Parallel GPS/GLONASS module measures 9.6x14.0x1.95mm with built-in antenna
November 09, 2012 // Julien Happich
Measuring 9.6x14.0x1.95mm with the built-in antenna, the UC530M from u-blox is claimed to be the world's smallest parallel GPS/GLONASS module.
The antenna module is easily embeddable in space-restricted environments and its integrated SMT design reduces the need for external components. With high sensitivity, -165 dBm in tracking, and an average power consumption of typically only 66mW, the UC530M can be directly connected to a lithium battery without a voltage regulator. Advanced low power modes are also supported along with 3 days self-assistance support. Additional functionality includes a logger function which stores location information in internal memory. With a typical log interval of 15 seconds, log capacity can be up to 16 hours.
The integrated antenna of the UC530M exhibits significantly better radiation efficiency than small patch antennas and performs well against larger and heavier patch antennas. Its circular radiation pattern brings flexibility to hardware design. The optional connectivity to an external antenna extends the applicability of the module to a wider range of devices from handheld computers to asset tracking systems.
