ZOE-M8G offers high location accuracy by concurrently connecting to GPS, Galileo and either GLONASS or BeiDou. It also provides -167 dBm receiver sensitivity. It is a fully integrated, complete GNSS solution with built-in SAW-filter and Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). This means it can be used with passive antennas, without the need for additional components. The module measures 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.0 mm; a complete GNSS design takes approximately 30% less PCB area compared to a conventional discrete chip design with a CSP chip GNSS receiver.
Samples of the u-blox ZOE-M8G will be available in February 2017 and volume production will start in October 2017.
