u-blox M8 concurrent multi-GNSS receiver single-chips for automotive, industrial and consumer applications

UBX-M8030 concurrent multi-GNSS receiver chips

The UBX-M8030 is the newest generation of standalone positioning chips from u-blox. The high performance u-blox M8 position engine delivers exceptional sensitivity and acquisition times utilizing concurrent reception of GPS, QZSS, GLONASS and BeiDou satellite signals.

u-blox M8 chips feature low power consumption in concurrent reception mode, thanks to an innovative single-die architecture combined with sophisticated software algorithms. In cases where single constellation reception is acceptable, the total power consumption can be as low as 12 mW in Power Save Mode.

The extended voltage supply range and 1.8 V and 3.0 V I/O compliance support a wide variety of user applications. Sophisticated RF-Architecture and interference suppression using active CW jamming detection ensure maximum performance even in GNSS hostile environments.
