The NEO-M8Q-01A is a ROM-based Automotive Grade concurrent GNSS module, targeted for use in hazardous environments such as automotive applications. The module is built on the exceptional performance of u‑blox M8 GNSS (GPS/QZSS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou) engine in the industry proven NEO form factor.
The NEO-M8Q-01A provides high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times while maintaining low system power. The automotive grade module is optimized for applications where an extended operational temperature range (-40 °C to +105 °C) is required. The sophisticated RF architecture and interference suppression ensure maximum performance even in GNSS-hostile environments.
The NEO‑M8Q-01A combines a high level of robustness and integration capability along with flexible connectivity options via USB, I2C, UART and SPI. The DDC (I2C compliant) interface provides connectivity and enables synergies with most u‑blox cellular modules.
With sophisticated message signature capabilities and spoofing detection, the NEO-M8Q-01A automotive grade module offers high protection against malicious positioning interference.
The NEO-M8Q-01A uses GNSS chips qualified according to AEC‑Q100. The modules are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites and fully tested on a system level. Qualification tests are performed as stipulated in the ISO 16750 standard: “Road vehicles – Environmental conditions and testing for electrical and electronic equipment”.
The NEO-M8Q-01A automotive grade module adheres to automotive industry standard quality specifications and production flow.
