Thalwil, Switzerland – November 22, 2022 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, has announced the u-blox ZED-F9K-01A, a high-precision GNSS module with embedded advanced hardware, software, and latest generation IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) to provide an advanced, self-contained positioning solution. The module supports both L1/L2/E5B and L1/L5 bands for maximum flexibility, satellite availability, and security. It combines multi-band and multi-constellation global navigation satellite system (GNSS) technology with dead reckoning high-precision RTK (real-time kinematic), which enables decimeter-level accuracy.
The u-blox ZED-F9K-01A natively supports the u-box PointPerfect GNSS augmentation service. It delivers multiple GNSS and IMU outputs in parallel to support all possible architectures, including a 50 Hz sensor-fused solution with very low latency. It enables advanced real-time applications, while the optimized multi-band and multi-constellation capability maximizes the number of visible satellites even in urban conditions.
ZED-F9K-01A includes a dependable protection level output and advanced security features including anti-spoofing and anti-jamming. Operation up to 105 ºC makes it possible to integrate the product anywhere in the car without design constraints.
“The u-blox ZED-F9K-01A primarily targets ADAS applications, paving the way to full car autonomy. Being a fully integrated solution that includes the latest u-blox R&D technology for automotive, it helps OEMs greatly reduce their development efforts and time to market,” says Martin Wallebohr, Senior Product Manager Automotive GNSS, at u-blox.
ZED-F9K-01A will be on display at the upcoming CES 2023 tech event in Las Vegas, US at booth #10923. Samples of ZED-F9K-01A are already available for evaluation.
