7x7mm GNSS receiver targets covert asset tracking

August 11, 2016 // By Julien Happich
u-blox' EVA-M8Q GNSS receiver is a TCXO-based GNSS receiver optimized to provide the highest acquisition and tracking sensitivity, making it suitable for use with small antennas either in covert applications such as asset tracking and stolen vehicle recovery, or in portable devices.

The EVA-M8Q differentiates itself from other cost effective EVA variants through its high sensitivity and accuracy provided by the concurrent reception of three GNSS constellations. These two qualities enables an end-system and its antennas to be easily hidden within a vehicle or other high-value asset that need to be tracked, claims the Swiss manufacturer.
The ease of manufacturing offered by the QFN-like package suits requirements for medium to high volume production. While the highly integrated module of the EVA-M8 series allows OEMs to achieve a faster time-to-market. EVA-M8 series are the smallest GNSS modules featuring GPS, BeiDou, Galileo and GLONASS reception. The series also features anti-spoofing and anti-jamming technology to provide superior security and integrity protection. Samples of the EVA-M8Q are available now with full production expected in Q4 2016.
