Communication Interface

The SL869 offers several ways of communication between itself and the host processor. For simplicity in this document, the interface described in the examples is in UART mode.

Commands

A command is a defined Data Packet sent from a host processor to the GPS-Baseband

Controller. The regular structure of the command is command-ID, <parameters> <cr><lf>

The user interaction with the EVK can be achieved through the use of a PC terminal emulator program that is connected to the appropriate COM port with settings of:

 9600 Baud

 0 Parity Bits

 1 Stop Bit

 8 Data Bit

7.2. Messages Description

The table below summarizes the periodic output messages of the SL869:

Message ID Description

$GPGGA

$GNGSA

$--GSV

NMEA: Global Position System fix data

NMEA: GNSS Dilution of Precision (DOP) and active satellites

NMEA: GNSS satellites in view. “GP” talker ID reports

GPS, “GL” talker ID reports GLONASS satellites.

$GPRMC NMEA: Recommended minimum specific GNSS data

$PSTMNOTCHSTATUS ST Proprietary: Reports the notch filter status

All messages are output once per second. There are multiple GSA and GSV messages output each second.
