The MAX-M8Q is the company’s third automotive grade GNSS module to date, alongside the NEO-M8Q-01A and NEO-M8L-03A modules, further enlarging the automotive positioning product offer.
The new product is designed to meet the stringent requirements of the automotive market, providing superior positioning accuracy even in challenging environments such as urban canyons. Its extended temperature range (-40°C to 105°C) ensures reliable operation even in harsh environments, e.g. when mounted in a car-roof antenna. Produced in adherence to the u‑blox 0 ppm program, which aims to bring down product failures rates to zero and consistently achieve high production quality, the module is delivered with the automotive industry’s standard PPAP documentation to ensure compliance with customer requirements.
The module offers product developers a reduction of design and qualification time and effort, shortening time-to-market and considerably reducing risks for new product development.
Product developers will be able to get their hands on initial samples of MAX-M8Q-01A by mid-December 2017.
