The NEO‑6 module series brings the high performance of the u‑blox 6 position engine to the miniature NEO 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 combine a high level of integration capability with flexible connectivity options in a small package. This makes them perfectly suited for mass‑market end products with strict size and cost requirements. The DDC interface provides connectivity and enables synergies with u‑blox LEON and LISA wireless modules. All NEO‑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.
