Small Form Factor
SMD and Rugged Packages
The VN-200 is available in two different packaging options: the surface mount device (SMD) and the “Rugged” module.
Introduced in 2012, the VN-200 was the first GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) in a single surface mount package. At the size of a postage stamp, the VN-200 SMD requires only a single 3.2-5.5V power supply, and can be directly embedded into a user’s electronics. Interface with the VN-200 SMD is made easy by using either the serial 3V TTL (UART) or the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI).
Size: 24 x 22 x 3 mm
Power: 105 mA @ 3.3 V
Mass: 4 g
The VN-200 Rugged is the “plug and play” version of the VN-200 SMD. Enclosed in a clamshell precision anodized aluminum enclosure, the VN-200 Rugged offers additional protection of the internal MEMs sensors, GPS receiver and electronics. The use of precision CNC milled aluminum parts ensures that the axis alignment provided by our factory calibration process is maintained during installation in its final configuration. Interfacing with the module is made through a locking 10-pin connector, as well as a MMCX connector for an external active GPS antenna.
Size: 36 x 33 x 9 mm
