After extensive testing, u-blox has released new positioning and cellular wireless modules for navigation systems, telematics, road tolling, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications.
 
The new positioning modules, NEO-M8Q-01A and NEO-M8L-01A, can receive concurrent GNSS signals from GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo. The NEO-M8Q-01A operates in automotive temperature ranges between minus 40 and 105 degrees. The NEO-M8L-01A provides 100 percent dead-reckoning coverage in such restricted coverage areas as multi-story car parks or in tunnels, according to the company.
 
NEO-M8Q-01A is built on the u-blox M8 GNSS engine. The NEO-M8L combines GNSS, inertial sensing, and speed information from a vehicle to provide continuous 3D positioning at rates as high as 20 hertz.
 
The new cellular wireless modules, SARA G350-02A and LISA-U201-03A, have a compact size and consume little power. Both modules can operate in an automotive temperature range between minus 40 and 85 degrees.
 
All of the modules were manufactured in an International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/TS 16949-certified facility with tested low failure rates, u-blox said.  The modules, available in quantity in September, will complete a company product portfolio that includes the V2X (vehicle-to-infrastructure) and Wi-Fi modules THEO, EMMY, and ELLA.
