal, front-end GNSS receiver board built around the NT1065 chip which has been made available via the Crowd Supply website and created by Amungo Navigation. The affordable low-power all-GNSS RF-to-bits receiver has been specifically created for satellite navigation enthusiasts and is now available to back from $320.
The NUT2NT+ hardware and software solution offers user the ability to set a receiver’s modes and frequencies, to capture all signals continuously, and to have complete control over primary processing features. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the NUT2NT+ board and its features.
“Several startups and large companies offer proprietary GNSS positioning solutions and even mobile GNSS software-defined receivers. But a closed ecosystem reduces accessibility for an enthusiast or professional developer, and it limits what a user can do with their hardware. We are happy to bring NUT2NT+ to the world as an open source option.”
Features of the NUT2NT+ include :
– Operates over all GNSS standards: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, IRNSS, and future standards
– Receives all GNSS bands: L1/L2/L3/L5, G1/G2/G5, B1/B2, E1/E5, and future bands
– High-throughput data streaming: with continuous streaming of up to 50 Mbytes/sec over USB 3.0 Type-C
– Fast processing: with a Lattice ECP5 FPGA
– Open source software: for spectrum and GNSS signal monitoring
– Low power consumption: utilizes 5 V @ 0.3 A over USB
– Small form-factor: main board dimensions are 100 mm x 50 mm x 10 mm
– Power injector circuit: for antennas with a DC short like a dipole or PIFA. The circuit is software-controllable.
– Available accessories: including enclosures and antennas
For more details and full hardware specifications jump over to the official Crowd Supply website by following the link below. Its creators explain that a “NUT2NT+ with an RA125 antenna can be used as a precision positioning GNSS receiver for autonomous cars. Today, autonomous vehicles are equipped with strong processing platforms, like NVIDIA Drive PX2. With NUT2NT+’s processing power, all MIPS hungry GNSS receiver tasks can be done in software. We have already tested NUT2NT+ board with NVIDIA Jetson TX2 board, the younger sibling of the Drive PX2.”
