Integrated wide-band antenna module speeds up time to market

A GNSS receiver with integrated antenna has been announced by u-blox, the SAM-M8Q. Housed in a 15.5x15.5x6.3mm package, this module can be easily embedded in small devices that require location information, such as asset tracking and telematics systems and generic automotive after-market applications.

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.

“The SAM-M8Q is intended for customers who don’t have much experience in RF and antenna design,” said Kim Kaisti, Director, Product Management, Product Center Positioning. He added, “It is aimed at applications that require an embedded antenna and where the surface mount package allows for easier assembly and installation in the end-equipment.”
