You could combine it with the LIS302DL, and AVR, and a flash memory chip to make a dirt cheap dead reckoning unit. Combine that with the Venus GPS (potentially with the Sarantel helical antenna and SMA661 antenna amp) to make an extremely accurate location finding device (INS + WAAS + GPS + AGPS = really accurate).
Also, the AD8351ARMZ from Analog Devices looks like a very useful RF amplifier for a Nordic board, potentially increasing its range tenfold (its gain is 26dB).
I think these products would be very useful if they had breakout boards and/or were integrated into Sparkfun products because:
A) They fill a gap in Sparkfun (no general LNA or 3 axis compass ic)
B) They are generally unsolderable to the average hobbyist
Anyone think this is a good idea?
Thanks for listening,
