Positioning and connectivity modules are automotive-grade

Automotive-qualified modules have been added to the positioning and cellular wireless connectivity modules by u-blox. The NEO-M8Q-01A, NEO-M8L-01A, SARA-G350-02A and LISA-U201-03A are manufactured according to the ISO/TS 16949 automotive supply chain quality management standard.

The NEO-M8Q-01A and the NEO-M8L-01A positioning modules provide concurrent reception of GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo. The NEO-M8L-01A is suited to providing 100% dead reckoning positioning coverage even in areas of weak signal such as in tunnels or multi-story car parks, or those experiencing poor signal quality such as caused by multi-path reflections, says the company. It is qualified to operate in the -40 to +85°C. The NEO-M8Q-01 GNSS module is the first GNSS module able to operate across the extended automotive temperature range from -40 to +105°C.

The SARA-G350-02A is a quad-band GSM/GPRS data and voice connectivity module that is certified for provisioning global connectivity. The LISA-U201-03A also provides global connectivity with five HSPA bands, with data rates up to 7.2Mbit/s. Both accommodate the automotive operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

Samples are available in August and full production will commence in September.
