Drop-in GPS/QZSS positioning with u-blox PAM-7Q antenna module

Compact module delivers instant global positioning; no additional components required.

Swiss-based u‑blox, a global leader in cellular and positioning modules and integrated circuits, announces the PAM-7Q GPS/QZSS antenna module. The module integrates a satellite receiver IC plus all passives and a pre-tuned GPS antenna in a compact 22 x 22 x 8 mm package. Combining low power consumption with high-sensitivity, sophisticated noise suppression and I2C / UART interfaces, the PAM-7Q makes integration of global positioning as simple as possible.

Thomas Nigg, VP Product Marketing at u-blox, explains:

“For small and medium production runs, sourcing and tuning of an external GPS antenna can be expensive and logistically difficult. The PAM-7Q is a perfect, drop-in solution to this problem. It provides instant, high-performance global positioning, no additional components are necessary.”

u-blox PAM-7Q GPS antenna modulePAM-7Q can be easily integrated into pre-existing designs or soldered with a pin-header to a customized PCB. The simple design and easy interfacing keeps installation costs to a minimum. The 18 x 18 mm patch antenna is designed for optimal antenna performance independent of orientation. High immunity to jamming is achieved through integration of dual SAW filters. PAM-7Q targets industrial and consumer applications that require a small, fast and cost efficient solution to GPS/QZSS positioning.

The PAM-7Q module uses GPS/QZSS chips qualified according to AEC-Q100 and are manufactured in ISO/TS 16949 certified sites. Qualification tests are performed as stipulated in the ISO16750 standard: “Road vehicles – Environmental conditions and testing for electrical and electronic equipment”.

The module is form-factor compatible with its predecessor, the UP501.

Detailed information about the PAM-7Q and evaluation kit EVK-7PAM can be found on the u-blox website. For samples and evaluation information contact the u-blox office.
