Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the NEO-F9P high-precision GNSS module from u-blox. Based on the company’s 184-channel F9 engine receiver platform, the NEO-F9P is a multi-band GNSS positioning module that caters to high-volume industrial applications in a compact form factor 50 percent smaller than the standard u-blox ZED footprint. This surface-mounted module enables reliable and precise navigation and automation of moving industrial machinery while providing easy integration, lower design costs, smaller EBOM and faster time-to-market.
The u-blox NEO-F9P, available from Mouser Electronics, is a high-precision, low-power consumption GNSS positioning module that features simultaneous reception of GPS/QZSS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou across the B1I, B2a, E1B/C, E5a, L1C/A, L1OF and L5 bands. The NEO-F9P is a multi-band device with L1/L5 Real Time Kinematics (RTK) that takes in standard GPS signals and a correction stream to achieve centimeter-level positional accuracy in seconds while delivering short convergence times (< 10 sec) and reliable, energy-efficient performance. Other device features of the NEO-F9P GNSS module include a TCXO Oscillator, a built-in RTC crystal, active continuous wave (CW) detection/removal, an onboard bandpass filter, anti-spoofing algorithms, comm interfaces and flash memory. The module supports both active and passive antennas and is ideally paired with the ANN-MB1 multi-band antenna.
The NEO-F9P module is available in a 24-pin, 12 mm x 16 mm x 3.6 mm LCC package. The module has an operating supply voltage of 2.7 V to 3.6 V and is specified at a temperature range of -40°C up to +85°C. The NEO-F9P also offers customers an effective upgrade path from the u-blox NEO-M8P model. Ideal for space-constrained designs, target industrial applications for the NEO-F9P module include precise navigation and automation in a wide range of smart antennas, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and mobile robotic devices.
For development, the NEO-F9P GNSS module is supported by the u-blox EVK-F9P-00 evaluation kit, which is also available from Mouser. The EVK-F9P-00 evaluation kit is a powerful and versatile tool for evaluating the performance of high-precision positioning products. The u-blox EVK-F9P-00 kit eliminates the need for an external power supply by providing a built-in USB interface power supply that also offers high-speed data transfer. This evaluation kit’s compact size and user-friendly interface make it ideal for various applications, including laboratories, vehicles and outdoor locations.
