NEO-M8 series - GPS/Galileo/GLONASS & BeiDou modules, 3 concurrent GNSS
Versatile GNSS modules in different variants for easy manufacturing
- Concurrent reception of up to 3 GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou)
- Industry leading -167 dBm navigation sensitivity
- Security and integrity protection
- Supports all satellite augmentation systems
- Advanced jamming and spoofing detection
- Product variants to meet performance and cost requirements
- Backward compatible with NEO‑7 and NEO‑6 families
The NEO‑M8 series provides high sensitivity and minimal acquisition times while maintaining low system power. The NEO‑M8M is optimised for cost sensitive applications, while NEO‑M8N and NEO‑M8Q provide best performance and easier RF integration. The NEO form factor allows easy migration from previous NEO generations. Sophisticated RF‑architecture and interference suppression ensure maximum performance even in GNSS‑hostile environments.
The NEO‑M8 combines a high level of robustness and integration capability with flexible connectivity options. The future‑proof NEO‑M8N includes an internal Flash that allows simple firmware upgrades for supporting additional GNSS systems. This makes NEO‑M8 perfectly suited to industrial and automotive applications. The DDC (I2C compliant) interface provides connectivity and enables synergies with most u‑blox cellular modules. For RF optimisation the NEO‑M8N/Q features an additional front‑end LNA for easier antenna integration and a front‑end SAW filter for increased jamming immunity.
u‑blox M8 modules use GNSS chips qualified according to AEC‑Q100, are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites, and fully tested on a system level. Qualification tests are performed as stipulated in the ISO16750 standard: “Road vehicles – Environmental conditions and testing for electrical and electronic equipment”.
