The BD920 GNSS Receiver Board from Trimble has reached End of Life (EOL). Please contact us to determine the best replacement product for your application.



The BD920 GNSS receiver board from Trimble is ideal for control and high-precision applications with its centimeter-level, Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning capabilities. The small, drop-in, solder-down module can receive a wide range of commercially available GNSS signals.

With the BD920 receiver board, you can embed proven Trimble RTK technology in mobile platforms to receive high quality GNSS signals for centimeter accuracy. As the module is fully shielded, the signals are protected from EMI sources on the host platform, thereby reducing radiated emissions. This in turn allows for fast compliance certification and time to market.

Choose the module configuration best suited for your application, including PS only and single frequency RTK. Functionality can be upgraded via passwords to cater for your changing requirements. For safety-critical applications, Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) and Fault Detection and Exclusion (FDE) are supported.

The Trimble BD920 can receive the E1 frequency from Galileo and the L1 and L2 frequencies from the GLONASS and GPS constellations. This enables quick and reliable RTK initializations for 1–2 centimeter positioning. If centimeter accuracy is not required, the unit contains an engine with a kalman filter PVT that provides high accuracy DGNSS, GNSS positions even in challenging environments like urban canyons.

Easily integrate the BD920 with your application through Ethernet connectivity available on the board, or use the USB and RS-232 ports provided. Integration is simplified and development times reduce through easy to use software commands.
