The u‑blox PAM‑7Q patch antenna module has the exceptional performance of the u‑blox 7 GNSS engine and delivers high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times in an industry proven form factor. Incorporating the PAM‑7Q into customer designs is simple and straightforward, thanks to the embedded antenna, low power consumption, simple interface, and sophisticated interference suppression that ensures maximum performance even in GPShostile environments. The 18 x 18 mm patch antenna of PAM‑7Q provides RHCP polarization, which is not achievable with smaller patch antenna elements. The simple design and easy interfacing keeps installation costs to a minimum. PAM‑7Q targets industrial and consumer applications that require small and cost efficient smart antenna solutions. It is form factor compatible with UP501 module, allowing the upgrade of existing designs with minimal effort. PAM‑7Q modules use GPS chips qualified according to AEC‑Q100 and are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites. Qualification tests are performed as stipulated in the ISO16750 standard: “Road vehicles – Environmental conditions and testing for electrical and electronic equipment”. PAM‑7Q complies with green / halogen‑free standards.
