u-blox has released the M9 Global Positioning Technology Platform, UBX-M9140 GNSS chip, and NEO-M9N GNSS module. M9 devices are capable of receiving concurrent signals from GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo GNSS constellations, which helps deliver horizontal positional accuracies as close as 1.5 m even in dense urban canyon environments. A 25 Hz position update rate also supports low-latency positional information.
In addition, M9 devices integrate surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters, low noise amplifier (LNA) filters, and advanced detection algorithms that protect against RF interference (from co-located celluar modems, for example), jamming, and spoofing.
The technologies are compliant with ISO/TS 16949, ISO 16750, and AEC-Q100 standards. The UBX-M9140 GNSS chip is available in a 5 mm x 5 mm QFN package rated for industrial and automotive use. The NEO-M9N is a 12.2 mm x 16 mm headless chip carrier package that is rated for industrial use and compatible with other u-blox NEO products.
The compatibility of the NEO platform means that users will be able to migrate to technologies like dead reckoning in the future.
u-blox has also announced the XPLR-M9 Explorer Kit development board, which is accompanied by the company’s u-start software.
