u-blox ZOE-M8B tiny GNSS SiP module


Ultra small, super low power u-blox M8 GNSS SiP module.

ZOE-M8B is u-blox’s ultra small, highly integrated GNSS SiP (System in Package), measuring just 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.0 mm. Making use of the Super-Efficient (Super-E) mode, ZOE-M8B offers an ideal balance between miniature size, low power consumption and good GNSS performance. ZOE-M8B uses up to 2.5 times less power than its pin-to-pin compatible counterpart, ZOE-M8G (running in 1 Hz full power mode), while still maintaining good positioning and speed accuracy.

An average power consumption over a typical 30-minute track will be as low as 25 mW. This is true even when using an industrial antenna design with moderate-to-low signal levels. Super-E has a default performance setting for the best balance between power vs. performance.

It also has a power save setting for additional power savings with potential compromise on performance. The TCXO-based ZOE-M8B integrates a front-end SAW filter and an additional front-end LNA for increased jamming immunity and easier antenna integration. A passive antenna can be used to provide a highly integrated system solution with minimal eBOM.

Ultra small, ultra low power GNSS SiP with Super-E mode

  • Ultra small size SiP (System‑in‑Package) 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.0 mm
  • Fully integrated and complete solution, reducing total design efforts
  • As low as 12 mW power consumption thanks to Super‑E mode
  • Ideal for passive antenna, due to built‑in SAW and LNA
  • High accuracy thanks to concurrent reception of up to 3 GNSS
  • Pin‑to‑pin compatible with ZOE‑M8G

Does ZOE-M8B requires DC Block capacitor at its RF in Pin?
