Environmental Requirements
The Universal Development kit is designed to be stored and operated between -40°C
and +85°C (-40°F and +185°F).
The optional Hemisphere GPS antennas available for this kit are designed to operate
in an outdoor environment and are waterproof.
Note: Refer to the OEM board Integrator’s Guide for environmental requirements for
your OEM board.
Powering the Kit
The Universal Development Kit accepts from 5 to 18 VDC and the supplied power
should be continuous and clean for best performance. The development kit will start
when an acceptable voltage is applied.
Do not apply a voltage higher than 18 VDC. This will damage the
receiver and void the warranty.
You can power the development kit in either of the following ways:
•
Connect the DC power cable to a suitable power source
a.
Connect the red wire of the cable’s power input to DC positive (+).
b.
Connect the black wire of the cable’s power input to DC negative (-).
A 1.0 A fast-blow fuse is equipped and situated in-line of the power input of
the power cable and protects the development kit from power surges. The
fuse container should remain accessible after installation.
Do not operate the Universal Development Kit with the fuse
bypassed. This will void the product warranty.
•
Connect the AC power adapter to the development kit
If the OEM board does not power on, make sure the internal power switch on the
carrier board is in the “ON” position (see Figure 2-2).
Figure 2-2: Carrier board ON/OFF switch
Connecting more than one source of power at a time can seriously
damage the unit and will void the warranty.

Serial Ports
The Universal Development Kit provides four RS-232 compatible serial ports (located
on the rear panel, see Figure 2-1 on page 6) for communicating with external data
loggers, navigation systems, PCs, and other devices. The serial ports are labeled Port
A, Port B, Port C, and Port D.
Ports A, B and/or C may be used for communication. Port D has been designed to
communicate with Hemisphere GPS’ SBX-4 DGPS beacon receiver to receive DGPS
corrections and only operates at 9600 baud with an 8 data bit, no parity, 1 stop bit
configuration (8-N-1). Additionally, Ports A, B or C may also receive external DGPS or
RTK corrections.
Note: The baud rate of the development kit’s serial ports and the devices they are
trying to communicate with must match. Refer to your OEM board’s documentation to
determine the default baud rate of your OEM board. Refer to the Hemisphere GPS

IMPORTANT - This is an agreement (the "Agreement") between you, the end purchaser ("Licensee") and Hemisphere
GPS Inc. ("Hemisphere") which permits Licensee to use the Hemisphere software (the "Software") that accompanies this
Agreement. This Software may be licensed on a standalone basis or may be embedded in a Product. Please read and

or transfer of the whole Product.
UPDATES. At Hemisphere's discretion Hemisphere may make Updates available to Licensee. An update
("Update") means any update to the Software that is made available to Licensee including error corrections,
enhancements and other modifications. Licensee may access, download and install Updates during the Warranty
Period only. All Updates that Licensee downloads, installs or uses shall be deemed to be Software and subject to this
Agreement. Hemisphere reserves the right to modify the Product without any obligation to notify, supply or install
any improvements or alterations to existing Software.
SUPPORT. Hemisphere may make available directly or through its authorized dealers telephone and email support
for the Software. Contact Hemisphere to find the authorized dealer near you. As well, Hemisphere may make

BACKUPS AND RECOVERY. Licensee shall back-up all data used, created or stored by the Software on a regular
basis as necessary to enable proper recovery of the data and related systems and processes in the event of a
malfunction in the Software or any loss or corruption of data caused by the Software. Licensee shall assume all risks
of loss or damage for any failure to comply with the foregoing.
OWNERSHIP. Hemisphere and its suppliers own all rights, title and interest in and to the Software and related
materials, including all intellectual property rights. The Software is licensed to Licensee, not sold.
TRADEMARKS. "Hemisphere GPS", "Outback Guidance", "BEELINE", "Crescent", "Eclipse" and the associated logos
are trademarks of Hemisphere. Other trademarks are the property of their respective owners. Licensee may not use
any of these trademarks without the consent of their respective owners.
LIMITED WARRANTY. Hemisphere warrants solely to the Licensee, subject to the exclusions and procedures set
forth herein below, that for a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase of the Product in which it is
embedded (the "Warranty Period"), the Software, under normal use and maintenance, will conform in all material
respects to the documentation provided with the Software and any media will be free of defects in materials and
workmanship. For any Update, Hemisphere warrants, for 90 days from performance or delivery, or for the balance of
the original Warranty Period, whichever is greater, that the Update, under normal use and maintenance, will
conform in all material respects to the documentation provided with the Update and any media will be free of
defects in materials and workmanship. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hemisphere does not warrant that the
Software will meet Licensee's requirements or that its operation will be error free.
WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS. The warranty set forth in Section (8) will not apply to any deficiencies caused by (a)
the Product not being used as described in the documentation supplied to Licensee, (b) the Software having been

