Housed in a tiny 15.5x15.5x6.3mm package, the SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver from u-blox features an integrated antenna and can be easily embedded in small devices that require location information, such as asset tracking and telematics systems.

The combination of an integrated wide-band antenna along with the module’s SAW filter and low-noise amplifier (LNA) architecture ensures that the SAM-M8Q receiver delivers robust performance in the presence of high frequency signals from other electronic equipment, such as cellular modems, which can cause interference. By using the latest u-blox M8 multi-GNSS receiver technology, the module is able to offer simultaneous reception of GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo satellite signals.
Samples of the SAM-M8Q will be available in mid-January 2017. The modules will be in full production in mid-February 2017.
