Absolutely everything you need is built in and very simple to interface to with a multitude of connectivity options. Choose the building blocks you need from a fully independent solution with custom behaviors (think of remote command/control of drones), or a subcomponent of another computer system for expanding capabilities of your existing product line (remote data collection systems).
Starting with an engineering challenge to design the smallest possible satellite tracking device, the GSatMicro OEM not only delivers, it includes extremely advanced functionality in an astonishingly small package. Every component of the GSatMicro was designed to fit into a dense vertical stack. Satellite enable your projects that you never thought could be. We also included the latest antenna technology to utilize a single antenna for Iridium and GPS so you have a single antenna to install for telemetry and satellite connectivity.
Customize your GSatMicro OEM
This is a self radiating design that is the highest performance antenna and suggested for any human model applications, or applications where the orientation of the unit is not known. Available in an already packaged plastics with an SMA connector or an internal version made to be housed inside another housing.
A flat antenna design that is well suited for machine to machine applications or permanently mounted with an external antenna connector. These are typically used for aircraft and vehicles as they are thin and sturdy. These are also available in complete packaged versions with a TNC connector and a bare version to be mounted inside a case.
Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE):
Expand the functionality of the GSatMicro OEM by adding the BLE module which snaps onto the GSatMicro OEM main board. The BLE API is also open for your own development and we have a host of code to jump start your project.
For self powered operation, or operation on USB, add the 2500 mAh LiPo battery pack. This battery pack was custom designed with special LiPo materials to achieve a 20% increase in battery density. Also, the size was custom built to fit within the outline of the GSatMicro board for an efficient stackable design. (Nerd Note: Battery is required on USB as the peak current draw for the Iridium transmit frame exceeds the 500mA USB limit.)
Two flex circuit connectors on the GSatMicro OEM provide all of the I/O functionality and can be easily interfaced to with the I/O Board. The I/O Board provides both common connectors and solderable pins for your project. It includes Micro USB, DB9 RS232, DC power, 2 analog inputs, 2 relay outputs, 5 LEDs, and 3 N/O push buttons.