malfunction of Licensee's equipment or other software, or (d) damage occurring in transit or due to any accident,
abuse, misuse, improper installation, lightning (or other electrical discharge) or neglect other than that caused by
Hemisphere. Hemisphere GPS does not warrant or guarantee the precision or accuracy of positions obtained when
using the Software (whether standalone or embedded in a Product). The Product and the Software is not intended
and should not be used as the primary means of navigation or for use in safety of life applications. The potential

positioning and navigation accuracy obtainable with the Software as stated in the Product or Software
documentation serves to provide only an estimate of achievable accuracy based on specifications provided by the
US Department of Defense for GPS positioning and DGPS service provider performance specifications, where
applicable.
WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT, HEMISPHERE MAKES NO
REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND TO LICENSEE, WHETHER VERBAL OR WRITTEN
AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND INCLUDING
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR THAT THE USE OF THE
SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS,
WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS ARISING AS A RESULT OF CUSTOM, USAGE OR TRADE AND THOSE ARISING
UNDER STATUTE.
LIMITS ON WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or
conditions, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to Licensee. In that case, any implied warranties or
conditions which would then otherwise arise will be limited in duration to ninety (90) days from the date of the
license of the Software or the purchase of the Product. The warranties given herein give Licensee specific legal rights
and Licensee may have other rights which may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
CHANGE TO WARRANTY. No employee or agent of Hemisphere is authorized to change the warranty provided or
the limitation or disclaimer of warranty provisions. All such changes will only be effective if pursuant to a separate
agreement signed by senior officers of the respective parties.
WARRANTY CLAIM. In the event Licensee has a warranty claim Licensee must first check for and install all
Updates that are made available. The warranty will not otherwise be honored. Proof of purchase may be required.
Hemisphere does not honor claims asserted after the end of the Warranty Period.
LICENSEE REMEDIES. In all cases which involve a failure of the Software to conform in any material respect to the
documentation during the Warranty Period or a breach of a warranty, Hemisphere's sole obligation and liability, and
Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy, is for Hemisphere, at Hemisphere's option, to (a) repair the Software, (b)
replace the Software with software conforming to the documentation, or (c) if Hemisphere is unable, on a
reasonable commercial basis, to repair the Software or to replace the Software with conforming software within
ninety (90) days, to terminate this Agreement and thereafter Licensee shall cease using the Software. Hemisphere
will also issue a refund for the price paid by Licensee less an amount on account of amortization, calculated on a
straight-line basis over a deemed useful life of three (3) years.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL HEMISPHERE BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES INCLUDING ARISING IN RELATION TO ANY LOSS OF DATA,
INCOME, REVENUE, GOODWILL OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS EVEN IF HEMISPHERE HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. FURTHER, IN NO EVENT WILL HEMISPHERE'S TOTAL CUMULATIVE
LIABILITY HEREUNDER, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY KIND, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY
LICENSEE TO HEMISPHERE TO PURCHASE THE PRODUCT. THIS LIMITATION AND EXCLUSION APPLIES
IRRESPECTIVE OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT,
NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL
THEORY AND WILL SURVIVE A FUNDAMENTAL BREACH.
LIMITS ON LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Some jurisdictions do not allow for the limitation or exclusion of liability for
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Licensee and Licensee
may also have other legal rights which may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
BASIS OF BARGAIN. Licensee agrees and acknowledges that Hemisphere has set its prices and the parties have
entered into this Agreement in reliance on the limited warranties, warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability set
forth herein, that the same reflect an agreed-to allocation of risk between the parties (including the risk that a
remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential loss), and that the same forms an essential basis
of the bargain between the parties. Licensee agrees and acknowledges that Hemisphere would not have been able
to sell the Product at the amount charged on an economic basis without such limitations.
PROPRIETARY RIGHTS INDEMNITY. Hemisphere shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Licensee from and
against any and all actions, claims, demands, proceedings, liabilities, direct damages, judgments, settlements, fines,
penalties, costs and expenses, including royalties and attorneys' fees and related costs, in connection with or arising
out of any actual infringement of any third party patent, copyright or other intellectual property right by the Software
or by its use, in accordance with this Agreement and documentation, PROVIDED THAT: (a) Hemisphere has the right
to assume full control over any action, claim, demand or proceeding, (b) Licensee shall promptly notify Hemisphere
of any such action, claim, demand, or proceeding, and (c) Licensee shall give Hemisphere such reasonable
assistance and tangible material as is reasonably available to Licensee for the defense of the action, claim, demand
or proceeding. Licensee shall not settle or compromise any of same for which Hemisphere has agreed to assume
responsibility without Hemisphere's prior written consent. Licensee may, at its sole cost and expense, retain
separate counsel from the counsel utilized or retained by Hemisphere.
INFRINGEMENT. If use of the Software may be enjoined due to a claim of infringement by a third party then, at its
sole discretion and expense, Hemisphere may do one of the following: (a) negotiate a license or other agreement so
that the Product is no longer subject to such a potential claim, (b) modify the Product so that it becomes noninfringing, provided such modification can be accomplished without materially affecting the performance and
functionality of the Product, (c) replace the Software, or the Product, with non-infringing software, or product, of
equal or better performance and quality, or (d) if none of the foregoing can be done on a commercially reasonable
basis, terminate this license and Licensee shall stop using the Product and Hemisphere shall refund the price paid by
Licensee less an amount on account of amortization, calculated on a straight-line basis over a deemed useful life of
three (3) years.
The foregoing sets out the entire liability of Hemisphere and the sole obligations of Hemisphere to Licensee in
respect of any claim that the Software or its use infringes any third party rights.
INDEMNIFICATION. Except in relation to an infringement action, Licensee shall indemnify and hold Hemisphere
harmless from any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable fees of
lawyers and other professionals) arising out of or in connection with Licensee's use of the Product, whether direct or
indirect, including without limiting the foregoing, loss of data, loss of profit or business interruption.

