The u-blox NEO-M9N is a powerful GPS unit that now comes populated on a MicroMod Function Board! In this tutorial, we will quickly get you set up using it with the MicroMod ecosystem and Arduino so that you can start reading the output.
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need the following materials. You may not need everything though depending on what you have. Add it to your cart, read through the guide, and adjust the cart as necessary.
MicroMod Main Board
To hold the processor board and function board, you will need one Main Board. Depending on your application, you may choose to have one or two additional function boards.
MicroMod Processor Board
There are a variety of MicroMod Processor Boards available to choose from. We recommend getting the ones that are Arduino compatible.
MicroMod Function Board
To add additional functionality to your Processor Board, you'll want to include one or two function boards when connecting them to the Main Board. Besides the NEO-M9N, you could add an additional function board for your project if you have the Main Board - Double.
You will need a screw driver to secure the Processor and Function boards.
