Technical Note

The MAX‑6 module series brings the high performance of the u‑blox 6 position engine to the ultra miniature MAX form factor. u‑blox 6 has been designed with low power consumption and low costs in mind. Intelligent power management is a breakthrough for low‑power applications. These receivers provide high performance and a high level of integration capability in a tiny package. This makes them perfectly suited for end products with strict size and cost requirements. The DDC interface provides connectivity and enables synergies with u‑blox wireless modules. All MAX‑6 modules are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites. Each module is tested and inspected during production. The modules are qualified according to ISO 16750 - Environmental conditions and electrical testing for electrical and electronic equipment for road vehicles.
