The new Shimmer Dock has been released, and adds a number of updates to its predecessor the USB Reader. The Dock has a slim new design, adds greater functionality via an integrated GPS module, and replaces the pin hole reset with a reset button for greater ease of use.
The GPS module will transmit serial GPS NMEA sentences to the docked Shimmer’s external connector UART lines. This data can be used for application synchronization or localization and will provide users with accurate location and global time data in the development of Shimmer based applications.
The Dock also includes the standard features that where associated with USB reader such as programming, charging, and an integrated USB Flash Media Controller.
