Swift strives to make it easy to use and integrate Piksi. To that end, we have accumulated a list of useful accessories for building prototype systems with off-the-shelf components for test and evaluation.Tripods:Often it is helpful to place antennas on a tripod. At Swift we have used Cameras tripods intended for photographers and Light stands intended for video and film production. The 1/4X20 to 5/8X11 thread adapter included with the Piksi Multi Evaluation kit should make it easy and simple to use either tripod type with the Antennas provided with the Piksi Multi evaluation kit. Here are two possible tripods that have worked well at Swift.Set of two photography light stands: Polaroid photography tripod: One easy way to mount equipment such as evaluation kit components on these tripods is with handlebar mounts intended for cameras such as this one. You can also use this handlebar adapter to attach your antenna to a vehicle.Other antenna optionsThe antenna provided with the Piksi Multi evaluation kit has excellent performance for it's value. When selecting other antennas, it is imperative to make sure the antenna can receive the same L1 and L2 bands that Piksi is able to receive. Here are a few other antenna optionsMaxtenna m1227hct-a2-sma (helical antenna appropriate for uavs): Available for sale off-the-shelf here: Tallysman wireless TW3870 antennaSerial AdaptersThe Piksi Multi evaluation board has two RS232 level Serial ports with DB9 Connectors. It should be compatible with most RS-232 to usb adapter including this one. It is important to note that some usb to serial adapters may not support Baudrates greater than 115200. If instead TTL level serial is preferred, the evaluation board is compatible with the 5 pin headers such as those found on this serial adapter: Page Swift Navigation, Inc.
