How can I interface a GPS module with the sbRIO 9636?

Hello all,

 

 

I need to interface an EM-406A GPS module with the sbRIO 9636 development board and parse the NMEA message from the GPS to extract the latitude, longitude, and heading for use later. I am new to LabVIEW and don't even understand how to connect the GPS module to the board's RS232 port. All help is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Josh

Hi Josh

 

It will depends on how your want to communicate with the device, the easiest way is to use the serial port in the real time side or a little more challenging way using the FPGA, here is a forum with more information and some links that might get you started.

Thanks for the reply and links Esteban,

 

Easier is definitely better for me. The GPS module uses TX and RX for serial communication so I think I would like to connect it to the RS232 port on the board. I'll check your links for info on how to connect it.

 

Thanks,

Josh
