Introduction
Together with a Texas Instruments MSP-EXP430F5438, MSP-EXP430F5529 or Stellaris LM3S9B96
Cortex M3 EVB (all not included) and a dedicated test firmware, the TC6000GN-EM1 evaluation
board provides a plug-and-play solution to demonstrate the performance and functionality of the
TC6000GN-P1 GPS module.
For technical specification, please refer to the TC6000GN-P1 datasheet.
For application information and GPS antenna layout implementation, the TC6000GN Design Guide
and “GPS Antenna Connection” Design Guide are available. Applications were two GPS antennas
should be used, a special GPS antenna evaluation board “GPS SPDT switch” can be ordered.
The specific documents and reference layout in Gerber-file format are available for download at
http://www.forum.gns-gmbh.com/ .
This document describes the TC6000GN-EM1 EvalKit hardware in detail.
Since the test FW is provided in source code, it can be easily used to start a GPS development on it.
As a further feature, the test FW routes all GPS data (NMEA) directly to the USB port, which can be
connected to a PC.

Micro-Coax Connector
TC6000GN-EM1 uses the Murata micro-coax connector “MM8030-2600” to provide the possibility to inject
GPS signals from a GPS simulator or to use an active GPS antenna. The MM8030 implements connector and
switch functionality in one item.
Is no connector placed, the on-board GPS chip antenna will be used for receiving GPS signals.
Is a connector placed the signal path to the on-board GPS chip antenna is disconnected and connected to the
Murata measurement probe “MXHQ87WA3000”, which had to be used for connecting the MM8030-2600.
The measurement probe must be separately ordered from Murata.
