MAX-M8Q-0: u-blox M8 Concurrent GNSS Modules

The MAX-M8 series of concurrent GNSS modules are built on the high performing u-blox M8 GNSS engine in the industry-proven MAX form factor.

The modules can concurrently receive up to three GNSS systems (GPS/Galileo) together with BeiDou or GLONASS). The MAX-M8 modules recognize multiple constellations simultaneously and provide outstanding positioning accuracy in scenarios with urban canyon or weak signals. The modules offer high performance even at low power consumption levels. For even better and faster positioning improvement, the MAX-M8 modules support augmentation of QZSS and IMES together with WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, and GAGAN.

The MAX-M8 modules support message integrity protection, Geofencing, and spoofing detection with configurable interface settings to easily fit to customer applications. The MAX form factor allows easy migration from previous MAX generations.

u-blox MAX-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”.

  • Concurrent reception of up to 3 GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou)
  • Industry leading -167 dBm navigation sensitivity
  • Product variants to meet performance and cost requirements
  • Miniature LCC package
  • Superior anti‑spoofing and anti‑jamming
  • Pin‑compatible with MAX‑7 and MAX‑6
