Making things for the Raspberry Pi
BerryGPS-IMU has been specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero. It is also compatible with all other versions Raspberry Pi.
BerryGPS-IMU is a GPS module which also includes all the sensors found in the BerryIMU.
Here is a list of all the sensors found on the BerryGPS-IMU:
BerryGPS-IMU uses the M10478-A2 from Antenova, which is high quality GPS module which is able to track 22 satellites.
Built in antenna:
BerryGPS-IMU comes with an inbuilt antenna.
The SuperCap keeps the ephemeris data stored in the battery backup RAM for 2 hours. This allows for faster acquisitions when the module is power cycled.
The fix LED will flash once a second when a fix has been obtained. The fix signal is also presented on an output pin.
BerryGPS-IMU also includes Pulse Per Second(PPS) functionality. With a LED which will flash on every pulse and an output pin to be used by a microcontroller for time syncing.
Include and pin to place the GPS module into standby mode.
Periodic mode is a module controlled mode that reduces current consumption by only waking the module for short periods to maintain fix data.
Connection for external antenna:
BerryGPS-IMU also includes a uFL connector for an external antenna, which can be used when BerryGPS-IMU doesn't have clear access to the sky.
Dimensions; 65 mm x 30 mm
Weight = 6gm
GPS Module MT3337
An inertial measurement unit, or IMU, measures and reports on velocity, orientation and gravitational forces, using a combination of an accelerometer, gyroscope and a magnetometer.
BerryGPS-IMU is also fitted with a barometric sensor (BMP280) which can be used to calculate altitude. A temperature sensor is also included. IMUs can be found in devices like, quad copters, smart phones, segways, Wii Remote etc.. and are used to sense movement and orientation.
IMU sensor LSM9DS0
Barometric Sensor BMP180
BerryGPS-IMU should only be powered with a 3.3v power supply.
Raspberry Pi not included.
We also have an optional external antenna.
Connecting this antenna to your BerryGPS will improve its GPS reception by 28dB.
An external antenna is useful your BerryGPS doesn’t have clear access to the sky. E.g. when used in doors.
This antenna is waterproof and also has a magnetic base, it is 3 meters in length and uses a SMA connector.
Comes with a uFL to SMA adapter to assist with connecting this antenna to a BerryGPS.

Some very basic soldering is required to solder on the female header. If you would like us to solder the header for you (at no cost), please leave a note when ordering.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
After hours, we like to prototype with the Raspberry Pi, build autonomous robots and anything Star Wars .
We have been doing this for a few years and have built up a good set of skills, which we like to share.
