u-blox M8 concurrent GNSS modules

Compact u-blox M8 concurrent GNSS modules
The NEO-M8 series of standalone concurrent GNSS modules is built on the exceptional performance of the u-blox M8 GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and SBAS) engine in the industry proven NEO form factor.

The NEO-M8 series provides high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times while maintaining low system power. The NEO-M8M/Q are optimized for cost sensitive applications, while NEO-M8N provides best performance and easier RF integration.

Highlights
