ublox

UBX-48030 core-positioning platform

The u-blox M8 core-positioning platform is based on the UBX-M8030 concurrent multi-Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receiver IC, which can track US GPS, European Galileo, Japanese QZSS, Russian GLONASS, and Chinese BeiDou satellites. The platform simultaneously uses multiple satellite systems and forms the basis of u-blox’s upcoming line of positioning modules that can concurrently acquire and track different satellite systems to achieve higher accuracy and reliability.

The u-blox M8 platform features low power consumption in concurrent reception mode via a single-die architecture combined with sophisticated software algorithms. The extended supply voltage supply range and 1.8-/3-V I/O compliance supports a variety of system architectures.

UBX-M8030 chips are available in miniature WL-CSP (2.99-mm × 3.21-mm × 0.36-mm) and QFN (5-mm × 5-mm × 0.59-mm) packages. The chip is also available in automotive-grade quality that complies with the Automotive Electronics Council’s AEC-Q100.The new platform maintains backward compatibility with u-blox 7 modules and QFP chip products.