TERMINATION. Licensee may terminate this Agreement at any time without cause. Hemisphere may terminate this
Agreement on 30 days notice to Licensee if Licensee fails to materially comply with each provision of this
Agreement unless such default is cured within the 30 days. Any such termination by a party shall be in addition to
and without prejudice to such rights and remedies as may be available, including injunction and other equitable
remedies. Upon receipt by Licensee of written notice of termination from Hemisphere or termination by Licensee,
Licensee shall at the end of any notice period (a) cease using the Software; and (b) return to Hemisphere (or destroy
and provide a certificate of a Senior Officer attesting to such destruction) the Software and all related material and
any magnetic or optical media provided to Licensee. The provisions of Sections 6), 7), 8), 9), 10), 15), 21), 26) and 27)
herein shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason.
EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. Licensee agrees that Licensee will comply with all export control legislation of Canada,
the United States, Australia and any other applicable country's laws and regulations, whether under the Arms
Export Control Act, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, the Export Administration Regulations, the
regulations of the United States Departments of Commerce, State, and Treasury, or otherwise as well as the export
control legislation of all other countries.
PRODUCT COMPONENTS. The Product may contain third party components. Those third party components may
be subject to additional terms and conditions. Licensee is required to agree to those terms and conditions in order to
use the Product.

failure, act of God, or governmental action not the fault of the non-performing party.
FORUM FOR DISPUTES. The parties agree that the courts located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the courts of
appeal there from will have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes between Licensee and Hemisphere
concerning this Agreement or Licensee's use or inability to use the Software and the parties hereby irrevocably
agree to attorn to the jurisdiction of those courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may apply to any court
of competent jurisdiction for injunctive relief.
APPLICABLE LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Alberta, Canada, exclusive of
any of its choice of law and conflicts of law jurisprudence.
CISG. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this
Agreement or any transaction hereunder.

use of the same, and supersedes all prior, collateral or contemporaneous oral or written representations, warranties
or agreements regarding the same. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement will be binding unless in
writing and signed by duly authorized representatives of the parties. Any and all terms and conditions set out in any
correspondence between the parties or set out in a purchase order which are different from or in addition to the

User’s Manual and Specifications, AND the Product is not modified or misused. The Product is provided “AS IS” and the
implied warranties of MERCHANTABILITY and FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE and ALL OTHER WARRANTIES,
express, implied or arising by statute, by course of dealing or by trade usage, in connection with the design, sale,

any party other than a Hemisphere GPS approved service center shall render this warranty null and void. The remedy in
this paragraph shall only be applied in the event that the Product is properly and correctly installed, configured, interfaced,
maintained, stored, and operated in accordance with Hemisphere GPS’s relevant User’s Manual and Specifications, AND
the Product is not modified or misused. NO OTHER REMEDY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SPECIAL, INDIRECT,
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR CONTINGENT DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES, INJURY TO PERSON OR
PROPERTY, OR ANY OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS) SHALL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASER, even if
Hemisphere GPS has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, Hemisphere GPS
shall not be liable for any damages of any kind resulting from installation, use, quality, performance or accuracy of any
Product.
HEMISPHERE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PURCHASER’S NEGLIGENCE OR UNAUTHORIZED USES OF THE

RESPONSIBLE for defects or performance problems resulting from (1) misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect of
Product; (2) the utilization of the Product with hardware or software products, information, data, systems, interfaces or
devices not made, supplied or specified by Hemisphere GPS; (3) the operation of the Product under any specification other
than, or in addition to, the specifications set forth in Hemisphere GPS’s relevant User’s Manual and Specifications; (4)
damage caused by accident or natural events, such as lightning (or other electrical discharge) or fresh/salt water
immersion of Product; (5) damage occurring in transit; (6) normal wear and tear; or (7) the operation or failure of operation
