u-blox integrated antenna GNSS Receiver eases embedded designs

19 JANUARY 2017

Ultra-compact SAM-M8Q module speeds time to market for system developers of GNSS applications who have limited experience in RF and antenna design

UB056(Fig)Englishu-blox, a global leader in wireless and positioning modules and chips, announced the SAM-M8Q https://www.u-blox.com/en/product/sam-m8q-module GNSS receiver with integrated antenna. Housed in a tiny 15.5 × 15.5 × 6.3 mm package, this module can be easily embedded in small devices that require location information, such as asset tracking and telematics systems, and generic automotive after-market applications.

The combination of an integrated wide-band antenna along with the module’s SAW filter and low-noise amplifier (LNA) architecture ensures that the SAM-M8Q receiver delivers robust performance in the presence of high frequency signals from other electronic equipment, such as cellular modems, which can cause interference. By using the latest u-blox M8 multi-GNSS receiver technology, the module is able to offer simultaneous reception of GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo satellite signals.

 

Samples of the SAM-M8Q will be available in mid-January 2017. The modules will be in full production in mid-February 2017.
