DNA-GPS – GPS interface for PowerDNA, UEILogger, and UEIPAC

GPS interface for PowerDNA, UEILogger, and UEIPAC

The DNA-GPS provides a high performance GPS receiver capability for PowerDNA and UEILogger Cubes. The GPS provides location information with a positional error less than 3 meters in areas served by the WAAS (most of North America) and 15 meter accuracy worldwide.

This product is not recommended for new designs. Please contact us.


  • Better than 3 meter accuracy (using WAAS)
  • Simple connection to DNA-SL-501 serial interface board
  • 1 PPS synchronized to UTC within 1 µS
  • Product includes DNA-STP-GPS break-out panel
  • Requires less than 600 mW
  • Compatible with all popular NMEA protocols

In addition to providing location information, the GPS is an ideal source of accurate time/date information. Finally, the GPS 1 PPS (pulse per second) output is synchronized to UTC time within ±1 microsecond. This makes the GPS’s 1 PPS signal an exceptionally accurate means to synchronize systems, whether across the room, or across the continent.
The DNA-GPS provides the two GPS serial ports on standard DB9 connectors and maps the 1 PPS signal directly into the Cube’s sync connector (as well as a BNC). DNA-STP-GPS receives power from a standard Cube daisy-chain connector. An on board LED flashes on each 1 PPS signal, allowing a quick visual confirmation of proper GPS operation and satellite synchronization. The DNA-GPS includes all the appropriate cables required to interface the various GPS signals to the Cube.
