Overview

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.
