EVA series GNSS modules 7.0 x 7.0 mm LGA pacakge MAX series GNSS modules 9.7 x 10.1 mm LCC package NEO series GNSS modules 12.2 x 16.0 mm LCC package LEA series GNSS modules 17.0 x 22.4 mm LCC package CAM-M8 series GNSS antenna modules 9.6 x 14.0 mm LCC package PAM-7Q GPS antenna module 22.0 x 22.0 mm 8 pin contact header Product overview u-blox offers a wide range of high-quality, scalable GNSS positioning modules based on the company’s high-performance u-blox M8 and low-power u-blox 8 chip technologies. • u-blox products are available in three grades optimized for our primary market sectors: automotive, industrial (professional) and consumer (standard). u-blox GNSS modules are perfectly suited for vehicle, industrial and M2M applications, as well as mass-market consumer products with demanding size, cost and quality requirements. For telematics applications, each module provides easy integration with u-blox 2G, 3G and 4G cellular modules. This scalable module approach means u-blox GNSS modules provide exactly the right product variant to deliver the performance, ease of integration, cost and size required by today’s as well as tomorrow’s demanding applications. • Support of all available GNSS (GPS/QZSS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou) and SBAS systems. When upgrading a product for improved performance, lower cost or both, compatibility between module generations and variants is maintained. This insures a smooth transition from older to newer designs, as well as between product variants to keep redesign costs minimal. This product philosophy enables lower R&D costs and protects the customer’s investment. • Two platform offerings:  u-blox M8 concurrent GNSS for maximum performance  u-blox 8 single GNSS as the economical choice • u-blox GNSS modules require no host integration and are made to keep customer’s eBOM to a minimum • Variants to meet performance and cost requirements and for different levels of integration (e.g. with or without integrated antenna) • Seamless operation with u-blox 2G, 3G, 4G cellular modules • Globally available, free-of-charge Assisted-GNSS service for accelerated positioning in difficult environments • Modules use u-blox’s own AEC-Q100 qualified chips • LCC modules are qualified according to ISO16750 standard and manufactured according to ISO/TS16949 • Pin-to-pin and software compatible with previous and future u-blox module generations of the same form factor Product selection u-blox GNSS modules are available in different form factors and variants to provide flexibility for scaling GNSS solutions to different application requirements, such as cost, performance and level of component integration. Crystal-based receiver Time & frequency reference receiver, VCTCXO-based Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) receiver with 3D intertial sensors Crystal-based receiver and low backup battery current TCXO-based receiver, upgradability (Flash) High precision GNSS receiver TCXO-based receiver TCXO-based receiver with short-circuit detection (antenna supervisor) Time sync receiver, TCXO-based Untethered Dead Reckoning (UDR) receiver with 3D inertial sensors TCXO-based receiver with short-circuit detection (antenna supervisor) * A few u-blox 7 product variants do not (yet) have direct successors in the u-blox 8 platform Scalable positioning module families combine optimized cost/performance features with easy integration

u-blox 8 single GNSS platform u-blox M8 concurrent GNSS platform Single GNSS reception is recommended for designs requiring competitive positioning and low system power. The u-blox 8 platform provides high sensitivity for positioning with fast acquisition times. Its sophisticated architecture ensures minimum power and competitive solution. Concurrent GNSS reception is recommended for best performance with difficult antenna placement or weak/blocked signal environments. u-blox M8 modules process signals concurrently from up to three GNSS systems to increase the number of visible satellites for...

High precision GNSS modules provide accuracy to within at least a meter. The NEO-M8P, with centimeter-level accuracy, uses Real Time Kinematic (RTK) technology to achieve the GNSS performance needed for unmanned vehicles and other applications requiring accurate guidance. Dead reckoning modules combine GNSS with measurements from sensors to deliver continuous, accurate positioning for road-vehicles in cities, tunnels and parking garages. The NEO-M8L (ADR) uses speed information from the vehicle providing the most accurate navigation performance. The NEO-M8U (UDR) operates independently of any...

When it comes to modules, u-blox adheres to a core design philosophy: maintain form factor and software compatibility to allow customers to easily upgrade their products with each new generation of u-blox positioning modules. The key benefit is simple: customers do not need to keep changing their PCB designs whenever u-blox introduces an improved version of a module product. Simply drop in the next generation module on the existing PCB and start testing! In-house GNSS chip technology u-blox’s in-house GNSS chip design expertise and end-to-end management of the entire IC and module manufacturing...
