Short range low power wireless devices and Internet of Things (IoT)

This paper discusses the topic of the “last 100 meters connectivity” in systems where small devices (such as various sensors) are connected to services on a wide-area Internet network. Subject matters covered are the requirements on the “last 100 meters connectivity” vision as well as what wireless technologies would be suitable for future Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. This paper also presents the background to why u-blox envisions the “last 100 meters connectivity” is an important factor in the area of IoT and u-blox’ view on the impact of IoT in general.

GNSS antenna modules - Global positioning made easy

As more and more products and devices integrate global positioning as a standard feature, a performance optimized “GNSS antenna module” which combines both satellite receiver chip and antenna on the same module can be a good solution. These modules provide fast time-to-market, simplified logistics and an economically viable solution for “instant” positioning. This whitepaper describes the advantages and design aspects of using a GNSS antenna module.
