Users of the u-blox M9 will therefore benefit from it being part of the wider u-blox product family, which means that developers will be able to design a single PCB and then migrate to a different positioning technology, such as dead reckoning augmenting GNSS technology, with very little change to the board design.
The introduction of the u-blox M9 is accompanied by the release of the Explorer Kit M9 (XPLR-M9) development board. The plug-and-play device is supplied with u-start software, which includes a number of preset scenarios to enable users to explore the performance of the new device.
The u-blox M9 technology platform complies with the ISO/TS 16949, ISO 16750, AEC-Q100 standards. Engineering samples of the NEO-M9N, the first module based on the M9 platform, the UBX-M9140 high performance chip, and the Explorer Kit are available now.
