Quectel L70 and L76 GPS Breakout Board
This is a board that allows you to use a Quectel L70 or L76 GPS with your microcontroller projects.
With a simple wire antenna the board and GPS will weight as little as 2g. The version with a small ceramic patch antenna weighs 5.9g. In is simplest build all you need to do is solder the GPS module to the board, add a 7 pin 0.1” header, a bit of stiff wire for an antenna and make two links.
There are options you can add to the board;
LED fix indicator
GPS backup for hot fixing
Lithium battery or super capacitor
Power switching to turn the GPS off and save power
Anti Static precautions
The board uses 0805 sized surface mount components to keep the size and weight down. All capacitors are ceramic chip types. The assembled GPS module is for use on 3.3V microcontroller projects only, do not connect directly to 5V microcontrollers such as the Arduino UNO, the details for assembling the board are in the documents below.
