u-blox miniature GNSS receiver optimized for covert asset tracking

u-blox, a global specialist in wireless and positioning modules and chips, has announced the EVA-M8Q GNSS receiver, completing its lineup of receivers in the miniature and cost-effective EVA 7x7mm form-factor package.

The EVA-M8Q is TCXO-based and is optimized to provide the highest acquisition and tracking sensitivity, making it ideal for use with small antennas either in covert applications such as asset tracking and stolen vehicle recovery, or in portable devices.

“The key differentiator of the EVA-M8Q to the other cost effective EVA variants is the sensitivity,” said Stéphane Vincent, Product Strategy Director, Positioning, at u-blox. “This, along with the accuracy provided by concurrent reception of three GNSS constellations, enables an end-system and its antennas to be easily hidden within a vehicle or other high-value asset that need to be tracked.”

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. Three out of the four GNSS constellations can be received concurrently, which leads to highest positioning accuracy. 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. The modules will be in full production in Q4 2016.
